Arrived there late at night because of a multi-hours unexpected delay at Chicago airport to Detroit, I was locked out of the front door because my code was not valid. After a call to the hotline, I was given a temporary code and I was able to enter the hostel. You have a giant blackboard in the entrance with all information you need, especially when you are late like me. The staff is responsive via e-mail or phone. It's a pleasure!
This hostel is like a travel house in a quiet district. You can cross the bridge over the highway, go on Michigan Avenue and enjoy restaurants. I recommend the Astro Coffee, they have great pastries for breakfast. This avenue can lead you to the downtown in about 30 minutes of walk. You have a grocery store behind the Michigan Central Station.
I rented a car at the airport because I was travelling from Europe then to Florida with a few days at Detroit. I didn't use public transportation or taxis. I was parking in the street, there is plenty of free space. Be careful though, I've got a fine because I was not parked in the way of driving. This is my fault, an easy avoidable mistake but controls are real, even in this area.
I've met some wonderful people in a lovely place. I highly recommend you to give it a try if you like hostels. Fantastic experience!
