Whatever your destination the Potomac Area Council has a hostel for you, and better yet, each hostel is only a little over an hour from the other! 

The Potomac Area Council of Hostelling International-USA operates hostels and oversees the delivery of educational programming within the Mid Atlantic Region.  We currently have hostels located in Baltimore, MD - near Harpers Ferry, WV - and Washington, DC.  We are developing a hostel in Richmond, VA with a targeted opening date of late 2012.
