I stayed at the Hiker Hostel last night after hiking almost 13 miles on the trail! Shower was wonderful after a long day and bunk was comfortable! Woke up to a fantastic homemade breakfast and got some wonderful photos before heading out! Definitely recommend to everyone looking for a night off the trail! Great folks! 😊 Will stay again!

Leigh and Josh from the Hiker Hostel make the logistics of your AT hiking experience a breeze. They either shuttle you or set up for you to be shuttled. Their place is immaculate and very comfortable. The first night, my son and I stayed in a container cabin, #2 I think. It is so cute, comfortable, and clean. I am... More

I stayed in a container cabin that was fixed up and it was awesome. They have 3 of those I believe plus rooms in the main house. It is mainly used for hikers as a place to stay before or after coming off the Appalachian Trail. They even shuttle hikers to their destination. I was not a hiker but those... More

The staff are super welcoming, the place is clean and inviting and great value. They also offer shuttles to the AT if you're interested in... More

I can't say enough about this place. I was there with two of my kids and 3 former military members had a fabulous stay. The staff and people we meet were amazing. Really makes you feel welcomed.

We stayed in the upcycled, container cabin and it who would have thought ii t was amazing in the inside. Everything you need is there....this places seem to be built out of love and packed with details....right down to the small tree limbs used in the railing.. It is tucked off the main road...easy to find and about 6 miles... More

5 stars....great place, great people, clean, professional! Always look forward to coming back. Highly recommended! They have the best breakfast ever helping us out on our section hikes, and shuttled us to our start point, and picked us up from our stop point. Josh is an animal in that truck! Nothing can stop him from getting his customers out there,... More
