We stopped here and spent a great night and got a shuttle to our start point and hiked our way back and greatly enjoyed the showers after 5 days in the woods... the breakfasts are great and the owner is a super nice lady... I will definitely keep this place in mind next time I come through...

As some have mentioned, this is a place where the line is blurred between B&B and hostel. But what it's categorized as doesn't really matter to me. Laurel was an awesome hostess. The remarks about the coldness are unwarranted. I tend to think that says something more about the reviewer than about Laurel. A lot of interesting people in the... More

I stayed at the Teahorse for a week in March. Since this is off-season for the Appalachian Trail, there were several nights I had the multi-bunk room to myself. The couple of other guests who stayed were pleasant and fun to talk to. I went to Shepherdstown each day to do research in Robert C. Byrd's papers. Laurel was a... More

Ultra clean and ultra surprised at my first hostel experience. Laurel was a wonderful hostess , breakfast chef, and new friend. Best value I could ever imagine.I will return and send my friends. The breakfast was waffles and fruit and ready as soon as I got up.The computer available for guests was great for keeping up with friends and family.

Can’t say enough good things about Laurel’s place. She is a marvelous hostess and runs a great establishment. A welcome oasis along the Appalachian Trail, just off the trail in town, close to amenities, and just plain outstanding. Bunk rooms are clean, well outfitted lounge, Wi-Fi access, and plenty of hot water in the shower! You got to love this... More

I'm shocked to read about people finding Laurel to be cold and unwelcoming, it makes me think that they were unwilling to start a real conversation with her. Not only was Laurel (the owner of the Teahorse) accommodating and polite with us, 2 muddy bikers who showed up without reservations late in the evening, but she spent her morning chatting... More

I was very pleased with my stay at Teahorse Hostel. The proprietor, Laurel, was prompt with answering the phone and responding to email when I booked beforehand. The hostel is easy to miss because the sign isn't very big. That said, once you do find it, life is good: the hostel is clean, they accept credit cards, there are laundry... More

I have read the couple of comments about a 'cold' welcome. Not the Tea Horse Hostel, I know. Two of us stayed here, Easter 2012, when the Town Mill Hotel was full. We turned up at the door and were made very welcome. The owner made us tea and the next morning came up to our room to cook us... More

You're just a number here at the Teahorse Hostel. The guests that stay here are super sweet and devoted hikers but don't expect a warm welcome from the owner. I arrived at the hostel hot and tired and was disappointed with the welcome I received. I paid for my two night stay was given the combination number for the bunk... More

When the hostel is full, it is difficult to offer personal attention to each guest. I am sorry you were disappointed. More

I look at reviews like the one I'm about to type and say, "There's always an outlier." We came off the AT after 11 days and staying at two other hostels along the way. We chose to stay here because of other reviews and because it had a vacancy. "Welcoming" is not a word that comes to my mind, but... More

Yes, our guests wash out their own plate, silverware and cup following breakfast - this is in sync with usual hostel rules. No one has ever complained about it or made a sarcastic comment about it. At $32 plus tax per person for bed, shower and waffle breakfast, we feel we offer an exceptional bargain in Harpers Ferry. Hikers frequently... More
