This was really an amazing place! Right by the waterfront, the serene environment, the friendly atmosphere which makes you feel wanted and the awesome staff. I have stayed in numerous hostels throughout North America and Europe, and could positively say that this ranked as one of the best experiences I ever had. And there is so much to do in that area. The Cabot trail, hiking, water sports, splendid cuisine or just setting back and enjoying the glow of the sun--you take your pick.
Recommended for sure. And as other reviewers have mentioned, Carmen is a super host.
