This hostel has everything going for it. It’s new, safe, quiet, and spotless; it's housed in a huge architecturally interesting 19th-century building; it's managed by a competent and caring staff; and, best of all, it's right on the edge of the Downtown music scene. No wonder this is rated one of the best hostels in the country. Both dormitory-style accommodations and private rooms are available, and the common area includes computer stations, a community kitchen, a lounge, laundry facilities, and a stage for impromptu jam sessions. Nightlife is only steps away: Riverfront Tavern, a sports bar and restaurant, serves a fine assortment of beer and pub food in the same building, and the hustle and bustle of Second Avenue is just on the other side of the block. Budget-conscious travelers looking to connect with visitors from around the world won't find anywhere better than this in Music City.
