Our Story

Music City Hostel opened in 2005 as a true backpackers hostel in Midtown Nashville. Through word of mouth, the reputation for this watering hole for global backpackers spread. In 2012, we expanded our hostel operation to the downtown entertainment district by opening the Nashville Downtown Hostel.


Each year we welcome hundreds of musicians and songwriters who come to Music City to experience the vibrant art and music scene that has made Nashville home to some of the most prolific artists in the world. Guests often gather in our courtyard HOstel Hangfor impromptu jam sessions around our fire pit.

Our cozy hostel has dorm and private rooms for 30 guests as well as three 2-bedroom vacation rentals with kitchens that can be rented for guests or small groups wanting a hostel atmosphere with more amenities. With 24/7 access, Music City Hostel has several common areas, kitchen, community garden, BBQ grill, bike storage, and laundry facility.

Our goal is to welcome guests into our hostel and foster an environment that helps travelers meet one another and create memories and connections that continue far past our doors, which is what eventually inspired our motto: Come as Guests, Leave as Friends.
