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

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

I'm surprised to see that others enjoyed this hostel--I was treated like a second class citizen during a stay here as a camper and it was the worst treatment I've ever received. I highly recommend you go to the Brunswick Family Campground instead (http://www.brunswickmd.gov/campground.htm) which seemed lovely and was much closer to the C&O trail! I had to pay $5... More

Beware camping at this hostel. You are not welcome generally. You can pay for bathroom access, but soon after doing this the staff decided that they would only allow us to use the bathroom once, although we were not previously informed of this policy. Apparently this is their new policy because they changed their signs the next morning to say... More
