Here’s what Shashwat wrote

Highlands Hostels was one of the best hostels I've ever been to! The place was very homey, clean and enjoyable. Felt very safe being here despite COVID times cause of safe measures considered by the hosts. Bricin, Patricia and the kids were very warm and welcoming. Bricin provided some great suggestions to explore the Cabot Trail during the day and jammed some great music at the night time! Came here in a group of 5 friends, everyone loved the place, ended up staying couple extra days and will surely come back again!
