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 her sights on bringing these two worlds together by launching the first-ever urban hiking initiative for cancer patients in the Bronx.

  Both born and raised in Southwest Florida, Jenna (Sneak) Belscher and Courtney (Coco) Wyville are Florida State graduates and close friends with passions for outdoor adventure and exploration. As an energetic and motivated individual, Sneak is always looking to spread environmental awareness. One of Sneak’s greatest accomplishments was working as an outdoor educator in Tallahassee, Florida, where she spent her time teaching today’s youth the importance of sustainability for future generations.  Coco is enthusiastic about regenerative agriculture and plant medicine, and is proud to have worked in Oregon & Michigan on small organic farms. 

After graduating, Coco moved to Oregon and explored new territory through hiking, snowboarding and farming. Meanwhile, Sneak completed a LASH (long-@#$ section hike) from New Hampshire down to Virginia, and has made the decision to thru-hike in the coming years. Thankful to be reunited, Coco and Sneak are delighted and honored to be given the chance to return some of the kindness they have found along the trail as this year’s caretakers!
