I had an overall decent stay. However, we had to leave early for personal reasons, and I wish we got at least part of our payment reimbursed..

You need a bicycle to get around. Nantucket is very bicycle friendly.

I visited this hostel after visiting the MV hostel. This one didn't measure up. The MV hostel is great. It has a wonderful energy and spirit that is completely lacking at Nantucket. The staff here were a bit abrasive. Things that were important (like enforcing quiet hours) did not happen, while they did enforce arbitrary rules that weren't important. The kitchen was not clean. The location, however, is spectacular.

I loved staying at the Star of the Sea. The location is amazing, right at the edge of Land Trust areas that are protected and feature beautiful walks to the ocean and through the dunes. The other people staying at the hostel were quiet at night and respectful of others privacy. The staff is friendly and welcoming. After 9/1, the bus service stops, it is really helpful to have a bike. It is a ride to local restaurants, shops and town. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and well taken care of.

Beautiful location and hostel. The website needs to be updated because I wasn't aware that the bus stopped running the 1st because the site says it ran through early September and it was a little more difficult getting around. It was relaxing, walk along the beach and enjoy beautiful sunsets. The lady who worked at the front desk definitely should improve her costumer service skills. I am definitely coming back and reccommending it to others!

The stay was great, despite that the information at the hostel was very poor, and I didn't feel like I could ask questions about recommendations of restaurants, bars, etc...
