Godspeed Hostel Offers One-of-a-Kind Place to Stay in Happy Valley

The next time you stay in Happy Valley, you can have a one  of  a  kind experience. The first hint that you are in for a

different kind of stay is the Bald Eagle Creek winding its way through the property, complete with trout and fishing holes.

Twenty acres of manicured open space, forest, and wetlands make the getaway feel much more than just ten minutes from the stadium. Welcome to Godspeed Hostel!

“Instead of just staying overnight somewhere,” says owner Lyn Grande, “you could be visiting with other people around a fire pit at night. You could be hearing new perspectives, meeting new friends.”

Modeled after the owner Bart Grande's experiences staying in Central American surf camps, you can enjoy a good night's sleep at the brand  new hostel for as low as $40 a night with group rates also available. Rent a private room with queen  sized bed and pull  out couch, vaulted ceiling and beautiful view, or enjoy true hostel living in the bunkhouse. Offering full  sized mattress bunkbeds, lots of natural light and a central common area, the bunkhouse is separated into a men's area and women's area.

A main house features a community TV room with Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, Netflix, and Wifi. Enjoy a K  cup coffee machine, microwave, fresh muffins, snacks, and fruit. The extensive grounds and new, inexpensive accommodations make it equally as perfect for reunions, large family gatherings, families with young children, and budget travelers. Rent out the entire bunkhouse and grounds for an on  location wedding, reunion, or retreat.

Godspeed is open Thursdays through Sundays this fall and again in the spring. You can book your stay for a football weekend, or book early for Blue White Weekend, and experience hostel living right here in Happy Valley!
