I'll preface this "review" by saying we have not yet stayed here. We made a reservation last October 2015 for 2 weekends in July 2016. In January 2016, we had a change of travel plans and needed to cancel one of the weekends. It is now March 2016 and we still have not received the refund for the cancelled weekend!... More

The bunk room was exceptionally clean, all linen provided and fresh towels. The kitchenette had sufficient utensils and cooking euqipment to be able to cook a decent meal. The location of the hostel is close to everything, a short walk to the public library, post office, multiple cafes, a few secondhand book stores, a grocery shop and pharmacy. Greg the... More

Great place to stay!!! Although there was some confusion about our booking, we had a place to sleep for the night. We hostel is small, and cozy but with great upgrades facilities. It is clean and well equipped. we wished we could stay longer. The grocery store is just a few blocks away.

This is a fairly new hostel, located just behind the main road in Columbia Falls. After a few days of camping in GNP, I needed a place to shower and sleep before an early flight out of FCA. Before, my options were usually La Quinta or Motel 6 and they can be extremely pricey during the summer and not great... More

I stayed here four nights. Located in a really quiet neighborhood, just a short drive to Glacier and lots of other beautiful hiking and visiting destinations. Smith's grocery store, Montana Coffee Traders, the Backroom (bbq!) and lovely city parks are a quick walk. The hostel's immaculate, with gorgeous woodwork and a great kitchen, the bed and pillows were super comfortable,... More
