This is a spotless, comfortable and welcoming place. The owners are fabulous hosts and have great knowledge of the local area and attractions. Breakfast was laidback and we enjoyed conversation with people from all over the world. Check this place out.

Spent a night at this hostel in Digby and wished we could have stayed longer. The hosts were lovely, ready for a chat at the breakfast or dinner table and very welcoming. It really feels like you're spending the night in a friend's home. The whole house was very clean and welcoming. The beds were comfortable and we even had... More

Lovely visit to Digby Backpackers Inn. The house is lovely and very clean. Great location as well for walking to restaurants. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again, I enjoyed the books and magazines available for the evening's entertainment. An especially nice point is that it was a hot day when we arrived and the hosts... More

Stayed a couple of nights at this hostel accommodation. Arrived by bicycle and the owners were accommodating to store the bicycle. The Inn is very clean, the owner-couple very friendly and helpful. The Inn has an 'at home' feel, the location only a short walk from main street, shops, eateries and the waterfront, and the location very quiet IMHO. Being... More

The hostel is well located just a couple of streets up from the waterfront. It feels a bit like you are staying in someones home because you are. Very clean and dorm rooms are very spacious. Breakfast is included.

My family is originally from Cape Breton on one side and Shediac on the other, so the maritimes are in my blood... Decided to explore a few years ago and stayed at the Digby Inn. Loved it so much, it's my one stop every time I go down. My son and I are avid used book hunters, and there is... More

Whenever I go to the maritimes (1-2 times a year) this is the only place I stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Everything is very clean. They even have a no sleeping bag policy, so are one of the few to avoid the bed-bug plague. Everything you need is within walking distance. The grounds are massive, with lots of... More

This home is clean and appears at first a good place but after a couple nights I felt as if I was imposing. To start with I was charges 10. more a night then I expected to pay as their program did not calculate the hst and I was told that I would have to pay the difference regardless of... More

Saskia80, Owner at Digby Backpackers Inn, responded to this review

I can not help but read this review and feel like I need to clarify/correct some erroneous statements. The “extra” $10 per night that this reviewer mentioned as not being aware of: we mention clearly that all rates quoted exclude HST, both on our website as well as throughout the online booking process that this guest used. This is not... More

Come and enjoy the great atmosphere, Digby scallops, clean rooms, comfy beds, very friendly owners and the great staff. It's my fourth stay (2010, 11, 12, 14) here at the Digby Backpackers Inn, currently staying here for another few days. I keep extending. :-) There are great things to do around Digby, especially whale watching in Tiverton, great hiking trails... More

On the last weekend of my stay in Nova Scotia I decided to go to Digby to see the whales on the Bay of Fundy. I found the Inn's flyer on the Halifax visitor center and it was the perfect choice. The house is really nice, aside from the private rooms and the dorm rooms (which I stayed in) it... More
