Located at the half way point of the Cabot Trail, surrounded by the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the hostel is ideally situated for moose spotting and hiking the many trails offered in this 1000 square kilometre reserve. Walking distance to beach, shops, whale watching, restaurants, museum and harbour. Scenic views of the mountains. During the fishing season walk down to the harbour and purchase fresh lobsters or snow crab from the fishermen.

Bonjour! Je n'ai passé qu'une nuit, mais mon appréciation générale est bonne, je n'ai pu profiter des infrastructures en place à leur juste valeur...j'ai aussi séjourné aussi à HI-Wentworth et mon appréciation générale est aussi "bonne"...

Budget meal tip

There isn't much in the area, so make sure you've picked up your food before getting there.
