Why do people think Lunenburg is only good for a day trip? We have no idea - nor do the people who come and stay with us. The number of times people have come to us for one night and been so disappointed is uncountable. It happens every week. This part of Nova Scotia is packed with beaches, hiking trails, live music, awesome food, fantastic pubs, museums, art galleries, yoga studios, HB Studios (you know - those guys who create the games you're all playing on your devices: World Cup Soccer & Rugby, etc? yeah, them), truly local farmers markets, events .. seriously. This part of Nova Scotia is so much more than a day trip... it's the highlight of your travels.

Our hostel is small, relaxed, colourful and truly awesome. With dorm beds, private rooms, free WIFI, lobster pots, barbecues, hammocks and our firepit we have all you need .. plus a kajillion stars (shooting & stable) for mood lighting, and loons & owls for background music at night.

Free Wi-Fi, free computer use, No TV, BBQ, lobster pot for the popular lobster boil, linens provided .. PLEASE note: absolutely NO personal bedding (pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, sheets, etc.) ever, under any circumstances!!!!

Nova Scotia hostels are not hard to find! Hostels in Halifax are often full, and our hostel is close to Halifax NS. Not all Halifax hostels are in the city - and our backpacker hostel in Lunenburg & Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia can be rented like a cottage! New in 2011, you can rent the whole cottage which sleeps up to 11 people. It's close to both Mahone Bay and Lunenburg, as well as plenty of beaches, trails, museums, art galleries, shops and more. Nova Scotia hostels are the way to go, and Lunenburg Hostels are hard to find. Cheapest accommodation in Lunenburg is much more than our hostel, as is the cheapest motel in Mahone Bay. Our Nova Scotia backpackers is close to Halifax and to walk from our hostel to Mahone Bay takes only 30 minutes. Walking from our hostel to Lunenburg takes longer, but Kip & Kaboodle hostel in Mahone Bay/Lunenburg is close to both.
