The Pirate Haus Inn and Hostel
Our hostel is located downtown in the historic district in a building dating from 1915 complete with wood floors and high ceilings.
We have a 8-bed co-ed dorm, and a 7 bed female dorm in addition to 5 private rooms (Pirate Room, Tree Room, Jungle Room, Map Room, and Tropical Fish Room) which can be booked at piratehaus.com. We have a rooftop patio with gas grill, common kitchen with all appliances, common room with DVD/VHS, free high speed internet on our PC's or free all you want encrypted wi-fi.
Our central location means that food and nightlife abound within a short walking distance from the hostel, as well as numerous shops and galleries. We are 1 hour away from Daytona, so if you want to see an event in Daytona (Bike Week, Daytona 500, etc.) but don't want to pay for an overpriced motel there, come stay with us, and we're two hours from the Kennedy Space Centre.
St. Augustine is America's oldest continuously inhabited city. The impressive Castillo de San Marcos has never been taken in war, though the British laid siege to it in 1702 and 1743. The area is brimming with history that comes alive during the recurring re-enactments of pirate raids and both British and Spanish night watches, and the black powder cannon firings at the fort on weekends.
The Colonial Spanish Quarter is a must see for interested students of history. The living historians there re-enact the daily life of St. Augustine in the year 1740, and Friday and Saturday evenings the sound of sea chanteys (Blow the Man Down, etc.) pervades the authentic period tavern where the lovely barmaid Gilley serves up ales and ciders.
The beach is 4 miles away, an easy bike ride, and features the undeveloped shores of Anastasia State Park. Rarely does anyone walk or bike the whole distance to the inlet so chances are that you can find a stretch of beach for your very own.
