International Hostel

Wellspring joined Hostelling International in 1990. The hostel is open year-round for either individuals or for small groups. The hostel has 7 twin beds with an adjoining bathroom and shower. A private room is available upon request.

Many cherish the tranquil rural setting and the environmental haven that is Wellspring. Learning opportunities abound. Hostelers may join a class or workshop that Wellspring Education Center provides. Hostlers can get in touch with the earth by doing a little hands-on gardening from April through October. There may be a possibility to garden in exchange for some veggies or pastured chicken eggs.

The purpose of Hostelling International is “to help all, especially the young, to gain a greater understanding of the world and its people through hostelling.” HI memberships can be purchased at Wellspring and give people of all ages the opportunity to experience U.S. and worldwide hostelling. Membership includes travel insurance, hostel guides, maps and more!
