Nantucket Hostel

Hostel Nantucket

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Known locally as Star of the Sea, HI Nantucket was built as a lifesaving station in 1873 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The lookout station, or cupola, is still accessible from the women’s dormitory, and the hostel is just minutes away from Surfside Beach and only 3.5 miles from the ferry docks and Nantucket village.

This Nantucket hostel has a fully equipped kitchen for preparing your own meals, a large dining area, outdoor picnic tables and bicycle racks. Breakfast, Wi-Fi access and parking are free. The hostel also has one of the few sand volleyball courts on the island!

From the hostel guests can take the bike path into town and check out the Whaling Museum to learn about the island's fascinating past. Explore by bicycle, inline skates, kayak, or on foot and finish your day with a seafood dinner or sunset on the beach.

Would prefer communal bathroom facilities for females. The single bathrooms create a bottleneck as there are only three.

Hostel is very clean well managed welcoming spiritually renewing. Janice & David are highly inspiring & effective managers. Sassy David Luke Joe are warm welcoming hardworking team members. Together the managers & team members create a magical experience for the guests. Guests leave the Hostel refreshed & rejuvenated. Historic building on the beach & on the Shuttle always has a cool breeze. Staff knows best places to go in town and around the Country. This Hostel is a treasure!
