Ethan Ashley has been General Manager of the HI Richmond Hostel since it opened in September 2015, right before the UCI Road World Championships came to down. He’s been hosteling for most of his life. He studied abroad in Europe and stayed in hostels in Dublin, London and France. Hosteling and working hostel guests is really a labor of love for Ethan. It’s also especially cool to see how Richmonders can get involved with the hostel and welcome guests to town.
