I am flexible when I travel, and I am not to the point of needing 5 Star accomodations. Never in the places I stay, usually, for long, anyway. Love this place! Yummy pancakes in A.M., brewed coffee, served with love by the charming Danielle, comfy and clean beds and showers, the downstairs women's baths sporting Impressionist paintings (sorta) made by local children. Who needs the Ritz?
Innkeeper Donny and hubby provide a welcoming reception bar none and are fonts of info about the Island. Bus stop right across the street to take you wherever you wish, more or less.
Feel immediately at home here, although I have only a night or two before my fishing boat returns to Montauk. Still, I feel as if I have family on this lovely Island once I walk in the door of this woodsy outpost. Always something to read at the voluminous lending library in the lounge area; fireplace, also, though I don't know if it works...

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.
