5 stars....great place, great people, clean, professional! Always look forward to coming back. Highly recommended! They have the best breakfast ever helping us out on our section hikes, and shuttled us to our start point, and picked us up from our stop point. Josh is an animal in that truck! Nothing can stop him from getting his customers out there,... More

I did a little research about using them for shuttles before our trip but found out they only shuttle if you are staying with them. I was a little bummed because I really wanted to stay and have them shuttle us but it was just not to be for our itinerary......or so I thought. We ended up having to bail... More

Breakfast was served every... More

Great experience, clean neat rooms, pleasant surroundings, genuinely helpful host. great value but worth a stay at three times the price. left early and did not get to partake of the free breakfast but I am sure it in keeping with the rest of my stay would have been great. when I was leaving early I backed into a ditch....

I stayed in one of the container cabins for a night and was absolutely blown away! Hiker Hostel was a natural paradise tucked away on the side of a mountain. The grounds include a large cabin with shared and private rooms, full kitchen, laundry facilities, and large living area. Outside you will find a private cabin and two shipping containers... More

Our group from the Atlanta Outdoor Club is now ready for our 2nd annual stay at the wonderful Hiker Hostel. They provide great accommodations, tasty and healthy breakfasts, a wonderful atmosphere, and incredible shuttle services. Josh, Leigh (along with Derek and Shannon) will help make your trip on the AT that much nicer!

Great hospitality - owners are fabulous! Great food! Exceptional lodging experience for hikers! Like a B&B for hikers! The owners put so much into the hostel and give hostel a whole new meaning! They are very knowledgeable of hiking and the area. The hostel has books and some things that you can purchase. Breakfast was exceptional. Very clean, homey environment.... More

This was my first stop for a zero on my section hike of the Appalachian trail ! I was more than impressed to say the least! They picked us up at woody gap and showed us around the area that we would be staying! Great community room(s) and even had a kitchen you could cook in for yourself or your... More

The Hiker Hostel owners are not only gracious as hosts but genuinely pleasant. When I got there with my wife I was greeted by the owner Joshua. He asked if he could help me. I gave him my name and asked where to register. It rather shocked me as I am use to whipping out the ole CC and ID... More
