- Pinkham Room (shared bunk room, first floor).
- We can accommodate up to two dogs per night. Please email us using the Contact Us form before booking to reserve a space for your dog.
- Carter room (small private)
- We have a large open crate and comfy dog bed that you can use if staying with your dog in the Pinkham Room. If you have a lively dog, crating him/her at bedtime may help other guests feel more comfortable sharing a room with your dog (and prevents dogs from visiting guests on other bottom bunks in the middle of the night! 🙂 ).
- Please leash your dog while in the hostel. Most of our guests so far have loved dogs, but some people are allergic or nervous around them, so we appreciate you keeping your dog by your side when in communal areas.
- Absolutely no dogs on beds or furniture.
- Scoop the poop! We have a pooper scooper and bucket that you can use during your stay.
- If you leave the hostel, please bring your dog with you
