This was our stop on the second day of a 3 day bike trip on the towpath from Cumberland to Washington. After riding over 65 miles you have to climb a long fairly steep hill to get to the Teahorse. It's actually in Bolivar, WV. It caters mostly to Appalachian Trail hikers but bikers are also welcome. Our host was... More

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in Harper's Ferry while biking the C&O Canal or hiking the Appalachian Trail, it's not a bad choice. The proprietor was very friendly and cooked a great breakfast and the fridge was well stocked with pay-as-you-consume-them drinks. There's a shed out back for your bikes, which is a handy way to...

Let me get this straight. You don't want to make your own bed, share a room or bathroom, and you want to sleep in in the morning. The Teahorse Hostel has dormitory style accommodation - one room has 4 beds and the other room has 10 beds. For $33 plus tax per night, guests get a bed in a clean... More

Stayed over the Labor Day weekend and Lauren was just amazing. Checking on us, making waffles for breakfast, it was a pleasure to stay here. We stayed in the 10 bed dorm, which was really clean with clean shared bathrooms too. Location is pretty close to the historic town and a short drive to other nearby sites. Definitely will recommend.

Clean dorm style hostel located up the hill from the train station and Appallachian Trail. Hostess well organized and friendly. Social area very popular for exchanging war stories from the trail. Free breakfast capped off a good stay.

Absolutely wonderful! Laurel, the owner, made everybody as comfortable as possible. She arranged the sleeping areas so that they would accommodate singles or families or hikers or other kinds of visitors. She cooked a great waffle breakfast, the bed was perfectly comfy with a light above it so that I could read. Also- Many AT hikers stay there and she... More

This is a great choice if you're riding the C&O past Harper's Ferry. Laurel was very helpful to me; she had a hose to give my bike a shower, and a locked shed in the back to keep the bike safe. The hostel was clean and comfortable. The Anvil (nearby restaurant) can be a bit pricey, but the burger and... More

As an avid traveler & thru hiker of the AT - I must say this is one of the cleanest & well equipped hostels I have stayed. Laurel was very welcoming & the waffle breakfast was a great start to our day hike. Highly recommend. Miss Wiggy (05)

My sister and I found Laurel to be very unaccomodating and grouchy. We were there early in the season and the place needs a deep cleaning. She asked us why we didn't call first to say we're getting in late. What are you? My mother?! This is only one of several reasons I wouldn't stay here again, and was the... More

We always welcome walk-ins if bunks are available. The trouble with your arrival is that you skipped the step of registering and paying and went straight into the hostel. Guests are welcome to come after 9 pm and those who do usually let me know of their plans so that disruption to other guests is minimized. More

A nice, tidy hostel. Two separate bunkrooms with bunk beds, and waffle breakfast is included! The kitchen is also available to guests all day, and is well-stocked with cookware (BYO food). Laurel also has a good stock of maps, brochures, and books in case you want to spend an extra day in the area.
