Our hostel has many unique features.

We have a very large projected screen for movies and entertainment in the common area. Additionally, we can accommodate musical performances or concerts in the back patio area as well as smaller events in the common area. We have a hot tub in the back yard and there is a foosball table in the common area.

We keep a watchful eye on local events to ensure you stay informed. We provide all guests with a comforter, duvet, sheets, pillow, pillowcase, and bath towel upon arrival. We do not allow guests to use their own bedding. The kitchen is available for guest use. We provide a free continental breakfast everyday and a large buffet breakfast on special occasions.

Important Information

Thank you for your reservation with The Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel.

All check-ins are by appointment only. Please email me if you will be arriving more than one hour outside of the time you specified for check-in. Please note that if you can reach me at my cell number below you will be able to get into the common areas of the house (lockers, kitchen, etc...) earlier in the day, however your sleeping space may not be ready until after 5:00 pm (after the other guest has checked out and the space has been cleaned). If you require access to your sleeping space before 5:00 pm, please book the previous night.

I wanted to ensure that you have my contact information. You are welcome to leave a message if you don't immediately get an answer by phone, but email is the best way to reach me.

If you will be arriving by plane or bus we have a third party individual who does our airport/bus station transfers. The charge is $20 (plus tip) cash only. His name is James and you will have to contact him (614-653-6547 or to schedule a pickup. Please mention that you are staying at the Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel as he does transfers for other companies as well. After you have arrived at the Columbus airport and collected your baggage you must call him (either from your cell phone or a pay phone). He drives a maroon colored van and you can discuss the color of your clothing or other appearance details with him when you make the call so that he can easily find you in the passenger pickup area.

If you are arriving by car please initially park on the street and ask a staff member to show you the limited parking we have available behind the house. This parking is considered first come first served and you will be towed if you park anywhere else back there but the four spaces the staff member will show you. If those spaces are full, you will have to find parking on the street.

Your balance due upon arrival may be paid by cash, Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover, or PayPal. Please try to bring exact change if you will be paying with cash because we do not always have change on hand. I will not be collecting any further deposits, however guests who do not cancel their reservation at least 48 hours before their scheduled arrival will be billed the full amount for their stay. Please let me know ASAP of any changes or cancellations to your reservation. By placing this reservation you signify that you agree to these conditions. I look forward to meeting you.

Would Definately recommend this hostel. Jeremy who works there was fabulous, very helpful and friendly and Matt was fab too. Any issues were sorted straight away and it was a nice cosy small hostel. Defo using this hostel again on my return next year.
