North Fork Hostel & Square Peg Ranch

Top choice hostel in Glacier National Park

Glacier’s quirky hostel requires a bit of legwork to get to and lacks the basic comforts of other park lodges (electricity is limited), but in many ways that’s part of the appeal. There are 13 dorm spaces, a couple of cabins, some teepees and camping trailers on-site. Vintage homesteads at the Square Peg Ranch up the road are also available.

Facilities include wi-fi (well, for around an hour a day), fully equipped kitchen with a propane stove, hot showers and outhouse toilets.
