The Space

We are the only donation based (pay it forward/pay what you want) non-profit hostel chain in the world. We started on a simple idea: people are good. Now, we have multiple branches around the world run by real local people who try to spread that idea every day. Come stay with us and experience real community and hospitality.

When you come to a new city, you usually don't know a soul, and look to a hostel to meet new friends to share new experiences. With Not Another Hostel, you have friends (us) as soon as you walk in the door. Forget about hostels where you don't meet (let alone interact) with the owner, and come learn about the real Cincinnati with us!

Guest Access

We offer:
* Clean sheets, blankets, and pillows
* Full kitchen use
* Hot showers (there is a shared bathroom)
* Stupid fast WiFi
* Maps for biking/buses/walking
* Free on street parking
* Musical equipment available for a jamming.
* Camping in the backyard with firepit and a hammock.
* No checkout times (Just leave the room by 2 PM, but you can hang around with us after that if need be.)

Interaction with Guests

This whole system runs on donations. We are not out to make a profit off of you, but do have a suggested (completely optional) donation amount of $25. This goes towards rent, utilities, supplies, internet costs, maintenance and upkeep on the house, and other expenses. If you cannot afford or do not want to pay anything, that's okay! We are a true non-profit that does not guilt trip people into donating. Our listing does say $10 on airbnb, as that is their minimum listing amount. That amount can be refunded no questions asked. If you want to learn more about our mission, find our website by searching for Not Another Hostel.

Hope to see you soon!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great stay with Alec passing through Cincinnati. It got a little loud outside at night with the people in the neighborhood having a good time, but if you're a heavy sleeper like me it won't be a big concern. Thanks again!

  • Alex, Amir, & Adam were incredibly hosts. They were super inviting of me into the space and contributed to a super positive experience in Cincinnatti. Was also great to hang with other guests coming thru and to play music in the jam room. Thanks guys! Best of luck to you.

  • NAH (email hidden) to stay! "The triple A" are so friendly and nice.
    This experience was different from my other stays in Cincy simply because it felt more like home. NAH itself is tidy and Cozy. The neighborhood is just beautiful!

  • The hosts at Not Another Hostel: Cincinnati were perfect (only met Alec and Amir, but I'm sure the same goes for Adam). The house was very well kept and they were more than willing to help direct us in anyway within the area. We ended up grabbing food and playing games back at the house since we were only passing through for a single night. I would defiantly recommend these guys for any other Air BnB user. Would definitely stay with them again, and even host them if I had the space.

  • Had a wonderful experience at Not Another Hostel. The hosts, Alec, Amir, and Adam are extremely friendly and helpful, they are really committed to the idea of a donation based accommodation with a human face where people from all over the world can share their experiences with each other. Had a chance to go for a few drinks with Alec and had a great time! The beds are comfortable and the room has a separate entrance; the bathroom is shared but it was never a problem.

    I highly recommend staying here!
