Shady Spruce Hostel

Shady Spruce is located in the heart of an eclectic and dynamic western U.S., specifically downtown Missoula, Montana, . Missoula sits near the crown of the North American continent, surrounded by wilderness, native people, clean free flowing rivers, hot springs, and amazing wild animals. Our cozy hostel serves as a clean, warm, and safe resting place where travelers can converge, energize and network.

I'm Chris, owner of Shady Spruce hostel. I've served extended Peace Corps terms, taught Appropriate Technology at the university level, and hold a Master's of Science degree in renewable energy engineering. I'm happiest when hanging out with others who enjoy exploring, hiking wilderness, cycling lonely roads, fishing and creating art. I'm a person who celebrates diversity, encourages multicultural learning experiences, and enjoys living vicariously through each and every guest that walk through our hostel doors.
