Welcome to our newly constructed Hostel located in the “Coolest Small Town in America”, Grand Marais, Minnesota! Check out our Private Rooms and Shared Bunks, or rent out the Entire Hostel.

Located just a short drive outside of the town of Grand Marais , Minnesota,  the Hungry Hippie Hostel is nestled in the hillside overlooking beautiful Lake Superior.  On the edge of the wilderness, a mile off of the Superior Hiking Trail and at the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, the Hungry Hippie Hostel is a great place to relax after an eventful day of play.  Let us give you a fun, local North Shore experience!

A hostel is a budget orientated, sociable accommodation that is shared among individual travelers and groups for short term stays. We provide common areas and shared facilities with our two and a half bathrooms, cozy lounge, and a primitive kitchenette with a refrigerator, hot plate, microwave and sink. The Hungry Hippie Hostel provides individual or a semi-private group bunk room in our bunkhouse loft or private rooms fully furnished with a queen sized bed at a budget friendly price. Many hostels are located in remarkable buildings. Ours is in our beautiful refurbished barn on our small family farm in Grand Marais.
