    Default Hiker Hostel In Dahlonega Review

    My wife and I hiked the Springer/Neel Gap section over the Labor day weekend and we decided to stay at the Hiker Hostel and use their shuttle service. The hostel itself is a beautiful log home with all the amenities of home. We reserved a private room with it's own bathroom for a mere $42!! The top floor had a computer for all guests and the wi-fi was great. The basement level had a full kitchen, laundry, and comfy living room area. Breakfast the next morning was included with the room price. Like everthing else, it was great! The wife , another hiker and I were shuttled over to Springer as soon as we had our gear ready. Our price for two was $51. We all got to Mountain crossings about 3 hours early and they came early to get us. The shuttle back was $31. When we went to settle up the bill, the amount was less than quoted! The owners, Leigh and Josh said they adjusted it since we shared a shuttle with another hiker. I was so pleased I gave them the difference and a little more for a tip. These folks know how to treat people and we're planning another section with them. A true class act!

    My son and I stayed the night there in late June and had an excellent experience as well. Had planned to go back later in the summer but had to cancel at the last minute. Agree with everything you posted. It is an excellent deal, and they are great hosts!

    Amen. I can't recommend Josh and Leigh Saint's Hiker Hostel enough. They definitely have it together there in Dahlonega. Highly rec a night there when traveling from afar to hike the AT! I would say most who support the AT and AT hikers are AWESOME folks too

    Yep, yep, yep! My son and I stayed 2 nights in June with shuttle service for what turned out to be a pretty short hike. I'll be going back next June.
