I stayed here on 3 seperate occasions during a 6 week trip of NOva Scotia for work and leisure and absolutely loved it. Claude and Saskia are really friendly, helpful hosts and great fun.
The backpackers is in a part of Digby that is so peaceful that I slept really well all the time I was there. It is also close to the town centre with some great restaurants, and also it is near enough to walk to the food shops etc. Although during my visit we also got shown the perfect clamming beach and where to get great lobster, both of which were cooked back at the hostel-great company and great food!
It is also the perfect place from which to explore the sights of the area, Annapolis Royal is interesting, Sandy Cove beautiful, and of course a trip down through Digby Neck and Islands to go whale watching from Brier Island. I was fortunate enough to see seals, a harbour porpoise, 5 Humpbacks playing together and then a morther and baby Right Whales during my trip from Brier Island-simply Awesome.
I cant recommend The Digby Backpacker's enough, and look forward to my next visit!
