If you're looking for a private cabin or hostel room in East Glacier, there simply isn't a better deal. Heck, there probably isn't a better deal within 100 miles of this place. We rented a private cabin for two nights for less than $100, all-in. Our historic cabin (from a Sears kit?) had plenty of space, a comfy bed, a...

Backpacker's Inn and Hostel is located behind Serranos Mexican Restaurant in East Glacier, Montana. You can get a bunk for $15 or a private cabin for $40 or $45. The rooms are simple, clean, and look out onto a yard/garden that is quite pleasant. If you are like me, you aren't going to Glacier National Park to sit in your...

We were so tired from hiking that it didn't matter. Comfortable bed, nice hot shower, clean cabin and really friendly service. Don't miss out on going to Serranos for dinner but...

“Both rooms seemed nice. But I would pay the $40 if you have it for a private room because the split rooms for four people at $15 a night seemed like kind of tight quarters. It just depends on your preference.”
