Yellow Deli Hiker's Hostel

23 Center St, Rutland VT 05701


Our premier hostel location along the Appalachian Trail is Rutland, VT. We've been operating as a hostel since 2012 in that location, offering hikers rides into town and a clean, affordable place to stay and clean up. Downstairs, we also run a small casual café-style restaurant named The Yellow Deli. Our hostel is listed as #8 on The Trek's Hiker's Choice: Favorite Appalachian Trail Hostels: Best Hostels on the Appalachian Trail

You will eat well here, and be welcomed to work on their farm, which is a super cool experience. The community feel is hard to leave, and it’s right in town and within walking distance to all amenities you’ll need in town... Hiker Praise: “Working on the farm was a cool experience, appreciated sitting in on their sabbath celebration to experience some of the culture.”

Travelers take note, the people here are interesting, welcoming, and open to questions, and the food is delicious and wholesome. We were told that we should look up other community locations if we were ever in need of a place to stay.

Before dinner at this hostel they always have a celebration service with testimonies, music and dancing. This is a great group of people who serve the hiker community wholeheartedly!

My experience: They are incredibly accommodating individuals. Jeremiah picked us up and drove us almost an hour to their location in Lancaster, NH. I received a clean mattress... as well as a welcome basket. These two days were much needed, and I feel well-rested and ready to hike onward.
