This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Redwood.
Redwood is an otherwise relatively obscure village located in Jefferson County, New York. With a total population of some six hundred-plus residents, it is an unassuming, quiet, and very discreet city. It's not necessarily the first place you would expect to find a hostel. While not exactly the perfect fare for party-goers and adventurers, Redwood is an excellent place to disappear. While not exactly the best when it comes to nightlife and convivial partying, Redwood does offer its quaint pleasures in the rustic, homey inns and eateries that populate the otherwise small area.
Redwood may not be able to boast lots of hostels or a near-international line of competitively amazing and mouthwatering cuisines for the gourmand, but it does boast its own style of homey, filling, traditional meals. In this small village, one of the best places to get some decent grub is in JK’s Roadhouse, a sizable, family-run and -owned business that serves the best barbecues in their side of town. Aside from the other gems that await discovery in the numerous homes that may run a family bed-and-breakfast, Redwood also features its own local restaurants, which, due to its smallish nature, can be difficult to explore unless you opt for a first-hand experience.
Redwood may not exactly be a center of arts and culture, but the quiet village can be an excellent place to get away from the endless noise and bustle of the city. If you’re looking to relax and unwind by allowing nature to soothe your weary traveler’s soul, Kring Point State Park can be an excellent place to take a whiff of fresh air and to enjoy the sights of sprawling greenery. Redwood may be an obscure place, but obscure places usually hold treasures for the intrepid traveler who dares to try the unconventional or the commonplace. Because of its low tourism, booking a hostel in Redwood is easy, although you do get the true feel of things if you book as you come instead of doing so in advance. Try visiting Redwood and see what unexpected creature comforts you may find!
