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.

It was a nice place...

Liked: Cheap for a 3 day stay in Columbus, Robbie is a very nice guy and made me feel comfortable at every conversation we had. It is somehow organized for a place that hosts people from all over the world.
Disliked: It is very cold inside and we are not allowed to touch the heaters, as a visitor from South America I felt sick all the time I spent there. I also felt that that carpet wasn't cleaned in a while.

Happy hosteling

Liked: It was clean, comfortable, staff and other guests were friendly. It met our needs at a great price. Walking distance to campus.
Disliked: Temperature in the room fluctuated from too cold to too hot. But staff provided an extra blanket so we were able to adjust.

Excellent house keeping

Liked: The manager was really down to earth person to address any issues you had. Eventhough I didn't have any issues. I would definitely recommend this place for short or long term stay for solo travelers
Disliked: Robie was very nice person, I had warm welcome. He was always ready to act on queries I had and made my stay very comfortable.

I love this place

Liked: The overall place was awesome. The owner Robbie was amazing. He was an awesome host and even turnt on the Jacuzzi for me. The best part. The room was nice, the people were nice and i enjoyed the simple self served breakfast. What i appreciated most is that when i checked out, Robbie allowed me to sit in the lobby a few hours longer while i waited til my ride came to take me to my show while im touring the U.S. I will be back for sure. If you want to check out my music follow me on Instagram @busman.4 Daryl Busman 4.0
Disliked: I loved everything. No complaints at all.
