Update: New hostel opening in Burlington, Vermont June 2010. Visit the Burlington Hostel's website.
The Burlington Free Press reports that a hostel in Burlington, Vermont is closing (2006) -- see above for a link to the new Burlington Hostel's website (2010).
"For 31 years, Mrs. Farrell's Home Hostel has endured — 12 years as a cottage near Malletts Bay in Colchester and the last 19 years as a six-bed house at 27 Arlington Court in Burlington's New North End. . .
All of that is about to end. Mrs. Farrell's Home Hostel is for sale. The 73-year-old owner said she wants to spend her latter years in Washington state to be near her daughter. That means Burlington could be off the map as an inexpensive destination for many young travelers."
