Nancy and Jeff are proud to invite you to stay with us at Next Step Hostel.


We completed the Appalachian Trail in 2014, only because we, like most backpackers, relied on Trail Angels and Hostels:  we could not have finished the AT without their support.  In that spirit, we're delighted to give back to the wilderness community.



Located 10 miles off the Pinhoti Trail
Three block east of town square in Talladega

We charge no fees for shuttling from Cheaha Mountain, Adams Gap or Porter's Gap to Next Step Hostel.

We charge no fees for staying with us or for using our amenities.

If pressed, we'll accept a donation in any amount you choose.

We offer Next Step Hostel as a service, not as a business.
