It is what it is...a hostel. Clean, great bathrooms, coin laundry (a must for riders), storage for bike, and great food a couple doors up. Nice lounge area with a decent TV. Bring earplugs as trains run behind the hostel late into the night. Then again, you already know to bring earplugs...it's a hostel.

Best place to stay on The GAP. After a long time in the saddle (so to speak) riding in the rain it was wonderful to arrive in Rockwood and easily find the Hostel on Main. Greeted by pleasant staff and provided with clean bed linen and towel. Shower was hot and strong, after which I washed and dried my clothes... More

While on my way biking from DC to Pittsburgh, I was definitely happy to stay a night inside at the Hostel on Main! Perfect place to do some laundry, take a hot shower, and get in a restful night! Highly recommended to anyone looking for an inexpensive, small town night.

Great value for money; excellent location for the GAP trail and for food/water; relaxing atmosphere; great staff, very reasonable rates. I really appreciated that there was a history book on the town of Rockwood at the hostel. Reading that gave me a much better feel for the town, and let me learn more about where I was-as a history person,... More

Hi Jim, Thank you for the compliments. It is kind of funny, but any "group" that has stayed at the Hostel say that it has been one of the best group experiences spending time on the back deck reminiscing with friends. We hope to see you and your group again. Judy More

A step above basic hostel accommodations with friendly owners and staff. Met our needs for an affordable, dry indoor stay while cycling the GAP. Secure indoor storage for bicycles including a hose to rinse the bikes and tire pump. Sheets included in the price.

I wasn't able to come till after the end of check-in time (9pm), and they were very accommodating. They told me during my reservation that I could let myself in after-hours, which was perfect, as I got lost on my drive to PA, so I just needed to get in and go to sleep. They offer shared and private rooms.... More

The place was clean, staff went out of their way to help and the pizza they make is pretty tasty. If you get started after 7:00 am they offer a good and excellent priced breakfast. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
