"I really enjoyed staying in Music City Hostel - it is very safe, friendly, and clean! I came to Nashville for a Welcome Weekend for students admitted to Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management MS in Finance program and was able to walk to Vanderbilt campus in 10 minutes. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Nashville to stay in this hostel - you will enjoy meeting students from all over the world, the hostel staff will be very attentive to you, you will be able to cook in the kitchen, and you will be very close to downtown Nashville."

"I spent over a year at Music City Hostel Condo Apartment during initial periods of my PhD study at Vanderbilt. While I had been working in those busiest days in my study, Ron, Tracee, hostel staff and my roommates helped me a lot. We often went to the grocery store together and sometimes share dinner. It saved my time and became good refreshment for me. Also, the apartment of Music City Hostel is close to Vanderbilt. Rental bike at hostel is convenient to go to the school. I would recommend Music City Hostel especially for international students at Vanderbilt for those who need to work hard at school in the first several semesters and meanwhile have to set up the life in the US.

"の生物・医学系PhDプログラムに入学し、最初の数ヶ月間をこちらで過ごしました。不慣れなナッシュビルという土地で、さらに予想以上にハードだった一 年目のコースワークをなんとか乗り切ったのもマネージャーのRonをはじめとするスタッフの助けのおかげだと思っています。Ronは日本語もほんの少し話 すことができ、日本人の生活スタイルにも理解の深い人です。ここでは二つのベッドルームのあるアパートの一室をもう一人のルームメイトとシェアするという 形になります。性格などを考慮してRonが割り振りますが、楽しいシェア生活を送ることができました。ルームメイトとは離れた今でもいい友人です。また、 スタッフが時おり、買出しに車を出してくれたり、必要なものを貸してくれたりといったサポートには助けられました。五年は続く長丁場のPhD studyですが、ここに住んでいる間にじっくりとナッシュビルでの生活の基盤を築くことができました。より安いところなどを探せばほかにも見つかるとは 思いますが、ここまで総合的なサポートが行き届いているところはあまりないと思います"

"Hi everybody! I really recommend Music City Hostel if you want to come to Nashville! In the hostel there is room for who wants to stay here some days and there are also some apartments for who wants to stay longer. The apartments are well furnished (with also dishwasher, washer and dryer) and bills, cable TV and Internet fees are included in the rent. Moreover, in the condominium you can meet a lot of other students. Ron and Tracee, the hostel hosts, are very kind, hospitable and always willing to help us. From the hostel it’s possible to easily go downtown and to Vanderbilt University; moreover, it’s possible to rent a bike and often Ron and Tracee give us a ride to the supermarket. If I will come again to Nashville after these 4 months, I will definitely come back to Music City Hostel!"

"Ciao a tutti! Vi consiglio davvero il Music City Hostel se avete intenzione di venire a Nashville! L’ostello non solo ha posto per chi si vuole fermare qui qualche giorno, ma offre anche degli appartamenti per chi vuole fermarsi per un periodo più lungo. Gli appartamenti sono ben accessoriati (ci sono anche lavastoviglie, lavatrice e asciugatrice) e le bollette, il canone della televisione e il collegamento internet sono compresi nell’affitto. Nel condominio ci sono inoltre molti altri studenti, internazionali e non. Ron e Tracee, gli amministratori dell’ostello, sono molto gentili, ospitali e sempre pronti ad aiutarci. Dall’ostello si possono raggiungere facilmente sia il centro sia la Vanderbilt University; vi è poi la possibilità di noleggiare biciclette e spesso Ron e Tracee ci portano in macchina al supermercato. Se verrò di nuovo a Nashville dopo questi 4 mesi, tornerò sicuramente al Music City Hostel!"

"Hey guys! Music City Hostel is a great place to stay for a few days or a longer time. The apartments are well furnished, comfortable and modern. The hosts are really nice, like to help you when you need it (for example, give a ride to go shopping!) and organize some outing (restaurants, etc.) to build a strong community feeling among the residents. I really enjoy my stay here and advise you to come to Music City Hostel when you are in Nashville!"

"Salut! Music City Hostel est une très bonne adresse pour séjourner quelques jours ou plus à Nashville. Les appartements sont meublés, confortables et modernes. Les gérants sont très sympa et sont prêts à aider dès qu’ils le peuvent (par ex, ils proposent régulièrement de vous conduire jusqu’au supermarché le plus proche, ce qui est cool si vous n’avez pas de voiture !). Ils organisent aussi des sorties au restaurant, ce qui permet de créer une bonne ambiance entre tous les résidents de Music City Hostel. Voilà pourquoi j’apprécie vraiment mon séjour à Music City Hostel et vous conseille d’y résider quand vous êtes de passage sur Nashville."

They are also equipped with everything you need for a long stay. I have every reason to recommend choosing Music City Hostel and Apartments if you are looking for a place to stay in Nashville."

De er ogso utstyrt med det du måtte trenge av utstyr for et lengre opphold. Dersom du leter etter et sted å bo i Nashville vil Music City Hostel and Apartments absolutt være et sted jeg anbefaler."

"I stayed at an apartment at Music City Hostel for my exchange semester at Owen in fall 2007. The apartment, located around 100 ft from the hostel, was clean and very convenient. You find everything you need: Washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, stove, fridge, TV, internet and all the furniture you need. You just have to bring your own clothes ;). I also rented a bike at the hostel, which was very convenient (but be careful as American drivers are not used to bikers!). All in all I am very satisfied with my decision to stay at Music City Hostel and Apartments!"

"Music City Hostel and Apartments is a  perfect place to commute to Vanderbilt University.  Here is really good price, safety and convenient.  In addition all staffs, Ron, Tracee, Klaus and Hope are very kind and they welcome all guests as if we were real family.  In my 3 months stay, I could enjoy USA life thanks to them.  If there is chance I can come back to Nashville, I will absolutely select this hostel…..I hope. See you (^0^)"

"Hi all ! The time I spent at Music City Hostel In Nashville was great because the apartment were very comfortable with any stuff you need for a long stay (washer, dryer, cable TV and internet). The most important thing I want to highlight is the helpfulness of all the staff but especially Ron and Tracee, the hostel landlords. They helped me before my arrival and during my four months stay. The hostel is close to the Vanderbilt University and to Downtown so it's the right place for those of you who won't have a car in Nashville. I hope to see you in Music City Hostel because I will certainly come back in the future."

"I enjoyed being resident at Music City Hostel very much. I spent an exchange semester at Vanderbilt University in fall 2007 and the Music City Hostel was on top of the list of the housing information provided by the Owen School. I shared an apartment with my fellow student Marcel. Not only did the apartment provide everything you need in all day life - furniture, Internet, cable TV, washing machine and dryer etc. - but the hostel has also a nice and warm atmosphere where you can meet interesting people from all over the world. Its owners, Ron and Tracee, were always willing to help and were never tired to answer all questions in a friendly way. As you can rent a bike easily at the hostel, I highly recommend getting one to get to Vanderbilt or to one of the grocery stores. The next time I'm in Nashville, I'll definitively stop at the Music City Hostel!"

"Vielen Dank Ron fuer diese unvergessliche Zeit! Eigentlich wollte ich nur fuer einen Monat bleiben und ups - da war es gleich ein halbes Jahr. Ich habe zuvor nicht geglaubt, dass ein Hostel so viel Spass machen kann. Sollte ich in Zukunft in der Nashville Gegend sein, werde ich an deine Tuer klopfen... Du bist der beste Vermieter den ich je hatte!"

"Thank you very much for this amazing time in your hostel. Originally, I planned to stay only for a month, but the time went by so fast and I enjoyed my stay so much that I finally stayed for a half year. I can not believe have much fun I had! You are the best landlord I have ever had. If I will be in the area in the future, I will swing by - that's for sure!"

"Our time at MusicCityHostel in Nashville has been great! It's a fun place and it's pretty close to everything. It's an excellent way to make new friends since you get to meet people from all over the world. It's cheap and Ron is a good and fun landlord. We really enjoyed our time here!"

"Jag hade en jättebra tid på Music City Hostel i Nashville. Jag lärde känna folk från hela världen och Ron, hyresvärden var hjälpsam och trevlig. Dessutom så är det relativt nära till själva innerstaden i Nashville samt till Music Row vilket är ett stort plus om man inte har bil. Kan verkligen rekommendera Music City Hostel!"

"I had a great time, staying at Music City Hostel in Nashville and I met a lot of nice people, including Ron, the manager of the place. He is very helpful and nice. Also, it's pretty close to Nashville downtown which is a major plus if you travel without a car. I can truly recommend Music City Hostel!"

"After having to leave Tulane for the semester because of Hurricane Katrina, and coming to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt, the Music City Hostel was exactly what I was looking for. Everything needed for for my three month stay was provided, and Ron was an excellent host. The hostel is close to everywhere I needed to be"

"I was a visiting student to the Vanderbilt Medical Center. This hostel provided me a very nice room for a wonderful price. The hostel host, Ron was very nice and tried to help me out in every respect. I was so moved by his hospitality.  I had nice time meeting many travelers from various countries here. I did not feel lonely. I highly recommend this hostel. If I have a chance to go back to Nashville, I definitely want to stay here again."

"Living at the Music City Hostel condo is very different from the traditional apartment experience.  What sets it apart is the personalized attention from the manager, Ron.  Since day one I felt I was still at home or at close relative's home.  I will always remember one night last year when it was really cold.  Ron knocked on our door and brought us extra comforters to make sure we stayed warm.  It feels like there is always someone there that you can count on!  If there is anything broken or if there is any type of problem, Ron will make sure it is solved right away.  The condos are clean (in one year I never saw any pests), have all the furniture and utensils you need and are very nicely decorated.  It's a 15-20 min walk to the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University (and other schools within Vanderbilt).  Ron will also organize barbecues or lunches at restaurants so that we can socialize with other students and friends living at the condos. There is a sense of community but you can always have your privacy!  The Music City Hostel is behind the condos and you can always go back there and socialize with young travelers from all over the world who are making a stop in Nashville.  ¡Vale la pena vivir en Music City Hostel!"

"It is the right choice to stay in Music City Hostel. May not be the cheapest but very convenient. I call it convenient as "just live as you arrive", no need buy everything but bring a pair of chopsticks, all furniture, Kitchenware, washing machine ready in the house. The manager is very nice and very cooperative. Especially for short-stay visitors like months or less than one year, it is worth it. Another good thing is, for its convenience Music City Hostel is attracting more attentions from Owen Business Management School of Vanderbilt, more and more international students choose to stay here, which would bring another advantage for your stay." "选择这个旅店,确切地说是公寓,应该还是选择对啦。相对附近其它的公寓来讲,也许不是最便宜的,但确是最方便,最省心的。随来随住,不用添置任何东西, 厨具家具都比较齐全,带双筷子就好了。公寓经理是韩国人,为人热忱,善于体谅住客难处,有什么需要找到他都能得到妥善安排。特别是短期居留的话,比如几个 月或不到一年,更是超值。还有一点是,因为经理的努力推广和学生的介绍,这里吸引了范德堡大学欧文经济学院的注意,越来越多的MBA国际学生选择住在这 里,更增添了一份价值。"

"I was a visiting physician at Vanderbilt University.  Music City Hostel Condo was a great place to stay.  The accommodation was really clean, comfortable and affordable.  Music City Hostel gave me the perfect combination of a quiet apartment life and "Hostel" social life.  I was living in my own apartment with a private bathroom, kitchen, free WIFI, with laundry and dryer.  For fun I just had to cross the street to the Hostel.  I met a lot of great people during my stay at the Hostel.  This place is just great for solo travelers.  Something is going on all the time. BBQ, Jam Sessions or just sitting together and having a nice chat.  Ron is a great hostel host. I can recommend this place without any hesitation. Traveling to Nashville? --> Stay at Music City Hostel !!!"

"Ich habe ein ein monatiges Praktikum an der Vanderbilt University in Nashville als Gastarzt in der Neurochirurgie absolviert. Während meines Aufenthaltes in Nashville habe ich im Music City Hostel gewohnt. Das Hostel hat sich als die perfekte Unterkunft herausgestellt. Ich habe dort in einem großen sauberen Apartment gewohnt, hatte mein eigenes Schlaf- und Badezimmer. Sowie eine große saubere Küche mit Waschmaschine und Trockner. WIFI und ein großer Fernseher im Wohnzimmer waren natürlich auch dabei. Wenn es mir in meinem Apartment zu langweilig wurde musste ich einfach nur über die Straße gehen und war mitten im Hostel Leben. Ich habe in meiner Zeit dort sehr viele interessante Menschen kennen gelernt: Musiker, Künstler andere Ärzte, es ist einen bunte Mischung der verschiedensten Individuen die den Charme dieses Hostels ausmachen. Ron der Besitzer des Hostels ist großartig und zusammen mit seiner Frau und google die gute Seele des Hostels. Während meines Aufenthaltes in den USA habe ich mehrere Reisen unternommen und das Music City Hostel ist zu so etwas wie einer zweiten Heimat für mich geworden. Jedes mal wenn ich wieder für ein paar Tage halt dort gemacht habe war es als ob ein guter Freund zu Besuch kommt alle dort waren sehr herzlich und hilsbereit, alles in allem kann ich es jedem der nach Nashville reist nur empfehlen hier abzusteigen ganz egal ob für eine Nacht oder für einen Monat. In Nashville ist Music City Hostel definitiv der Place to be!!! :-))))"

"The Music City Hostel was a great place for my family. We have good memories at this place. Ron and Tracee are really nice and generous. They are friendly with my children and made us feel like we were at home. The Music City Hostel and Apartments is situated in the heart of Nashville near many interesting places: the Centennial Park, the Frist museum, the Riverfront Park, The Vanderbilt University. The apartment was nicely furnished and the kitchen was fully equipped. The building was always peaceful and clean. From my experience, if you want to live in Nashville, the Music City Hostel and Apartments is a good option."
