The hostel will ultimately accommodate up to 35 guests, offering both dormitory style and private sleeping rooms, with rest room and kitchen facilities, as well as lockers, Wi-Fi and bike detailing.
Located on Pittsburgh’s historic South Side, it’s the only hostel within walking/biking distance to Downtown Pittsburgh.
“The location, just a half mile from trail access, is perfect for the Great Allegheny Passage traveler,” says Mary Beth Karabinos.
The hostel’s opening is a welcome attraction for international travelers to the City of Pittsburgh. “We want to be a haven for bicyclists finishing and beginning their GAP journeys as well as a destination for domestic and foreign travelers of varying budgets,” added Karabinos.
