This international hostel does not photograph well so I was not expecting much. But it was excellent. It was homey throughout with many unexpected niceities such as toiletries and hair dryer in the women's room, plenty of towels and a made up bed. The women's rest room is in the dorm room so there is no going down the hall to use the facilities. There were hooks where needed, bureau drawers available. The living, dining, kitchen combo was large and a nice gathering place for guests to visit and share travel tips. Travel literature was available. The hostel is built on a bluff overlooking the Potomac River, 2 miles from Harpers Ferry National Park and the train station. There is a commuter train to Washington DC so this hostel is in an especially good location to visit many places other than Harpers Ferry. It would be easy to spend several nights here and travel to many sites. Antietam Battlefield is an easy day trip. The hostel manager lives on site and was very welcoming. Steve helps out and his suggestions on routes made my visit richer. I stayed three nights going one day to Washington DC, but could easily have used this hostel as a destination for a week. Very reasonable rates. You do have to be out during the day.
