I have stayed at this hostel twice.Once while hiking part of the Appalachian Trail.And once while bicycling down the C&O Canal Towpath. Both times the HI Harpers Ferry Hostel provided a great place for a well deserved rest.
Since many of the guests are hikers or bikers , its a great place to exchange information about the trails.Especially if they are going the oppisite way as you .Its also conveniently accessable to both trails.
Its basicly a clean and comfortable no frills hostel with friendly staff.My only complaint is that there is a "lock out" period during the day. But i understand that they must do this since they do have a tight budget .And at $20 a night it is a bargin.I have been to 22 other hostels and this one was one of the cheapest.
It also has a computer with free internet access.This is rare . In most hostels they charge for internet time.
I defintly will stay here on my next bike trip on the C&O Canal.
If you are staying there my best advice is to hike up Maryland Hieghts.Its Marylands highest mountain and offers a great view of Harpers Ferry.It also has the remains of a Civil War fort on top of it.
