No rules, rule! ... The tone is set when you walk through the door. Your shown to your room, told to make your-self at home, and to pay on your way out. That trust set the tone for our entire trip.
The cleanest hostel I have ever stayed at! ( And I have been to many!)

Description - Hostel

Hostelling International Charlottetown!

Charmed by the Island life, two travelers have crossed the bridge and settled on a path.

Years of backpacking travel experience from both sides of the desk, culminates in the ideal small hostel to fit the ideal small island, inside the picturesque birthplace of Canada, an immaculate concept is born.

By travelers, for travelers, with travelers; join the adventure.

Affordable accommodation needs not be institutional, nor impersonal. We have invested in quality, because your hostel is also our home. Original hardwood floors, cherry banister, bay windows, modern plumbing upgrades, fresh locally baked goods included daily for breakfast in our comforting country kitchen.

The amenities of 2007, with the vibes of 77.

Relax after a day of touring on our leather sofas perhaps watching one of our 300 DVDs on our LCD TV over the fireplace. Or enjoy a beverage in the evening on our large deck, along with some fresh island produce. Just steps away is our recreation room featuring a custom made billiard table, affordable flat panel internet stations, book exchange, lounge chairs, and a stereo to plug your music into, or listen to our extensive collection of vintage vinyl.

Of course we also offer discounts with local operators, friendly accommodating and respectful staff, brand new sprinkler system for your safety and comfort, forward reservations, beverages, free parking, work for stay programs.

We have single sex as well as co-ed dormitory rooms, private and family rooms also available on a limited basis, book early.

Contact us early to reserve your space.

We have retained the character and charm of this vintage downtown home, but have upgraded for comfort, safety and ambience.

Please keep in mind there is an additional 15% sales tax that is to be paid upon arrival.

We are affliated with Hostelling International. We accept HI membership cards for discounts!

IMPORTANT! RECEPTION HOURS- 8am to 11am and 4pm to 10pm. Arrivals after this time MUST be arranged in advance.

Located on a beautiful old street just minutes from downtown and all of its attractions. Feel like reading a book or having a picnic, Hillsborough square is located right beside the hostel. Feel like watching the cruise ships dock, head down to the end of the street and inhale some of that fresh, ocean air.
