Baltimore, close to Washington D.C, is a popular destination for travelers. Located in the state of Maryland, Baltimore is also the largest independent city in the US. There are about 640,000 residents in Baltimore while the greater metropolitan area is home to almost 2.7 million people.

The city is well served by most forms of public transport so you have a wide variety of convenient location choices when choosing your Baltimore hostel. Having your own car, though, is a huge advantage when it comes to mobility and freedom of travel, and is a highly recommended option (rentals are reasonably priced in the US, too). Baltimore has its own airport, is served by the Amtrak train service, and buses are also an affordable way to get to and from the city.

There is a good selection of hostels in Baltimore and the price/quality ratio is good. Like in most cities in the U.S, you're looking at about 20-25 dollars for a dorm bed and a bit more for doubles / twins.

One thing to see while staying in a Baltimore hostel is the harbor, which is the city's center for dining and shopping, and often hosts live music acts by jazz musicians. If you're interested in history, the famous Fort McHenry is also in Baltimore and is worth your time. The tourist district in general is a great place to spend some time. If you're a fan of seafood, you should also try out one of the local delicacies: the steamed crab, crab bisque, or crab cake, which are also well known local foods.
