Why Mandy Terry chose Meridian-Kessler
The Indy Hostel is the perfect environment to host a group stay, where our home becomes yours. With plenty of great common areas, the Indy Hostel provides a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere to gather with friends and family. Reviews- For two straight years my family has reserved the Indy Hostel to host our Christmas get together. We have five children, their spouses, five grandchildren and three dogs. We come together and cook, relax, play games and love that we can spread out and have so much room for everyone. The staff is so welcoming and the hostel's central location in the city works well for our family. Our grandchildren love the green and red Christmas houses and so do we! Thank you for working with our church youth group this weekend. The facilities were clean, staff was very kind and the kids really enjoyed the yard and stage. It was wonderful to have all of the space (inside and outside) allowing active kids to be active and quieter kids the opportunity to talk, listen to music or play games. I will recommend this to anyone I know visiting the Indianapolis area. We are from Wauseon, Ohio (west of Toledo). I love Indy Hostel. We had a dozen or so friends and family in town for our wedding last October. Paul and the crew garnered rave reviews from all of our guests. We live in Broad Ripple and we wanted folks to be able to stay near us. It turns out there is a dead zone where Indy Hostel is the only place to stay between downtown and castleton. Nice staff. Comfy furnishings and a great location in South Broad Ripple near Upland Brewpub, The Sinking Ship and plenty of tasty restaurants. Highly recommended.
