The location is tremendous, the hostel itself is great, and the staff is uber-friendly. I felt very welcomed and at ease during my stay. In addition, I had many interesting conversations with Steve and the other hostel guests, which always makes for a good time :)

This hostel is clean, quiet, has free fast wifi, spacious dorms, very friendly staff, and is in an awesome and safe location. The bathrooms leave a little to be desired but it looks like they're in the process of renovating. However, it is REALLY expensive, as far as hostels go. But since this is the only hostel in Minneapolis I...

We had reservations for a private room with a private bath. We arrived to check-in at 11:30 AM, but no one answered the door. After waiting for 10 minutes, someone came to the door and they checked us in. They alsotook copies of credit card and driver's license. When she took us to our room, the room was still occupied...

Well we don't have anything bad to say about the hostel itself. The owner was nice and offered to do our laundry for free! The hostel is at a good location with many cozy coffee shops nearby. The only ting one could point out, is that it needs renovation, but they were already working on that. We would recommend it.

The Minneapolis International Hostel is the cheapest place to stay in Minnneapolis. I stayed there twice, first in Nov 2013, and now in Jan 2015. I was in the 15 bed male dorm. At this time of the year it is possible that you will have the room for yourself, as a 'private room', or there will only be one...

My daughter stayed one night in a dorm in this hostel and was charged for more than 3 nights ($160). Unfortunately she did not read her credit card statement and paid it (yes, lesson learned, I hope!). She also reported that the hostel was "filthy"--and she is not someone who notices that kind of thing. There was mold throughout the...

My single room for $50 unexpectedly included a private bath which is unusual for a single room in a hostel. Its probably due to being off-season for hostel traveler-types. The place was practically empty. I only saw 3 other people. The linens are clean. Mattress was saggy but the shower had lots and lots of hot water and the towel...

I booked online for my partner and I to stay in a private room at the Minneapolis International Hostel for 3 nights. Cost was $90 per person per night so $180 a night. Other reviewers have written that 'being cheap' lessened the pain of staying here, but that was not the case for us. Upon arrival we were presented with...

I've stayed twice at this hostel, getting a private room. One time I shared the bathroom with a men's dorm - awkward. The staff is not helpful. There's supposed to be breakfast fixings - but they run out. It is the cheapest room this close to downtown Minneapolis - but you get what you pay for.

The location is good but everything else for the price (about $100 for a room with full bed and shared bath) was unimpressive. This is doubly unfortunate because with just a little more effort and not too much cost e.g decent sheets and mattress pad, touch up on paint) it could be much nicer. The whole place has a general...

“The rooms on the basement are quiet but the wi-fi is limited and have no outside view.”

“More cost effective if you stay in one of their dorm rooms.”
  • To get to the room, you walk through the rest of the basement (pictured). Clean, but unfinished.
