South Side Traveler’s Rest

Boutique Hotel Lodging In Pittsburgh Along The Great Allegheny Passage

A Traveler’s Oasis

As the only licensed hostel in Pitts­burgh, SSTR offers comfort­able and afford­able lodging along the Great Allegheny Passage trail with accom­mo­da­tions and ameni­ties for all types of trav­elers. Our hostel is located in the South Side neigh­bor­hood of the city in a historic building with char­acter and crafts­man­ship dating back to 1883. Offering both shared or private rooms, we offer conve­nient lodging near the sports stadiums, conven­tion centers, and local univer­si­ties.


Inspired by our own travel expe­ri­ences, we look forward to welcoming you to the spir­ited city of Pitts­burgh.

Enjoy your stay in a unique histor­ical building, and still have access to neces­sary ameni­ties: wi-fi, parking, a short walk or drive to loads of restau­rants and taverns, and the Down­town Core.


If you are visiting our area, consider a more unique expe­ri­ence than typical Pitts­burgh hotels. SSTR welcomes all kinds of trav­elers. Whether you’re from another conti­nent or just another corner of Penn­syl­vania. Whether you’re here to take in some theater or attend your college roommate’s wedding. Whether you’re a veteran of hostels or a newbie. You’re more than welcome!
