    This is a great escape for couples, families or solo travellers. Book in advance to ensure you have a bed. You can see the ocean right from the dining room – a great view to wake up to! We would definitely stay here again.

    My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay at the beach house hostel ! It's a spacious place with a gorgeous view onto the sea and we spent our days biking along the rail trail and swimming the many beaches around. The owner, Michelle, was a wonderful host, we can't wait to get back there!

    The location was fabulous! Great views and easy access to the many beaches along the way. Also, the TransCanadian bike path is an added plus located behind the property! I'd recommend bringing bikes to take advantage of it. Owner is fabulous! Great conversations with her and other travelers staying at the beach house. The house is being renovated so kitchen is in transition. Other than that, it's a quiet place to recoup if you've been camping for long stretches.

    I love the concept of having budget accommodations outside the city centre, near areas you can swim and get away. I stayed in the private room with my boyfriend for only one night but I found the place very affordable, welcoming and I slept really well. The building and grounds themselves could use some love.

    Overall, the beach house was a cool place to stay at and Elena did a great job of helping guests get settled and ensuring everyone was looked after. The hostel is on a well system so there was periodic shortages in water, Elena did her best to ensure everyone had adequate supply of water. Beach house could use some renovations and upgrades as well as regular maintenance/up keep. There were cob webs everywhere.

    The location is a bitfar from Halifax but on the plus it was right across from the ocean. The host is welcoming and gives info on the area. Free laundry. The place is having work done (water stopped momentarily and when it came back on it was yellow.) There is a fair bit of creepy crawlers of various varieties.

    Potential, would be my one word answer. The property looks like it is under development. It has a nice location and accommodations, and just some small additions would make it perfect. There is no snow on site staff so nobody watching the door so to speak. The bathroom is fine but it's a little problematic because there are no shells for soap and shampoo in the shower. There are no locks on the bedroom doors. The property was somewhat unkempt with long grass and tons of spiders, and debris.

    We arrived at 8PM as expected and no staff was present. There was a three sentence note stating our reservation and which room we were staying in, with keys. We went out and returned at 10:30PM and still no evidence of any staff. We left at 7 AM and never saw anyone who was responsible for the business. It was a very strange feeling to wander in and out and not see anyone. I felt like we should have skipped reservations and slept on the couch.
