Nantucket Hostel

Hostel Nantucket

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.

This staff was not all that friendly and I overheard some of them judging some of the guests when I was in the common room. There was a huge spider in the bathroom, and the bunkbeds felt like they were going to fall apart at any moment.

Staff asked if we had stripped our beds. We responded yes. Staff then asked the same question again. A second time we answered yes and the staff person then gave us a look like we were lying. It wasn't unpleasant just very weird. Bathrooms could have been cleaner but overall a very nice place. Also on a survey there should always be a NA catagory or I don't know. I have no idea what the environmental practices of the place were
