It was my first time staying at a shared hostel, and it was a great experience. It was very homey, comfortable, and clean.

Lovely and unique hostel experience! The loft is beautiful and comfy, and Brittain and Erica were great at communication and made the check-in/check-out process seamless. Hanging out with Walter was another plus. :) Thanks for a great stay in Kansas City!

Anybody who has love for arts, traveling and life will absolutely enjoy this place! Brittain is not only hospital, but also has amazing experiences to share. The hostel has an artistic old-factory style and all the amenities are great. Also Brittain was super helpful in introducing where to visit and eat in the city. I was especially lucky and got to know some of Brittain's family and those people are amazing. They really contribute to charities and help people in need. So if you are willing to give a hand to the poor, definitely come to this place! The hostel is located near downtown and is within walking distance to a lot of sites and good restaurants, and there are buses around, so it's a pretty perfect location. Last but not least, the cat is s(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) adorable. He loves everybody and you will definitely fall in love with him!

Hi y’all! Great to meet you!

I’m Brittain and I’m born and raised right here in the great city of Kansas City, MISSOURI! Go Royals!

Erica is my friend and chances are, she'll be your host. Meet her here:

Fun fact: Did you know there is a KC, KS and a KC, MO? And, more than “cowtown” and “fly over country” we are known here as the “Paris of the Plains”, “City of Fountains” and “BBQ Capital of the World” just to name a few. So, we’re not all corn fields around here. We’ve actually got some pretty cool stuff goin’ on!

More about me.
I absolutely love travel!! I’ve been to 40 states and 20+ countries on 5 continents and recently completed a 6 week, 4 country, 4 continent tour that was featured as “Brittain’s World” on the Dave Ramsey Show. Search “Brittain’s World” on YouTube to see. :)

"You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what you're doing is work or play." -W.B.

This is a motto I strive to live by and one reason why I’m working hard to open KC’s first hostel. Think of it as “a social hotel” where you meet awesome folks from around the world and get to explore a great city with newfound friends while staying in a magnificent space at a price that affords you the opportunity to spend your hard earned money on other things, like food and entertainment instead of an overpriced bed with no amenities. Doesn’t that sound marvelous?

I have a WHY; my purpose in life. That purpose is to inspire and give hope to the people of Jamaica, Caribbean and other developing countries.

In 1999, I experienced my first mission trip to the third world and it forever changed my purpose and focus in life. I have continued these missions almost every year, each time building upon the foundation that would eventually lead to “my WHY”. Hostel KC is part of that “why” with its purposeful mission to give back to the people of the Caribbean. Thus, it is my goal to cultivate a ‘for purpose’ community of awesome travelers and to do so by connecting the ‘do gooders’ of the world by raising cultural awareness through travel.

I’m a mega foodie and can’t stand chains!! Organic and farm-to-tables rock my world! I love me a nice organic burger, but don’t worry - if you’re a vegan, I’m all for that too! I’ll get you to the right spots and may even join you for the Jack BBQ Sandwich! :)

Support local! If you’re visiting KC, I’ll be sure you go home with some great gifts. If I’m traveling, I return the favor and BUY LOCAL!

I’m my own kind of nerd. Not really sure what this means...maybe it’s the awesome books stacked up around my home or the fact that I still watch “Saved by the Bell” at breakfast. #NoShame

Urban Cowgirl kind of describes my sense of being. I love the city life, but yearn for those quiet visits to the countryside. And life would never be complete without my horses.

So, if you’re coming to stay at itty bitty, I welcome you and look forward to meeting you and chatting about whatever the moment brings.

If you’re hosting me, thank you for opening your doors and providing me a place to stay and explore your city.

Cheers and happy traveling!
