David says:

"A very spacious and beautiful building. host family is extremely generous and accommodating. It is kept very clean, has ample outlets, beds and washrooms for guests. its located in a very scenic valley, with great views of the local area from the historic church steeple. Within walking distance of two beaches, a local restaurant, a general store and a gas station. Price is very affordable and competitive. Highly recommend staying at this hostel for your Cabot trail adventures."
