I love it!
For a Cape Cod hostel, it is the most cosmopolitan.
I always get to talk to cool people from all over that are friendly and get great ideas on what to see in the area I had not heard of. It is a typical hostel amenities like food storage, breakfast, a bed with sheets and bathrooms. I like that once I check in, I can come and go as I please.
Ridiculous people who cannot comply with check in times are hard to listen to. I have been late to a bunch of these and called ahead of being late to tell them I had an issue and had zero problems. I think so far I have stayed in 2 of three of the buildings.
I love hiking, biking and going to museums during the day and going to the beaches after 5 pm when they are free.
This hostel is in walking distance to Hyline Sport Fishing, a museum, ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, and a bunch of beaches. You can even have a bonfire on the weekend.
Poor customer service!
We booked the family cottage at this joke of a place for our family to stay on Saturday night. After getting stuck in 5 hours of traffic with poor phone signal we arrived after the office was closed. There was no other place for us to stay with our two children and we had to sleep in our rental car on the side of the road. We still got charged for the room because they said we didn't show up. No where on the reservation did it indicate that you could not check in after office hours. It specifically said check in after 16:00 but not before a closing time. The conditions of the booking also never indicated that late arrival was not an option. In my dealings with other small places to stay, they leave a phone number or instructions on how to check in after hours. How pathetic that they are so desperate for money that they would charge a family because of conditions that were out of our control. I would never recommend this place to any, especially a family! Poor customer service!
HI-Hyannis is the perfect hostel for a relaxing getaway on beautiful Cape Cod. The hostel has a great atmosphere and staff, with large spacious rooms and plenty of common facilities. Keep in mind that this is an HI Hostel, so there is a no-alcohol policy.
The hostel is very easy to find -- located only five minutes' walk from Main Street and about ten minutes' walk from the Hyannis Bus Terminal. The ferries for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are located across the road at the pier. There are also beaches within twenty minutes' walk from the hostel -- or you can hire bicycles from the hostel. There is a Trader Joe's about a mile away and plenty of restaurants and pubs on Main Street. If you have a car, there is plenty of parking, too.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The rooms and bathrooms are very large compared to other hostels and exceptionally clean. There are lockers in the room and each one of the buildings is secured by a code so there is no need for room keys. The dorms range from private rooms to four-person dorms. There is a bathroom on each floor of each building -- they are well equipped with hairdryers, plenty of hooks/shelves, and a nice warm shower.
There are a variety of common spaces at the hostel with three outdoor settings -- one with a camp fire. Inside the main house, there is a large kitchen with a large variety of pots, pans, and utensils with a large oven and cooktop. Whilst we were there, a lady made apple and rhubarb pies -- so you can definitely cook up anything you like in there! Inside the main house there is also a large lounge room (with free tea and coffee all day and books), a front room with seating, and the reception. The hostel is not a party hostel by any means, but is filled with a variety of lovely people who all have great stories to share, giving the place a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Your stay also comes with breakfast, which is amazing and includes good quality toast, condiments, oats (porridge), granola, and yogurt. The staff are very friendly and helpful with a lot of knowledge about the Cape and how to get around. All in all we would thoroughly recommend this hostel.
