City House Hostel Poconos is quite literally only a stones throw from the Lehigh River and just 4 short minutes from the D&L Trail.

It’s not hard to find beauty in a place nestled between the Lehigh River, the D&L Trail, and the ski loving slopes of the Pocono Mountains.

The Jim Thorpe, PA area has drawn canoers, kayakers, bikers, hikers, ski enthusiasts, mediation guides, artists, and athletes from New York City, Philadelphia, and the entire east coast for decades. We’re excited to share it with you, at City House Poconos.

Come enjoy the nature and recreation in Poconos – we are less than 2 hours from New York City, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia, and 25 minutes from the ski heaven of Pennsylvania!

City House Hostel is in walking distance from everything that makes the Lehigh Valley and the Poconos world famous! From rafting, kayaking, canoeing or tubing on the Lehigh River to hiking and biking on the D&L Trail and skiing at Big Boulder Mountain and Jack Frost!

After a day exploring the great outdoors, enjoy the local restaurants, bars, coffee shops and adventures like axe throwing at the newly revitalized Hofford Mill and the quaint town of Weissport.
