    The vibe here was perfect for those on a hiking/skiing trip. Comfy bunks, warm showers, and a full kitchen were the highlights.

    A great find. This is a lovely property with an efficient and comfortable system to accommodate travelers seeking enjoyment in the gorgeous GMNF. Owners focus on cleanliness and logistics for a steady turnover of people staying here. I never had a wait for shower or bathroom. The kitchen was inviting, functional, and user-friendly. The atmosphere was social and upbeat. I enjoyed memorable conversations with several individuals and will return.

    One of my favorite places to stay! The atmosphere is great, the people are nice and welcoming. Everything feels homey, the living spaces are great, everything is clean and fully stocked. There's free pancakes in the morning, a hammock outside and bonfires at night. What's not to love?

    A genuine backpacker hostel - quite a rarity in the U.S. Great location, they rent bicycles too. Good kitchen with lots of equipment. Lockers in the hallway rather than inside the dorm are great. Keeps the plastic bag rattling outside! Comfortable bed. Staff are really helpful. Highly recommended.

    friendly staff and a nice spot, plus free pancake mix to make your own breakfast pancakes! but too many people for the size, kitchen and bathrooms perennially cramped/busy. and it's very much a hikers' hostel with not much thought given to anyone who isn't hiking
