Location was great, rode bike into town which was very straightforward and not far. Employees were great-manager (rob) was very helpful. Close to party store with wonderful beer selection. Liked that i was able to create coffee in the morning and it was a whole pot of good coffee. Really impressed, first time using a hostel. Will only stay there when in Columbus!

It&'s a cute property with everything an ideal hostel should have, including bikes to borrow and homemade breads at the free of charge breakfast. I also appreciated how secure and secure it was.

Staying in Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel felt almost like staying home. The facility offered by fare more than I would have ever needed. Bed sheets and towels were completely clean. The staff was so extremely helpful and hospitable, that this alone would be reason enough to come back for another stay. On top of that, bicycles exactly where accessible all day round (free) - quite convenient to get around for sightseeing or shopping.

Extremely helpful && warm and friendly staff. Being here was, truly, like being among friends. My son && I were assisted in many ways in our early insertion into Columbus, receiving countless pointers && references. The place is maintained in a very satisfying state of cleanliness; very pro-active, and solution-geared management. leaving here is, quite frankly, a tearing experience!

  Customer Review 

The rooms are nice and clean. Shower works pretty well. I liked the self-served breakfast too, but they could offer you a lot more options.

Off the typical backpacking path, the Wayfaring Buck offers affordable hostel accomodation for those that discover themselves in Columbus Ohio. First and foremost, Columbus as a city is particularly spread out - as well as the location of this hostel is a TWO hour walk to central Columbus. That said, its bus/cyclable in just 30 minutes. It is, however, extremely close to Ohio State University and extremely close to exactly where students tend to live. The vicinity itself is fairly run down, however, I walked about at night quite safely and without incident. The hostel is located extremely close to a Aldi market place (five minute walk) as such, your shopping is likely to be cheap! In terms of facilities, there is a oven, hob, fridge, freezer, computers and bikes which are offered no cost to use. Locks are provided on doors with a combination code, as a result, I at least felt that my belongings were secure. Whilst I was there, I felt that in general the hostel was given a much worse review online than it deserved. I personally stayed there for four nights and didn&'t really feel uncomfortable. The airconditioning here is amazing! Owner and manager were friendly and welcoming.
