I came into the place after a cold, windy, rainy drive only to find the dorm room really well heated. The dorm bed was of a very nice quality and very comfortable, and the layout was spacious; I felt like I could sleep there for a while. The interior of the house/hostel was spacious and very clean with hardwood floor, and nicely laid out and look very comfortable. The staff was very nice and friendly, and the owner was very helpful in giving me info about the local trails and what to expect going to the lighthouse. I was also happy to find out that they had good wifi connection! Nicely done!
Thank S1018

Skerwink Hostel was really beautiful-- i toured the hostel and the bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen and living room were just gorgeous! It was obvious that a lot of care was put into the decor of the hostel -it was functional, clean, comfortable, and very lovely :) The Skerwink Trail and Port Rexton Brewery were a very short walk from hostel. The breakfast was great and I really like the big table -facilitating the socializing of many guests. The hostel was very easy to get to-a short shuttle ride from St. John`s (it runs daily-no car rental necessary!)

This was a perfect spot to stay in Port Rexton if you're not looking to spend tons of money. We decided to camp because we enjoy the tent life. They have some places to pitch your tent on the hill behind the hostel, and you can use all the hostel amenities as well (kitchen, shower, etc). The staff and volunteers were very helpful and great to chat with! This is a chill hostel meant for people of all ages, they suggest party goers head to the brewery. It is about a 5 minute walk to the Skirwink Trail and about 15 or 20 min walk to the brewery. Next time we visit Port Rexton we will be staying here again.

The place is beautiful and so close to the Skerwink trail. The staff were wonderful, friendly and even in the face of a challenge did absolutely everything to accommodate the guest staying there. People were friendly and just wonderful.

I stayed here for 2 nights, camping out on the hillside behind the hostel with a gorgeous view. The first time I've seen that included as one of the options instead of a room. Great facilities like very clean and big showers, big common or better said living room, very kind owners who told us a lot about the place and we had a great 'family' supper with many of the other hostel guests. Would certainly stay again!
Thank Siebrenkuipers
