"The Bozeman Backpackers Hostel in Montana opened in 1991 when the original owner, Jim moved to the area after years of traveling and wanted to return the favor of having somewhere cheap to stay and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the independent hostels he stayed at in Australia and New Zealand.
The current owner (Wayne) came to town the first time in November of 1991 and returned in March 1992 and soon became a semi permanent figure at the hostel. After several years away he moved back to town in 2002 and became the owner in 2003. As a long time traveler Wayne has continued the laid back feel of the place and wants it to feel like a home away from home and not just a place to sleep.
