I am considering going to Hanover, NH sometime in the next few weeks, if I can get out there, to visit Dartmouth College. I was wondering if there were any hostels open year round in Hanover, if so, how much would it cost me to stay there.

Thanks,
Kirby

Kirby, send a private message to Jack Tarlin in case he doesn't see this thread, he lives there and has the most up-to-date info.

The ALDHA guide lists a hostel in Canaan NH, 16 miles to the east. ("A.T. Hilton", 603 252 8295, apexlake@hotmail.com). But no hostel listing for Hanover itself. And the hostel in Canaan seems to have a short season --
6/15 to 8/15.

Someone should open one, perhaps Dartmouth College as a service to the community.

some college frats used to let hikers stay but hikers ****ed it up. dartmouth is obligated to it's students. hikers can fend for themselves.

Don't know how big of rush you're in, but a lot of schools have an open house weekend and they'll put you up in the dorms for free.

Used to be able to stay at a church in town until the hikers screwed that up too.

shame too, the frats were a great set-up.

i was the last hiker to stay @ panarchy. (some a$$hole hiker fought a member the night before i got to hanover.)

We stayed at Tiggers Treehouse on our hike - not sure though if they would put you up off season. Might give them a call. Nice people.

Phi Tau is the only fraternity that allowed hikers in when i stayed there a few months ago. it's within walking distance of the trail.

Since classes have started up, no Dartmouth frat or residence hall is presently taking in hikers.

Kirby: Let me know your plans. As there are still folks living in my place for a bit and I'm staying at my friends' place next door, acccomodations are a bit spartan at present, tho I'm sure we can find a place for you. If you're travelling with your family, I suggest you check out the Sunset Motel just across the town line in Lebanon (603) 643-2550 or the Chieftain Motel in Hanover at (603) 298-8721. Both are convenient to town, similarly priced, and very friendly. But if I can help you with anything before or after you get here, let me know.

If you're coming up to visit the college, Kirby, your best bet is to contact the Admissions Office at (603) 648-2875; they have a program for hosting visiting prospective students and will help you out; more information is available at their website, just Google "Dartmouith Admissions Office."
