My best friend and I worked in Glacier Nat'l Park in college and go back whenever we can. We'd visited Polebridge several times, but never spent the night. Square Peg was perfect; comfortable and homey. You should know, though, that Polebridge is totally off the grid, which means using an outhouse (some properties have septic, but not this one), propane... More

The owner of the place loved visiting the hostel for many years that much that he bought it about 12 years ago. He creates a special welcoming place for all visitors. Great kitchen. I highly recommend staying in tipis, very unique experience, you can even make a fire in them. There are cabins and dorm rooms as well. If you... More

This was our last stop on our road trip around America. To be perfectly honest it just couldn't have ended any better, we spent 4 fantastic nights in the Green Zucchini. When reading reviews on the Zucchini I was a little worried about the size of the bed but I am 6ft3 and had no problems with comfort even though... More

Been to Polebridge many times but first stay at the hostel. First, bikers beware. The dirt road is long, and the dust is choking and constant. No alternatives, this road goes right to the Candian border and stops. The 'town' of Polebridge consists of a bakery/barebones store, a restaurant open for dinner, and the hostel, which is wonderful. Its in... More

Oliver was so accommodating & very polite! Really off the grid which is part of the whole experience! There was a grill/bar that has THE BEST elk burger & huckleberry cocktails! Will be going back again! Thanks again Oliver! Sincerely Bama girls!

Location! Location! Location! A different type of hostel Hidden next to Glacier National Park. First was access to the park and wild lands of Montana as close to wilderness anywhere in the lower 48 states. We chose the cabin.The proprietor, Oliver, and other travelers were quite helpful in sharing the secerts of the area. Great hiking in the park and... More

We ended up at the North Fork Hostel randomly at night in the off season when looking for a place to stay before a backpacking trip in Glacier. Oliver was kind enough to offer us a place to stay despite us showing up without a reservation. We stayed in the Goat Chalet which was a quant little rustic cabin type... More

We just spent a night up at the North Fork Hostel and decided to splurge and get the Tepee because that just sounded so charming. For fifty bucks, we could have eaten at the North Fork Saloon and slept out under the stars where there may have been fewer mosquitos! It seemed as if they swarmed us all night and... More

I LOVE the North Fork Hostel. I recommend the Green Zucchini, which is super cheap and really fun to stay in. I actually went there for a week one year, and I had to come back the next year because it was so amazing-- which isn't easy because I was coming from the east coast. This is my favorite hostel...

My wife and I love the Hostel and Oliver. Yes, it's rustic, and maybe not for everyone. But we've been coming back for years and will continue doing so. The Square Peg Ranch, also run by Oliver, is great too!
