Somewhere between a resort and camping, Lost River Hostel is a nonprofit arts and cultural center located on a 29 acre hillside in West Baden Springs. With the farmhouse on a hillside and the guesthouse in the forest, the hostel is a hub of conversation and inspiration. A lovingly prepared communal dinner is included with each night's stay.

The Bird’s Neat was awesomely located in the woods overlooking the main path and shower house. The bed was big and comfy. The windows were the best part. Just up a rock stairway from the treehouse is an amazing lagoon we spent much of our time at.
Staff was incredible, welcoming, helpful. Kim was outstanding as a host.

Ramshackle in the best possible way - laid back, woodsy and farm like.
Roaming chickens, muddy frog pond, outhouses, outdoor bath, there is one guest indoor bathroom on the property.

If you have never been to a hostel before its a community environment helping out encouraged.

Great art room it was well stocked lots to use. Awesome bongo drums and fire circle. Walking is a big part of being on the property, roaming deer, squirrels, saw an eagle flying over.
