Travel Blogs from Knoxville
Howdy everyone. Sorry about updateing about 4 posts in one day! have just been trying to catch up after a busy few days in New York and Philadelphia, that I just didn't have time to post.

We have had to luxury of planning for about 6 weeks. We were taking a tour, but had to cancel due to a traveling companion having a knee problem. Luckily, we had travel guard insurance so filed a claim then started a whole new plan.
We have never been on a cruise so decided we might as well try it now.

Woke up to a delicious breakfast of ham and cheese omelets by Chef Marcus, who don't need no spatula to flip some eggs.

How has this hostel rated in the past?
On arrival, the hostel just seems like someones house. The old man who runs it "Al" is very sweet and full of information about the whole area! Brian who also runs the hostel is also very nice, and helpful. It's a very small hostel, and not many guests seem to stay more then one night, it's perfect for a 1 night stay, maybe 2, if you are with friends. For a person travelling on their own, it's not so great, as it's a bit quiet!
It's a little run down and needs a good clean, the back yard could do with clearing so there is a better outside area for people to sit. Location wise, it's not too bad, it's about a mile round trip to downtown knoxville and back.
