Got a snooty attitude from staff member Julia.

Been coming here for nearly 8 years, but this year I was a bit disappointed. Bathrooms were not clean & while the design is new I don't think it's efficient at all. If you're using a shower then the toliet is taken & the sink, so you can't split the functions to get through any line. The watered down dish soap is gross - doesn't feel like things are getting clean. The top bunk beds feel unstable. And while I love that alcohol is now allowed - there's definitely some who abuse the privilege.


Loved this place ! Perfect beach gateway .


A beautiful building and interesting place to stay. A tricky and not particularly pleasant walk from Nantucket town (now I see why people cycle, taxi or get the bus). The hostel is right by a beautiful beach and has excellent facilities and full kitchen. All very nice. Does seem to be a prevalence of large groups so perhaps not so great for solo travellers. But otherwise a really nice place to stay. Thanks.


Great location, very helpful and friendly staff, nice and clean and thanks for letting us use the boogie boards, had a blast!


The place was charming, the staff was fantastic, very friendly and helpful. The place is away from town, but there is bus service and it is a decent bike ride. The beach that is close by is amazing and far less crowded than the ones near town.
