This is a shared female dorm bunk room in a hostel. The room sleeps six and you will most likely be sharing it with other travelers. 4 blocks to downtown. There is also a mixed dorm available on the property. Located in a old home with great back yard, and bikes to borrow. Full access to kitchen and shared bath.

The space

We need to be very clear, this is a communal hostel. You will be sharing the space with other people. Staff lives on site to manage and clean the property and to help in emergencies, however we do not keep office hours and you might never meet us in person during your stay.

We expect our guests to accept a certain level of personal responsibility in being able to navigate the property, check in, and check out on their own.

When you arrive please claim a bed by pulling the blanket out.

There is a full kitchen for you to use with pots and pans. Please make sure to clean up after yourself in the kitchen and anywhere in the house.

There is parking available in our driveway and on select areas of our neighborhood. DO NOT block anyone in our parking lot, and make sure to read the parking map in the common room as to where you can park on the street.

Thanks, and we do hope to see you soon!

Guest access

An email will be sent the day prior to your arrival with the current door code and directions to your room for for self check-in. If you do not receive this email please call or email us directly.

Interaction with guests

There is a resident care taker that lives on the property. Staff does not keep regular office hours, but is available 24/7 should you have any emergency. If you have any questions or concerns our phone numbers are listed on the dry erase board in the common room. Please feel free to call or text.

Other things to note

We ain't fancy, don't try to be, don't want to be. If you're lookin' for fancy, if you need fancy, you'll probably wanna go somewhere else.

We only say this because we want you to enjoy your vacation even more than you do. We want you to be happy wherever that is.

We are rough around the edges. Our house that is a hostel is 140 years old. It's in decent shape, we try our best to make it pretty... but it is 140 years old.

We are a hostel. We are young. People here drink and laugh and play music on the front porch and back deck. We have dinner nights with our local friends and new friends that are our guests at the Hostel. We'd love for you to be a part of that.

Sometimes it's quiet, sometimes it's not, but we do try to keep it under control. The crowd changes every couple days, so we make no guarantees about who your hostel-mates will be.

Please be aware of these things as you consider where to stay. Again, we want you to be happy and enjoy your vacation. We hope that it's with us.

Stella's was just amazing! Seriously, I spent the week here and it was a fantastic experience. The area was beautiful, downtown was close, I felt very safe, and Bertie was a fantastic hostess!!!!! I wouldn't change a thing, and I will definitely recommend this place to future peeps I know will be in the area.

Oh it's a surprise to me! The house is really managed pretty and tidy by the manager and everything is in order. I feel really relax in it. There are several plugs beside the beds and it's really convince.

This was the cutest place! The "house" had so much charm! The beds were super comfy and check in was so easy. I never met the host or anyone (I slept) but the house was cute! The only downfall was that becuase it's a hostel and people do drink, I was awoken at 2am by everyone coming home from the bars and they had opened up the female room door and left it wide open while they were socializing in the kitchen, so bright lights were shining on me and I got pretty much no sleep. But this is not the hosts fault, it clearly states in the kitchen to be quiet after 10, it was just the other guests being inconsiderate. I would still highly recommend it to anyone and will stay they on again in the future :)

Hi Kim! I'm sorry to hear your sleep was disrupted but thank you for being so understanding, considering the circumstances. I sleep like a rock so sometimes I just don't hear a thing, I will do my best to enforce the quiet hours! Thank you for your feedback about the shower too, its hard to make an older tub look spiffy, but I'll keep trying!

When booking Stella hostels we were a bit nervous bc were used to hotels or private air bnbs. But once we arrived everything was fine. There are directions & a phone number if you need any assistance. This was very easy, cheap & convenient for us & highly recommended!
