The Hostel is a destination which provides unique and
budget-minded accommodations for travelers. Journeying on a
budget need not be a stark and uncomfortable experience, and indeed
it is one of our goals to purge this misconception. The Wayside Inn and New
Paltz Hostel provides an inviting, interesting
and fun atmosphere for a price which is fair and
reasonable for all.
We are open year round.
The usual stay at the Hostel is between one and five
days, dependent on the schedules of our guests. The maximum stay is
limited to two weeks.
We are located on Main Street near downtown New
Paltz, and are next door to the local bus station which features fifteen daily trips to and from New York City.
We are also within walking distance of many area
attractions, such as the State University of New
York at New Paltz, historic Huguenot Street (the "Oldest street in
America"), and a bevy of fine eateries and unique shops. We are also,
minutes by car, from world-famous rock-climbing on the Shawangunk
Ridge, hiking, mountain-biking, camping, the world-class Mohonk
Mountain House and Preserve, and picturesque Minnewaska State Park. The
area surrounding New Paltz also features many family-oriented
activities including minor-league baseball at Dutchess Stadium, home of
the Hudson Valley Renegades.
The Hostel offers shared accommodations, as well
as private rooms. We provide the linens, a fully equipped,
self-service kitchen, internet access, coin-op laundry, a pleasant
and interesting staff, and most importantly, a degree
of community and human interaction not found in more
traditional "motel" or "hotel" facilities. Drugs,
alcohol and tobacco are NOT
allowed within the Hostel proper. Our spacious porch, has receptacles for the outdoor use of tobacco, but this is
the only exception.
There are staff persons available during our 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. office
hours to handle booking, registration,
information on the area, or to explain Hostel rules.
We require, above all, that guests wish to enjoy a friendly
and fruitful experience with fellow travelers from around the world, in
an environment where all ages can enjoy the fun.
The Hostel offers WiFi throughout the facility, and an Internet Connected
computer for use by those guests that do not have their own.
