When you stay at a hostel, you're going for a certain kind of experience. You don't expect to be pampered with room service or to have turndown service and little mints on your pillow. People who stay in hostels do so for two reasons: 1)the price and 2)the priceless experiences. Music City Hostel offers clean, safe rooms at cross-country backpacking prices, but more importantly, acts as a sort of crossroads for tourists from dozens of countries and all walks of life. You'll find singer-songwriters from Poland trying to make it big in Country music sharing bowls of cereal with cardiovascular surgeons from Jordan doing residencies at Vanderbilt. Everyone has a story to tell and can't wait to share it with you. The rooms themselves come in three flavors: a dormitory style that has several bunk beds in one bedroom, a private room that is like having your own bedroom in an apartment you share with roommates, and an apartment where you get your own bed, bath, and kitchen. They have wireless internet, an organic garden full of greens that some of the staff use to prepare shared meals, and a beer fridge where everyone stashes their brews and retrieves them on the honor system. There's a communal kitchen where you can fix a meal, and if you're strapped for food money, the staff provides pancake mix, Nutella, and oatmeal free of charge for hungry guests. The staff and owner are super friendly and can't wait to hear your story. If getting an "authentic" Nashville experience is more important to you than things like expensive toiletries, you might consider going the hostel route next time you're in Nashville, and go home with a few new friendships instead of crappy guitar souvenirs.

The music city hostel is in a cluster of buildings that looks like an old apartment complex. Each unit has one bathroom, a living area, and bedrooms with bunk beds. There is a central kitchen for the entire hostel where you are free to cook whatever you want with your own ingredients. There are also a few things for free that have been left behind by past travelers. This is a great safe place to meet new people and relax in the courtyard. I was actually surprised at how much the hostel had to offer. There is a room with several computers for you to get in touch with people you have left behind, or to plan out the next leg of your trip. You can also find entertainment from the piano in one of the buildings or in one of the many many board games that are available for everyone's use. You may even want to just walk around and look at all the pictures passing travelers have drawn on the walls. Music City Hostel really seems like a small community of friendly people hanging out, playing guitars, and interacting with each other no matter who you are or where you've been.
