About Us

Your Hosts

John "Packrat" Robblee has owned and run the Hikers Welcome since 2000. He is an avid backpacker, and one of a handful of people that is known as a Triple Crowner, for hiking the entire AppalachianTrail('94), Pacific Crest Trail('99), and Continental Divide Trail ('06) from end to end. With over 12,000 miles of hiking under his feet, he is constantly refining the hostel to meet the various needs of the hiking community.

Alyson Moadel-Robblee is Packrat's wife, and also has a true love for the outdoors. She has backpacked in Europe, Scotland, and all over the U.S.     As a psychologist who runs a cancer wellness program for underserved cancer patients, she has recently begun bringing these two worlds together launching the first-ever urban hiking initiative for cancer patients in the Bronx.  

Your Caretakers

Jason "Bisquick" Weaver is an avid outdoorsman with a proclivity for going very far, very slowly. He cycled cross-country in 2013 and hiked the AT in 2017. He enjoys helping adventurers along their journey and is always down to talk gear and experiences.

MK “Brooklyn” Stopa left her life in New York and hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2017 with almost no backpacking experience. Along the way, she picked up the skills she needed and then some. This is her first season at Hiker’s Welcome and she’s looking forward to helping hikers have the best experience possible.
