This is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. It's incredibly clean with super comfy beds. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm with en suite and the shower was fantastic - excellent water pressure with great heat. Saskia and Claude are great hosts! They happily arranged my whale watching tour for me and then were happy to include... More

The Digby Backpackers Hostel offers all the charm and service of a B&B but priced as a hostel, which it is. Basic breakfast was included. The hostel is in a beautiful old home. I stayed in the 4-bed dorm which has its own modern bathroom. Claude and Saskia are very welcoming and offer helpful advice about local restaurants, sights and... More

I've stayed in many hostels throughout Europe, so I decided to give the hostels on this side of the pond a try. I'm so glad that I stayed at this hostel! From the moment we stepped into the place we were greeted with open arms, a friendly smile, and helpful advice on where to eat and tour. I was really... More

We had a lovely stay here. To be honest, it was our first time in a hostel - we would definitely do this again. The owners are very nice and welcoming. We helped them to christen their new deck and shared our 1/2 bottle of vodka with them and the other guests. How fun. The room was nice and clean.... More

One of our stops was Digby, where we went claim digging at the beach. After a though claim digging session we checked in at the Digby Backpackers where Claude and Saskia suprised us with a self cooked dinner! Every morning we got served with a good and healthy breakfast. We definately had a great time in "quiet* Digby. Claude provided... More

Saskia and Claude are super owners always available to give advice and tips on how to have a great time in Nova Scotia...was sad to leave...

Had a great stay here on the first night of my visit to Nova Scotia. Digby is a beautiful spot to visit and try some of the famous, delicious scallops. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is within walking distance of the harbour. The hostel is a very well kept historical house with chunky wooden doorframes and... More

Hi, Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! I just wanted to respond to one point, which is that the guest arriving at 2am was not a new arrival at that time at night, we do not allow new (dorm room) arrivals past midnight to ensure everyone's comfort... If we would have such a... More

We stayed in a private room, which was clean, fairly spacious and had a sea view (although could be improved with a mirror!). The owner/manager of the hostel was very friendly and provided lots of info on the local area (plus maps etc.) which was really appreciated. A simple breakfast awaited us in the morning (cereal and toast) which was... More

Hello, Thank you for your wonderful review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay! I just wanted to respond to your point with regards to the bathroom. You are correct that this is the only shared bathroom upstairs. However, there actually is a second full bathroom for guest use just behind the kitchen, as well as an ensuite bathroom in one... More

The hostel definitely lived up to the reviews I had read before: Sakia, the host, goes out of her way to help with travel info and/or bookings. And both she and Claude are always friendly and usually up to a chat in the kitchen they're sharing with their guests. The hostel is also their home which shows in the loving... More
