Welcome to our hostel

Seasonal Hostel: Open May 18 - October 15, 2018.

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.

Seasonal Hostel: Open May 18 - October 15, 2018.

My friends and I had an awesome stay in Nantucket. We absolutely loved the hostel and will be back next year. Sassy was the best host and we enjoyed meeting so many interesting and friendly people. The location was amazing, beautiful short walk to the beach. And the outdoor showers were divine!

It is always a nice stay at the Nantucket Hostel. Friendly staff, great location right across from beautiful Surfside beach. Bathrooms are modern and clean. Good breakfast and coffee in the morning and a full size fridge for guest to keep their groceries. Hostel provides beach towels, boogie boards and chairs for guests to use. What's not to like? I will definitely be back to this great hostel!
