Just a few miles out of Grand Marais, this hostel is spotlessly clean and nearly new. You should be clear - if you get a bunk in the bunkhouse, and not a private room, you get exactly that. Your neighbors could vary by age and gender (and volume of snoring!), so if you're modest or concerned about not having a place to lock up valuables other than your vehicle, go the private room option. The bunks are rock solid and don't move even if the other sleeper (upper or lower) is restless, and earplugs are thoughtfully provided. :)
If you're going to be in GM for a few days or stopping through on a trail hike, this is a great, low-cost option. Other hotels and resorts in the area are pretty expensive, but Kate and Jeremy have provided comfortable accommodations at a very reasonable price, and they are friendly and helpful hosts.
