Welcome to our hostel

Seasonal hostel: Open May 15 - September 28, 2020.

HI Hyannis is a picturesque house that provides guests with an idyllic place to relax. Only steps from downtown, the hostel’s location could not be more ideal: across the street from the Hyannis ferry docks, steps from the free Hyannis trolley shuttle, less than a mile to the Hyannis bus station and within easy walking distance to many attractions.

This Hyannis hostel offers private rooms and mixed dorms with bed linen and a bath towel included in the price. There is a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, and breakfast, Wi-Fi and parking are all free.

At HI Hyannis you don't have to go far to find the best the Cape has to offer - whether it's cruising Hyannis Harbour on an 1886 Crosby Catboat replica, exploring Lewis Bay and Nantucket Sound, kayaking, windsurfing, hitting the beach, the restaurants and nightlife on Main Street - it's all just minutes away.

Seasonal hostel: Open May 15 - September 28, 2020.

Nice, helpful staff at the HI-Hyannis hostel. The hostel is a great alternative to hostels or hotels in Boston or Falmouth, if you miss the last boat to the Vineyard. It's quieter, smaller, and less expensive than the HI hostel in Boston. It's a fairly short walk from the Hyannis Transportation Center, but I suggest taking a taxi if you have heavy luggage. I took the Plymouth and Brockton bus from Logan Airport, and then the CCRTA bus to Woods Hole, after spending the night at the hostel. The building is old, but appears to be maintained. My metal bunkbed was comfortable, if a little squeaky every time I turned. Would have preferred a comforter-style cover (more common in European hostels) rather than the blue synthetic fleece blanket provided. The complimentary breakfast was not atypical for an American hostel: cereals, instant oatmeal, toast, some fruit. Coffee, tea, and milk were available. Nice eating area and well-kept hostel kitchen. I would stay at the hostel again and recommend it to others.

Stayed here many times over years. Hostel was not as clean as usual. Reported no soap in a bathroom but it was never refilled. I brought my own towel but it was taken. In there defense the color was very similar to issued towels. This is first time staff did not make homemade granola.

Hi Diane, We are sorry your experience was not the same as in the past. Unfortunately, we are unable to make our own granola due to complex health inspection laws. We hope that you were able to find an alternative breakfast item from our selection of cereal, whole wheat toast & jams, oatmeal, bananas, coffee & teas. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing, we appreciate your feedback. Safe travels!
