We stayed at this hostel last summer, last minute, because it was possibly the last room available on the island. The only vacant space at the hostel was the private room. So I can't rate the rest of the facility like the dorm rooms, which...More

This appears to be the only affordable place on the island. Luckily it's right on the bus route, otherwise it's a bit out of the way. I'd definitely recommend getting a day bus pass to explore the island. The pancakes in the morning are great!...More

Stayed here for one weekend night with my family. A great deal. Affordable. Clean. Spacious. Very accessible. Free breakfast. I highly recommend this over the expensive motels on the island. Staff was very friendly. Donnie does a great job. Robert P.

About
Description
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 ...More 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. The Island of Martha's Vineyard has long been a favorite destination for exploration and recreation. World class beaches, biking trails, art galleries, and a variety of preservation lands are among the island's many attractions.
