This is one of the best hostels I have been in: very friendly staff, warm atmosphere, cosy and charming rooms and awesome pancakes at breakfast in the morning. The communal area is very nice too.
The only annoying bit is the location, as you have to either take the bus or ride a bike to go anywhere on the island (which can be annoying if you want to go to busier areas in the evening to have a drink/dinner). However the experience of taking the bus is part of charm of the island, bus drivers are very friendly and will bring you where you ask them to.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.
