This facility is not bad for hostel but I would not recommend it if you are riding the C&O Canal bike trail because it's located too far off the trail - about 1 mile away and up two (2) steep hills. The bunks were comfortable with fitted sheets and the bathrooms were clean but the room rate was expensive for... More

After our first 58 miles of cycling the C&O Canal (en-route to Pittsburgh) - seven friends and I were thrilled to arrive at the Teahorse Hostel. Our host Laurel welcomed us to a comfortable second floor bunk room with great hot showers and colorful bunks. The waffle breakfast (beautifully prepared by laurel's son) with fresh fruit was a great way... More

I have stayed at the wonderful Teahorse hostel three times when biking the C&O from DC to Harpers Ferry. This place is very special, with a unique blend of thru-hikers, section hikers, folks biking the C&O and just fellow travelers. The evenings I've spent at the Teahorse getting to know people whose stories are all different and interesting have been... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in May having cycled out from DC on the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal towpath and back on the Washington & OD trail. 2 weary cyclists were welcomed by Laurel and it was wonderful to have a hot shower and relax in light, airy and clean surroundings. Although the hostel has mixed dormitories, Laurel makes... More

I dropped off an AT through-hiking friend who is recovering from a foot injury. The staff were wonderful and the accommodations were great for a hostel. Very clean with lots of amenities. This is a great place for rest and breakfast whether you are a weary through-hiker or just visiting for the weekend from the city.

My wife and I had a perfect section hike planned. We spoke with Laurel (the owner of the Teahorse) before heading to Harpers Ferry - and planned to use her shuttle service up to the Mason-Dixon line. We had planned to hike South back to the Teahorse, but our perfect hike quickly turned into a "perfect storm" after an unfortunate... More

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.
