It might work as long as there is someone who collects money and enforces rules everyday. Hikers don't do well on the honor system.

IMO Bland seriously needs a full-blown hostel or the equivalent (e.g., laundry available on premises or nearby). Of course, so does Troutdale, Troutville/220, and Waynesboro, for that matter.
