Easy to get to, hard to leave! Come visit our quiet oasis in the backpacking jungle.
It is not hard to see why TV shows like Haven, Stone Cold, and movies like Moby Dick, Dolores Claiborne, Amelia Earhart, and Candles on Bay St were filmed here.
Less than 20 minutes
away is Hirtle's Beach, a surfers' favorite for its rugged natural beauty,
and at the end of the beach is the popular Gaff Point Hiking Trail. To get
there you pass The Ovens Sea Caves and the popular Sand Dollar Beach where
you can often find sand dollars at low tide. We have two very scenic
waterfalls a short drive away -- one has a great swimming hole to cool off in on
warm summers days.
We have three sailing companies nearby, one will take a group for five hours stopping on an island for lunch, for less than $200. There is also shark diving and fishing trips nearby, or you could always choose to relax on a boat trip around some of the 365 Islands in Mahone Bay or visit a mussel farm where you can buy fresh mussels & cook them back in the hostel. We are an hour from Halifax, Peggy's Cove, or the Annapolis Valley.
Free Wi-Fi, free computer use, No TV, BBQ, lobster pot for the popular lobster boil, linens provided .. PLEASE note: absolutely NO personal bedding (pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, sheets, etc.) ever, under any circumstances!!!!

The last time I managed to
find time to
Nova Scotia hostels are not hard to find! Hostels in Halifax are often full, and our hostel is close to Halifax NS. Not all Halifax hostels are in the city - and our backpacker hostel in Lunenburg & Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia can be rented like a cottage! New in 2011, you can rent the whole cottage which sleeps up to 11 people. It's close to both Mahone Bay and Lunenburg, as well as plenty of beaches, trails, museums, art galleries, shops and more. Nova Scotia hostels are the way to go, and Lunenburg Hostels are hard to find. Cheapest accommodation in Lunenburg is much more than our hostel, as is the cheapest motel in Mahone Bay. Our Nova Scotia backpackers is close to Halifax and to walk from our hostel to Mahone Bay takes only 30 minutes. Walking from our hostel to Lunenburg takes longer, but Kip & Kaboodle hostel in Mahone Bay/Lunenburg is close to both.
