Clean, Friendly, Budget accommodation on the Cabot Trail, surrounded by the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The Cabot Trail Hostel is within walking distance of beaches, restaurants, whale tour boats, gift shops and the Whale Interpretive center and is an ideal place to stay while exploring the Cape Breton Highlands and surrounding area. We have both co-ed dorm rooms and private rooms. The hostel is well equipped with two kitchens, a bbq, three bathrooms as well as common areas and two newly built decks. A pleasant peaceful place to stay in Cape Breton. Hope to see you soon!!

A group of four, we stayed in one double room (a couple) and the bunk house (2 singles). Both rooms were comfortable and the hostel was equipped with the usual amenities, including a bicycle pump for one of our soft tires! A generous games selection made for a fun evening.

This hostel was a great location as a home base to explore beautiful Cape Breton. In addition to the location, the relaxed friendly atmosphere allowed for guests travelling solo to make fast friends :) Thank you to Dawn, the manager of the hostel for the great welcome and stay!

Nice hostel, glad we took this option. My friend was skeptical as we had a shared bunk room, but thoroughly happy we stayed there. Inviting and clean and easy to find and well-located. We are 39 and 42. All ages. Not a party hostel.

We stayed here while traveling the Cabot Trail and truly enjoyed our experience! The owner is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and we really enjoyed chatting with her! There is not much to do in Pleasant Bay (we came here to go Whale Watching) and there is no cell service
