Check out the Country Music Hall of Fame, Johnny Cash Museum, or George Jones Museum to get to know the music legends that started it all.

This was myself first time staying at this hostel and I was so impressed. We had a minor issue with noise our first night there (they had construction going on) and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Can't wait to come visit again!

Coffee stale and cold in AM. Comfortable beds, well functioning shower and great location. Staff helpful with directions to catch city bus.

Need personal lockers with each bunk bed. Common room could use some differentiation: partitioned zones, soundproofing.
