There was something magical about this hostel that I can't quite put my finger on. The primary staff member (lady) was really friendly, everything was very clean, wifi was good, but also - and it appealed to me - you can basically go to this hostel without any food and leave crazily overstuffed! I stayed here for two nights, one... More

This is easily the best hostel I ever stayed in. Loretta, the owner, made us feel truly like we were in a home from home with cup cakes, a fantastic breakfast spread of pancakes, blueberries etc. The location is stunning: fabulous views over the Potomac and pure rural tranquility. This is genuine value for money.

I'm primarily a road cyclist who took advantage of the mild early Nov weather to do an overnight cycling trip from Frederick to Harper's Ferry. Cycling was fun, and I took advantage of the dry weather to include part of the C & O Canal. Great fall folliage. I hung around Harper's Ferry a couple hours seeing the film of... More

The hostel has a nice open floor plan in the common area between the kitchen, dining area, and hang out space so everyone can be doing different things but still all in the same room, which was good for a group. The hostel manager is incredibly nice and makes you feel at home. She spent an afternoon making cupcakes and... More

This is a small (33 beds plus campground) seasonal (spring, summer, autumn) hostel. Groups can rent the entire hostel during the winter as well as during the "season." Clean, good hot water, and comfortable beds. The kitchen is immaculate. The common room/living room is comfortable and inviting. A computer with free WiFi and board games are available in the common... More

This is a quiet little hostel in the woods that feels like home. It's about a mile from downtown Harpers Ferry. The C&O Canal trail and AT pass by the hostel, but you have to cross the railroad tracks to take the short way there.

Went here with ten Boy Scouts and tent camped. Went bicycle riding on the c&o. Loretta was very nice and welcoming. We cooked breakfast and dinner in their kitchen. They provided the pancake batter and add ins. Kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Nice screened pavilion for campers and volleyball net too. Would stay again.

I stayed at the HI Harpers Ferry Hostel recently with over 100 scouts and a dozen counselors. We had the whole place all to ourselves and it was a great experience for all. We set up 15 ten man tents for the kids in the yard and had a great view of the Potomack river from the hostel's location in... More

I went to Harper's Ferry for the weekend with my friend and we stayed at the HI- Harper's Ferry hostel for all three days we were there. We got a private room for a great price! The hostel was clean, and the staff was fantastic and very friendly! They treated us just like family! Loretta cooked us a wonderful meal... More

Chose to get away from DC with my girlfriend for the weekend and needed a cheap place to stay. The Harpers Ferry Hostel was a great place for our short stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. I called and was able to reserve a private room for only $40.00 which is a great price. The Hostel is clean with... More
