Come Hang Out for Awhile...

Harpers Ferry Hostel is closer than you think.

Welcome to Harpers Ferry Hostel!

Sitting atop a hill overlooking the Potomac River, just off RT 340 on the Maryland side of the Potomac River, the CrossTrails Harpers Ferry Hostel is ideally situated for adventure seekers and history buffs from the DC metro, and mid-atlantic region.

The hostel’s location provides a great home base for paddlers on the Potomac or Shenandoah River, bikers on the C&O Canal, and hikers on the Appalachian Trail.


COVID-19 Impact Statement

The ongoing global pandemic has severely impacted hosteling as we know it, and Harpers Ferry Hostel is no exception. One of our goals has been to continue to offer a home away from home for interstate and international travelers, as well as those frequenting the trails and rivers around us. We will continue to do so, albeit in a limited capacity.
