I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. They did an excellent job. I enjoyed meeting and talking with fellow guests. My one request would be for the hostel to open in April, rather than waiting until May 1. Spring is a beautiful time of year, and I would welcome the hostel opening 2 -4 weeks earlier.

Loretta, the hostel manager was very hospitable. She welcomed me with such warmth that she made what would have been an otherwise bleak getaway from the city into a familial and enjoyable weekend. Her breakfasts are amazing, unlike any I have had at any other HI hostel and I have stayed in many (Paris, HI-Chamounix, HI-Montreal, HI-Santa Monica and D.C). The Civil War Dinner was most enjoyable. It was appropriately during the John Brown Raid anniversary, so good for a round-table discussion
