Lower level was a bit brisk. And i chose to use the bathroom on the main floor instead of lower level. But everything was great. Cant beat the price. This will be my go to place from now on when i visit Indy. Will probably try to get a room upstairs if possible though.

Property itself was clean and has good amenities available. However, staff was never, not so easy to find your way into the house, not to mention, your room. Had to play a guessing game.

First, I had an overall pleasant stay here. The bed was comfortable, everything was clean, and the few other guests there at the time were fun to talk to. Second, I was able to use buses to get around to a certain extent, which was a big moneysaver as opposed to car rental or Uber. You can get here from the airport in an hour and twenty minutes with one change at the Indy central terminal, so long as you don't mind the rather torn-down look of the other bus patrons. It cost $1.75 for each bus separately. Third, a few things at this hostel surprised me. I followed self check-in instructions that were emailed to me as best as I could, but I didn't need the keypad combination because the door was unlocked. Further, there was no lock at all on the room of the female-only dorm. And there was no hand soap in the upstairs two bathrooms. One of the other girls bought some for one of them. Meanwhile, nobody had left a towel for me, and nobody showed up even to require me to finish paying until the morning the next day. I didn't know he was an employee because he never identified himself as such and was just sitting on the couch using his phone. I finally figured it out and asked him if he wanted to charge my money and if they had any towels. The owners showed up later to do some work on the property, and I mentioned the lack of hand soap. They went out on other errands and came back, but by the time I left the next day there was still no hand soap.

Stayed here a few years ago and they are in the process of expanding and upgrading their rooms, really comfy beds and friendly staff. This is a hostel, not a hotel so communal bathrooms with most rooms. Visiting family nearby so mostly using this as a bedroom which worked great for us.

This is a clean, cheerful, no-fuss place to stay in a fun neighborhood close to Butler and Broad Ripple. I had no trouble checking in - staffers called me to reconfirmed my arrival time, and then helped me settle in. My evening's sleep went well (although my roommate and I might have kept up others because we enjoyed talking!), and the kitchen had plenty of breakfast supplies. I would definitely stay again.
