We stayed for 2 nights while we explored the city and went to see Rising Appalachia featuring Arouna Diarra at Rumba Cafe that is only 2 blocks away from the hostel.

Liked: We loved the whole experience. It was new for us.

Trapped in Attic

Liked: The location close to Ohio State University was great with all the local restaurants. Downtown isn?t walking distance but about $10 in Uber. The hostel runs off an honor staff for the most part. The directions to getting to your room is extremely detailed. The neighborhood was safe. I had a lot of things in my car due to a roadtrip and never did I feel my things were in danger.
Disliked: I told the property I would be clubbing during my stay. They placed me in a room in the attic. The roof is so small and I am 5?10?. It was extremely tedious and frustrating going in and out of my room. No rooms should be in the attic. The quality of the sheets and blankets were horrible! I have stayed in cheaper hostels with much better linen. The toilet paper was the cheapest as well. This place is doing too much Penny-pinching that the quality of everything is extremely low. Overall it looked just like the pictures. The weather was too cold for the hot tub. There is only 4 very tight parking spaces on the grass in the backyard so you must park on the crowded one way.

Will visit again for sure!

Liked: Clean clean clean!... Bathroom was recently updated. Bed was a memory foam bed... Slept like a rock!... The surrounding area is rife with great food choices and minutes away from all the happenings in Cbus... Will absolutely go back
Disliked: Parking is a bit tight but the place itself is outstanding.
