You are going to LOVE staying at The Memphis Record House Hostel because it the BEST VALUE in Memphis! We are great for those on a budget.
The Hostel is like a self-serve hotel. We take a hands-off approach to hosting so you and your group can feel like the place is really yours.
All beds are queen sized, except for the Dorm Room bunk beds (x4) which are twin, and we have key code entry for your convenience. We also have the fastest internet in town!

The R&R Houses are in the business of saving. We save old houses, we save old furniture, and we save our guest money. (yes, the mattresses are new) There’s too much stuff in the world. Recycling is nice, but reducing and reusing are the true pillars of a sustainable society, as it requires a change of mindset. By staying at one of our houses, you are standing up the ‘more is better’ ideology we’ve all been sold. R&R Houses are comfortable, but modest. Mostly clean, but mostly minimal. They are largely self-serve and run remotely, which helps us aggregate our resources. Any art or decor at an R&R House has likely been salvaged from some old thrift shop; or bargained over at some clandestine estate sale. All these items, like the houses themselves, have a history and place in time. They have a unique story only they know. A society that would toss them away because they’ve lost fashion, is hardly a society at all. Does a house not still give shelter? Does a lamp not still give light? And do we not now live in a world that desperately needs light?! We also have free fruit, oatmeal, coffee and tea. How many trees must be uprooted to build another Hotel? Airbnb started started the housing and travel revolution, we are honored to play our role as a low cost lodging option.
Just as we humans are all unique, each R&R House is too. Our houses consider themselves yogis, and are always in a state of self-improvement. We appreciate your patience. We appreciate how we can get better, so please share your thoughts. All are welcome, and prices that are welcoming. No one is a stranger. Just as no houses are ugly. We would be honored if you call R&R your home, if only for a night.
Save your money for losing yourself in Memphis by staying at our modest home for travelers. We have everything you'll need to rest easy without sacrificing all that hard-earned dough.
Our goal at R&R House is to provide the budget conscious with a hot shower, a comfortable bed, all while trying to reduce our eco-footprint. After all, our Rs stand for Reduce and Reuse.
We know the world is home to us all, but while you're in town, we would love to make R&R House the next line on your address.
We have carved out an individual space from our hostel just for you. Our house is older, wiser, and carries a little more character than most, but that only makes it cozier. We have filled the interior with salvaged furniture and decor to help dispel the old adage that "new is better" and to push for a more sustainable future for hospitality. The R&R House consists of five private rooms, a dorm room, a sun room, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and a comfortable living room.
This room is a PRIVATE room upstairs (you receive a key to lock the door). So, while you may be making new friends around the common areas, you will have your own space to retreat to.
