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.

We are disappointed to learn that your experience with our staff was anything short of excellent. Superb customer service is foundational to our operation and for a good guest experience. We have shared your feedback with our staff and are training our team to better serve our guests with a smile.

They really kept hostel and kitchen clean. No recycling or composting. Did no like some of the other guests checking in at 1 am or no totally checking out and hanging around. Seemed like a lot of residents or locals to be. Mysterious and strange.

Thank you for the feedback. We highly value cleanliness and strive for perfection in the condition of our rooms and shared spaces. We think this is so important for a positive guest experience, and we're glad to hear we were able to deliver on this. Unfortunately, the core of downtown Nashville does not offer recycling services for commercial businesses. The recycling services in Nashville are for residential use only. We are hopeful the city will address this in the near future so we and other businesses can implement more sustainable practices with waste.

Thank you for the feedback. We have been replacing and updating our mattresses over the past year to improve the comfort level in our rooms. Our pillows are filled with memory foam and have adjustable pressure points. However, additional pillows can be borrowed from the front desk if more are needed for additional comfort.
