    Got it. Thanks. Marked it in the book as highly possible.

    Hemlock Hollow is a bit close to Hot Springs for most going NOBO, but can be handy for a SOBO.

    There is also Greasy Creek Friendly which is a little closer to half way between HS and Erwin. Is the crazy nieghbor still at it? If so, he's the crack of dawn alarm clock.

    Sorry, my memory failed me. Greasy Creek is a 1 or 2 days north of Erwin. Still, an interesting place to visit and if nothing else, buy a burger.

    So, Hemlock remains the only hostel between HS and Erwin.
