Hamtramck Hostel

Come stay in my lodging in the heart of Hamtramck, one of the most vibrant immigrant communities in the Detroit area! Hamtramck's motto is the whole world in two miles. Stay in a community filled with people from all different nationalities, ethnicities and backgrounds while also being a short drive to the center of downtown Detroit.

We have common areas where you can meet short and long term guests, watch tv/netflix, cook/eat and socialize.

Our volunteers enjoy free accommodation while contributing to cleaning, welcoming guests, hostel maintenance, art projects, marketing, gardening and more - depending on your skills.

As a metro Detroit native and avid traveler, I spent a good portion of the last decade traveling around the world, mostly staying in Youth Hostels. On October 5th, 2017, my long time dream of managing a youth hostel came true! Now I can't wait to show you my city!

Minha experiencia não foi como esperado, queria ter evoluído e aprendido algo, mostrar meu potencial, mas não ocorreu. A Recepção foi normal, mas o quarto estava totalmente sujo, me apresentou todos os ambientes, tem um fumante la que deixa todo o local com um cheiro forte cigarro com maconha, apesar de ser liberado no país, mas me incomodou muito por estar no ambiente interno do local, não vá se voce tiver alergia, a cozinha precisa organizar as coisas, especial a geladeira. o prédio e antigo e falta um cuidado, não tem pessoas la para conversar, local de rápida passagem apenas, falta gestão.

Hamtramck hostel is a homey environment with a strong sense of community. You will meet travelers from across the world, as well as long-term residents of Detroit/Hamtramck. You can get together with the community for spontaneous game nights, movie nights, shared meals, nights out in Detroit, etc. I strongly recommend this hostel if you're looking for a non-judgemental place to learn English, exchange cultures, find meaningful friendships, and a place for personal growth.
