We were 2 families together, totalling 12 people, and we could take advantage of the whole 3 rooms of the main building. So we'd almost enjoy the privacy of the 2 kitchens, the whole dining room, etc. We booked for 1 night but we finally stayed 2 nights since it was so affordable and fitting our needs.
On the way there we had a chance to see a moose and even a black bear (hanging in a tree, on the right side of the road) and during our stay we've seen another 6 mooses, including one that we had a chance to see very long, kind of hiking along with him, while we were up the skyline trail, half way between the hostel and Cheticamp.
The small harbour, hosting Captain's Mark boat (and others) is in a walking distance, which was the primary purpose of our trip and the main reason for us to choose this accomodation.
And by the way, the hostess Pam was really nice, dedicated, available and willing to help : thumbs up and thank you again !
