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. 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. Favorite destinations include the Aquinnah Clay Cliffs, Chappaquiddick Island, the Menemsha Fishing Village, and the Gingerbread houses of Oak Bluffs.

The HI Martha's Vineyard is a wonderful place to spend your Vineyard Summer holiday. The bedroom, kitchen, and den are sparkling clean. The bus stops at the Hostel. The Hostel staff is highly professional and helpful. The nightly rates are most reasonable.

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 are shared. None the less, I would not

"Make sure you pay attention to the bus routes and times - they are EXACTLY on time and leave to/from the hostel only once an hour. Other routes from Edgartown to Oak Bluffs run more frequently. It works out fine if you plan ahead!"
