Welcome to TMax-n-Topo's Hostel! We welcome anyone from a single wandering soul to a group of up to 33. We have 4 bunk-rooms (one with 8 bunks, one with 6 bunks, and two with 4 bunks) for 22 bunks overall. There are guest bathrooms (each with a shower) downstairs with the bunk-rooms. The ground floor has a very large kitchen, a dining area and sitting room. We have wireless internet and cable TV, or you can relax on our giant porch. Upstairs we have two motel rooms, one that sleeps up to six and has a full kitchen and one that sleeps up to five and has a small refrigerator, coffee pot, and microwave. Both private rooms have their own bathroom and shower. Please see the photos on the carousel for more information. 

We are located less than 12 miles from Whiteface Mountain, a premiere ski resort, which has the largest vertical drop in the east at well over 3000 feet. TMax-n-Topo's is just moments from several of the major trail-heads (Adirondack Loj road is 1/2 mile to the west) for hiking the Adirondack high peaks along with some of the best ice-climbing in the northeast. TMax-n-Topo's is located just outside the village of Lake Placid, so you can relax on our three and a half acres while still only being two minutes away from the Olympic Village! 

If you have any questions about us or the area, do not hesitate to call and ask. If we do not have the answer, we will try to find it for you.
