“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2010

The owner of the hostel picked me up in Halifax and took me back, dropped me off in Lunenburg, toured me around Mahone Bay. So can't fault the place for friendliness and helpfulness! The owner is like an encyclopaedia of this part of Nova Scotia. Hostel rooms absolutely fine and price very good. The hostel is near hiking trails and beaches too.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2009

We had bikes, and this is a great area for biking. Mahone Bay is an easy walk away, Lunenburg is a bit longer (7km), but Trudi & Greg offer a free shuttle in the morning. It's really quiet with plenty of room inside and out, plus they have basketball, soccer, volleyball, etc. with a huge yard to play in. Greg is also a tour guide, and so he is a fantastic (free) source of information for ideas and essential sites to see for the whole of Nova Scotia. There are 3 beaches in the area, and we visited all three. Plus kayak rentals, bike rentals (if you need it), hiking trails all nearby. We highly recommend it!
