We stayed here from July 22 to the 24, and had a great time. We rented a private room for 2, which had a fan in the window, bunk beds, and a little nightstand. The rooms were small, but we were really only there to change and sleep, so they did the trick. The beds aren't super comfortable, but they work just fine.
The staff was great, and very helpful. You can buy food or bus passes at the front desk. While far away from the beaches/tourist attractions, there is a bus stop literally across the street. We had also rented bikes for our stay in Martha's Vineyard, and it's about an hour ride to get to a beach.
We didn't use the kitchen to cook, but we did partake in the delicious pancakes they offered every morning. They also have tea and coffee available. There was a great common room with a lot of books and a free computer.
I definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to go to Martha's Vineyard and save some money. It has everything you need for a great stay. We're already thinking of staying here next year!

- World class beaches, biking trails, art galleries, and a variety of preservation lands are among the island's many attractions. Favorite destinations include the Aquinnah Clay Cliffs, Chappaquiddick Island, the Menemsha Fishing Village, and the Gingerbread houses of Oak Bluffs. Famous for its beauty and diverse geographical landscape, visitors to the Vineyard quickly become enchanted by "the land beyond the sea beyond the land." Centrally locate on the isle of Cape Cod, our hostel remains in the 1950's architectural style it was constructed in, as the country's first youth hostel, over four decades ago. This is in keeping with the quiet, traditional atmosphere on the island. Attractions include local crafts and galleries but the real magic of Cape Cod lies in it's relaxing ambience.
