Spent a night at this hostel in Digby and wished we could have stayed longer. The hosts were lovely, ready for a chat at the breakfast or dinner table and very welcoming. It really feels like you're spending the night in a friend's home. The whole house was very clean and welcoming. The beds were comfortable and we even had...

Lovely visit to Digby Backpackers Inn. The house is lovely and very clean. Great location as well for walking to restaurants. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again, I enjoyed the books and magazines available for the evening's entertainment. An especially nice point is that it was a hot day when we arrived and the hosts...

Stayed a couple of nights at this hostel accommodation. Arrived by bicycle and the owners were accommodating to store the bicycle. The Inn is very clean, the owner-couple very friendly and helpful. The Inn has an 'at home' feel, the location only a short walk from main street, shops, eateries and the waterfront, and the location very quiet IMHO. Being...

The hostel is well located just a couple of streets up from the waterfront. It feels a bit like you are staying in someones home because you are. Very clean and dorm rooms are very spacious. Breakfast is included.

My family is originally from Cape Breton on one side and Shediac on the other, so the maritimes are in my blood... Decided to explore a few years ago and stayed at the Digby Inn. Loved it so much, it's my one stop every time I go down. My son and I are avid used book hunters, and there is...

Whenever I go to the maritimes (1-2 times a year) this is the only place I stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Everything is very clean. They even have a no sleeping bag policy, so are one of the few to avoid the bed-bug plague. Everything you need is within walking distance. The grounds are massive, with lots of...

This home is clean and appears at first a good place but after a couple nights I felt as if I was imposing. To start with I was charges 10. more a night then I expected to pay as their program did not calculate the hst and I was told that I would have to pay the difference regardless of...

Saskia80, Owner at Digby Backpackers Inn, responded to this review

I can not help but read this review and feel like I need to clarify/correct some erroneous statements. The “extra” $10 per night that this reviewer mentioned as not being aware of: we mention clearly that all rates quoted exclude HST, both on our website as well as throughout the online booking process that this guest used. This is not...

Come and enjoy the great atmosphere, Digby scallops, clean rooms, comfy beds, very friendly owners and the great staff. It's my fourth stay (2010, 11, 12, 14) here at the Digby Backpackers Inn, currently staying here for another few days. I keep extending. :-) There are great things to do around Digby, especially whale watching in Tiverton, great hiking trails...

On the last weekend of my stay in Nova Scotia I decided to go to Digby to see the whales on the Bay of Fundy. I found the Inn's flyer on the Halifax visitor center and it was the perfect choice. The house is really nice, aside from the private rooms and the dorm rooms (which I stayed in) it...

I had never tried a hostel, and am not generally a B&B person - this place changed my mind!! Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful accommodations, close to everything and the greatest hosts. The rooms were clean, there was both indoor and outdoor space to enjoy. Even in my own home, my shower isn't as good as theirs!! I will visit again as...
