What the Media and Critics Are Saying: "Travelers on a budget have a new lodging option in Whitefish. For about the same price as a campground spot, guests at the Whitefish Hostel are treated to comfy beds, a hot shower and even fresh coffee and baked goods in the morning...They've been remodeling the former Quickees restaurant in the Railway District into an upscale, yet economical, hostel and cafe...The hostel menu features an organic salad bar, a sandwich of the day, smoothies, baked and raw goods, and a coffee and juice bar. One of their specialties is a vegan chocolate avocado pudding." (Whitefish Pilot; 7/10/13)
