Property Description

Hostel du Nord is thrilled to be the first experience of its kind in Duluth, offering unique, affordable, and stylish comfort in the heart of Downtown. Our staff will be ready to provide you with a personalized itinerary, and connect you with the activities that inspire you — whether that be outdoor adventures, historic landmarks, music hotspots, craft brews, farm-to-fork dining, the best views of the world’s biggest lake, or the soothing silence of our authentic wood-fired Sauna! We gave the historic Garon Brothers Jewelers building a complete makeover to prepare for our October 2018 grand opening, and we are ready to host you and yours today. Hostel du Nord has preserved the historic detailing and features of the original building, reimagining the landmark architecture, ensuring that whatever your budget or adventure, you’ll have a home base that feels like home.

Hostel du Nord is located in downtown Duluth, MN. It is only minutes away from Duluth's famous lift bridge, park point beach which is on Lake Superior and the canal park area. Myriad shops, restaurants, and night life is also just a stones throw away. Nord also happens to be a sister company to Duluth's premier music venue, The Red Herring Lounge, featuring live music and DJs 3-4 nights a week.

Unlike a traditional hostel, Hostel du Nord does not offer typical “dorm style” accommodation. There are no rooms full of bunks, and no private rooms. The “rooms” are the first and third floors, and the “bunks” are actually enclosed sleeping compartments with curtains for privacy. Each guest receives their own bunk (top/bottom, single/double) as well as a locker for storing personal affects. Ladders are provided for access to upper bunks. Each floor has multiple private bathrooms which are shared among guests, as well as shared lounge spaces for relaxing and socializing. The entire second floor is the lobby, open to all guests and visitors. There you will find: the reception desk, as well as a large, shared kitchenette, dining area, lounge, and access to Duluth’s elaborate, indoor skywalk system.

Meh. Expensive for what it is. I waited for over an hour to check-in, even after talking to some guy that said he “kinda” worked there. He told me he just “spaced” after talking to me on the phone. Weird long-term tenants staying that gave the place a strange vibe.

This hostel felt a bit overpriced for sharing a room with 30 people, even with the own “cubby” to yourself. Most of the workers were friendly and helpful and it was conveniently located in downtown to many shops. Bus system was very close too if you wanted to explore other parts of Duluth.

Cool setup, private enclosed “pods” in a large open room. Lights are a little bright at night m, parking is a little sparse/confusing for a place 2 hours away from a major airport, and the doors are sometimes propped open - but the staff was awesome and environment was really mellow. Enjoyed my stay.
