Hostel Detroit truly began in November 2010, when founder Emily Doerr realized there was a need for a space where curious travelers could come stay, explore, and learn about Detroit. As an avid traveler and Couchsurfer, Emily often hosted guests in her Corktown neighborhood condominium – sometimes as many as 10/week. The influx of visitors gave her an idea:
“Let’s open a hostel in Detroit!”
Emily leased a building, reached out to everyone she knew, and started putting it all together. After countless volunteer hours spent building, painting, planting, and cleaning, it was was ready. Hostel Detroit hosted its first guests on April 17th, 2011.
