“Exceeded My Expectations for a Hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I did a 5 day backpacking hike front Front Royal up to Harpers Ferry. Spend first and last nights at this hostel. Laurel's hospitality and low key character were helpful, and so was shuttle service for free around town. The place is clean, has 3 different sleeping areas, is quiet is close enough to a few simple restaurants and a few blocks from basic 7-11 store. 1 free computer downstairs, and laundry for $5. Breakfast is wholesome and filling fresh fruit, bananas, waffles, juice and coffee. Lots of thru hikers and some section hikers stayed there. Would definitely stay again, and I do recommend it to others. Keep it up Laurel.

We were glad to host you for more than one night as your group of three hiked around Harpers Ferry. Hope you get to do that thru-hike one day!

Laruel was again wonderful to work with. She provided our family with a shuttle to our starting point for our backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. Her hospitality and attention translate to her business. We highly recommend her to anyone. You will not be dissapointed in her hostel or her shuttle services.

Laurel picked up three weary, muddy, foul-smelling cyclists from the C&O canal towpath (me & 2 friends) and chauffeured us to the hostel. She was a lifesaver, and that was just the beginning. Comfortable, clean, and a great breakfast. We slept like babies, and woke ready for another 50+ mile day on the path. The Tea Horse is great, and Laurel is very special.

Room Tip: We had the 3-bed downstairs room and it was quiet, no stairs to climb, easy access to the street, ha...

My girlfriend and I stayed here to end our trip on the C & O towpath and ended up using Laurel's Shuttle Service back to our car. Not only was she kind and helpful, but her accommodations were excellent. Very clean and comfortable..she sets the standard. Added bonus, of course, waffles with orange juice and fruit for breakfast hit the spot in the morning. Highly recommend the Teahorse Hostel.

My family was hiking the Maryland section of the Appalachian Trail over spring break. We arrived at Laurel's lovely hostel after driving in from Cincinnati. This was my children's first experience staying in one. After a great nights sleep in a clean and comfortable guest room we woke up to a great breakfast of waffles, fruit, juice and coffee. Laurel then drove us in our car to Pen Mar park where we began our hike back to Harpers Ferry. We then were able to hike from Pen Mar to the Tea Horse Hostel where Laurel had our care waiting for us.

We really had a fantastic time at this hostel and it was a great start to our trip.

Laurel stayed up late for my late arrival. Very clean, welcoming place to stay for a hiker. Breakfast is included in price and was very good. Will stay there next year on my thru hike! Harpers Ferry a cool place to visit.
