Site 61 Hostel is a clean, comfortable, and sociable accommodation--more like like a quirky bed-and-breakfast. We invite all ages to enjoy our historic, restored rooming house with its sci-fi influenced details, free wi-fi, parking, and continental breakfast. We have mixed 2-bed, 4-bed, and 6-bed dorm rooms, and can arrange for private rooms with advance notice. Each of the eight full bathrooms include toilet, lavatory and shower. The spacious indoor kitchen is fully stocked with cooking supplies and the patio kitchen has running water, a charcoal grill and propane stove. There is a TV in the kitchen, a reading lounge and a game lounge. Business services are also available.
