Garden Camping & Crashers

A note from Hostel Staff:

In keeping with our 15 year tradition of always having a place to stay for backpackers; Camping and Crashing has become very popular for free spirited travelers!

We ask that everyone who camps or crashes comes with a great sense of adventure and knowledge that we are a “Hostel”.

Some nights are quite and some nights are just plain roisterous!

Bring your earplugs and any other trick you have to help you sleep; Unless the sounds of  explosive laughter, off key singing and “Breaking Amish” Fun are your lullaby when you are ready for bed!
