Welcome to our hostel

Seasonal hostel: Open May 18 - Oct 6, 2018

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.

Extremely clean including the bathrooms. Beds very comfortable, ample blankets etc. Kitchen area well equipped and dining are very comfortable. Great access to ferries and downtown but could be noisy I imagine during busy season. Breakfast was light fare and included healthy yoghurt and granola (Trader Joe’s) - not the overly processed kind. Off street parking and bike racks. Staff were very friendly and the place was relaxing to be in

The staff was fantastic. The location is awesome. Free downtown trolley outside the hostel - in season. Beach chairs and beach towels were available too. You can’t go wrong here.
