I had such a wonderful experience with Janet, the owner. I had an issue with my reservation (not her fault at all), and she went above and beyond to help me out. She took so much stress off of me and saved my vacation.

Welcome to the BlairStreet Hostel. I am now in my 4th year owning and operating the Hostel. I am finishing up the new wood floors in the upstairs apartment. I am hoping to have it online soon. I have 2 queen, 2 full, ...More and a single (twin) private room. 4 shared rooms and the bunkhouse. I have spent a great deal of time cleaning up and painting all the rooms, bathrooms and shower areas. New linens in all the rooms, the private rooms do get the higher quality linens, blankets and pillows. the shared areas are standard required linens and blankets and pillows. Totally upgraded Wi-Fi. Safe travels jan Less
