You can't go wrong with this place. An aura of friendliness and order reigns at Tmax and Topo's. David and Tmax are super friendly hosts and avid hikers. They're frequently dispensing helpful information about the mountains to guests. The place is spic and span and very well organized. Obviously, a lot of thoughtful effort has gone into adding all sorts... More

Myself and two friends stayed in the pop up trailer on the grounds, which had plenty of room for all of us and our stuff. We had easy access to the clean bathrooms and showers across the lawn, and the kitchen is large and well equipped. Everything is clean, which is always my biggest concern. As it was getting into...

A friend and I stayed here recently and really enjoyed ourselves. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful, and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was clean, and the room we were in (The Dixes) also had a small mini-fridge, microwave and coffee machine. The common area downstairs seemed very welcoming (although we were exhausted after our hike and... More

We spent two great nights at TMax-n-Topo's. The place is charming, comfortable and immaculate. Clean is very important to me, and this place was spotless. We spent most of our time on the trails in the region, but when we came home to Tmax-n-Topos, everything was perfect. This is one of those great finds that I'm almost a bit afraid... More

I really like this place. I'm a 30-something hiker looking for somewhere cheap and laid back to rest my head after a long day hiking. This place is perfect. The owners are friendly and helpful, the place is rustic but well-equipped, and the location is prime. I ca't recall staying anywhere as pleasant as this at this rice point.

Great hostel. Tmax and Topo definitely have things well in order and provide great hospitality. There is a large common area, a large common kitchen, food for sale, pool, tennis court, firepit, small BBQ grill, etc. Did not see the bunk rooms but stayed in the Roaring Brook 'motel' room and it was excellent. Definitely the best value in town... More

The place is really cosy and pleasant, my bed was very comfortable. David's uncomplicated ways, interesting instructions on hiking and mountaineering, and warm welcome made my stay there perfect. The kitchen is big and well-equipped. It is easy to get in touch with fellow travelers. Simply great!

The difference between staying at a hostel vs a hotel is that you meet other people with similar interests. We've stayed here a number of times when hiking the high peaks. At T-Max-n-Topo's the owners are also present to give you guidance. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, they have a great kitchen and they keep making improvements.... More

A friend and I stayed here for a night this week while attending a USA Bobsled recruiting camp. I was pleasantly surprised by both the cleanliness and coziness of this hostel. The kitchen is huge and features a commercial gas range as well as everything you could possibly need to cook your own meals. The host was extremely personable and... More
