Great hostel. Tmax and Topo definitely have things well in order and provide great hospitality. There is a large common area, a large common kitchen, food for sale, pool, tennis court, firepit, small BBQ grill, etc. Did not see the bunk rooms but stayed in the Roaring Brook 'motel' room and it was excellent. Definitely the best value in town if you have more than four people, and probably still if you have less. The prices are reasonable, the location is perfect, and I honestly couldn't ask for more. Although I am also satisfied with Keene Valley Hostel, I think Tmax and Topos definitely have a better situation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- TMax and topofgothics (Terri and David) met in the Adirondacks in 2003 and have hiked there together since. TMax-n-Topo’s offers everything from bunks starting at $28 a night to a private suite. Both are 46ers and have earned the 46er winter rocker. TMax is currently working the Grid and is half-way there, so we can offer lots of hiking information. David completed a thru-hike of the AT in 2009. TMax is a 115er and is working on the state high-points list and Colorado's 14-thousand footers. ... more less
