    Best hostel I’ve stayed in. They even had parking, something I’ve never seen before at a hostel.

    So I drove up to Columbus on a whim to catch a concert. I booked a room at the Wayfaring Buckeye sort out of necessity, and never expected to have such an excellent experience. The Hostel was large, extremely clean, had great amenities (breakfast, hot tub etc), and had a very inviting atmosphere. Rob, the caretaker was super friendly, a wonderful host, and very accommodating to all the guests needs. One of the best hostel experiences I've had, not only in the US but, anywhere. 10/10

    This was probably one of my favorite hostel stays! The location was great! Breweries and downtown were just a scooter ride away. Everything was clean, free breakfast, tvs to watch, a kitchen to cook in, a game room... you couldnt ask for more! The owner is super nice and will do whatever he can to make sure your stay is awesome! I'd definitely come back here.

    I plan on moving back to Columbus, Ohio, after I file for my next income tax return. I may want to stay at The Wayfaring Buckeye again.

    The hostel was nice, clean, and kept up pretty well. The staff was also really nice. The location is close to the bus stop to go downtown which made it convenient. I did find it a little weird that there was no one there to greet me when I arrived though, and while everything was clearly spelled out in the various notes around the house it seemed kind of impersonal without much interaction with staff on the first day. Otherwise, everything was fine and I would stay there again.

    Very satisfied with my stay. Staff was responsive. Had the whole attic area to the 5-bed dorm to myself. The ceiling was real low, which was kind of odd. Overall, nothing to complain about. It’s just outside of walking distance from High Street where all the bars are, but there’s bikes widely available (though their own biking service was not running due to COVID) . Parking was also free downtown after 10pm. The mask mandate in the living space was strange, considering how low COVID numbers are.
