Hostel manager was more than kind to stay up a half hour late to greet me. Very good experience with a lovely hostel, in a terrific location. They should get more visitors out there if they could have some more publicity for the place---really nice!

Had an excellent time talking with the host and his guests. He was very helpful and informative. Learned several new things and just had an interesting conversation.

Perfect in every way. I think Tibbetts Point must be the most beautiful spot on the seaway. The hostel is super clean and the inn keeper is so welcoming. If u want to look out at the big ships, see the sunset and fall asleep with a cool breeze and the sound of the waves hitting the rocky shore, then this is the place for you. This is my first time in a hostel and I would come back in a New York minute.
