This is a beautiful, awesome hostel. Everything is so well thought out. Owner is thoughtful and the place is the best. I didn't want to leave. The pictures you see on the website is exactly as it really looks. So convenient to everything.


The best hostel experience in my life. Clean, quiet, all the practical amenities and a beautifully crafted house that helps you feel like home. Supervisors are present but not obtrusive. Even helpful reminders are posted in non-obtrusive


This place has all the little details that made it a wonderful stay: awesome kitchen amenities, recommendations in town, and a central location that makes it easy to explore downtown Missoula. They even have computers you can use!
