The owners live beside this hostel and their interactions with volunteer staff and guests show that they care about their business. Standards of cleanliness are high, the room we had reminded me of my grandmother's place. We had a complimentary breakfast (my wife even had her special diet needs met!).

This is my favourite hostel in Nfld - super beautiful and very friendly owner. Conveniently located right beside the Skerwink Trail. Includes breakfast, which is unusual in Nfld. Two small dorms, two privates and two semi-privates. Gorgeous common area and kitchen, with bbq in the backyard and a fire pit. Highly recommended!

Nice hostel. very clean. only one bathroom on each floor though. But it seamed to be enough. The kitchen is very well furnished and very clean. Light breakfast offered each day: bread and jams. The Skerwink trail is a 2 min drive down the road.

My friend and I are older travellers and we enjoyed this hostel because of the friendly staff, the cleanliness, the location (very close to the Skerwink Trail), and, of course, the price. The hostel is fairly close to Trinity which is a stunningly beautiful and aimed at tourists-- shops, theatre, pubs.

My husband & I stayed here for two nights.

We thoroughly loved our stay at the Skerwink Hostel. What a lovely little spot. It is basic, incredibly clean and one of the most welcoming places I have ever stayed. It is so close to the Skerwink trail that we were able to check out the trail several times. They have dorm rooms and private rooms. I would definitely recommend... More

We had a great stay at the Skerwink Hostel!! Martha and Gavin are excellent hosts, they created a warm and welcome environment. The hostel is very clean and well kept. Breakfast is delicious. The location can't be beat, you are literally steps away from the amazing Skerwink Trail. Thank you Martha and Gavin!

We are a cozy family hostel within close walking distance to beautiful award winning coastal trails. Your hosts are Martha and Gavin, a young couple who have built a home in rural Newfoundland. We know that feeling of being in a hostel for two minutes and already feeling as though you'd been there your entire life. The Skerwink Hostel is a chill, familiar, and friendly place with lots of hang out areas and communal spaces. ... more   less
