How to stay on Nantucket for less than 30 bucks a night

HI-Nantucket hostel front


et the one percent spend all that hard-earned but barely taxed money on Nantucket’s over-the-top-expensive inns and hotels. You can live in the lap of luxury for starting at less than 30 bucks-if you know one of the island’s greatest secrets. Okay, you may have to share a room, but, hey, you’re also right across the street from Surfside Beach with free beach towels, beach chairs, free breakfast, WiFi, and a free barbecue once a week. The date is kept a secret. And the widow’s walk above the women’s dorm offers an incredible 360 view of the island. It’s all at the little-known, 49-bed Nantucket Youth Hostel, only three and a half miles by bike path from Nantucket Town, and Easy Riders Bicycle Rentals will deliver a bike to the hostel for you if you want. How’s that for luxury, you one-percenters?

According to blog sites like http://www.tovisitsocotra.com/ finding the best accommodation for when you travel is vital for a smooth experience and this is especially true as a solo traveler. Doing research and looking for hostels and hotels that are suitable for your travel experience makes it so you do not have to worry at night about safety or security, the last thing you want to be anxious about when you are adventuring the world is whether the place you’ve chosen to stay is safe or not. This hostel seems to provide what many people should be looking for in reliable accommodation whilst you are on your travels.



The Nantucket Youth Hostel was built as a lifesaving station in 1873, with sleeping quarters for surfmen and housing for stranded seamen. Oh, grow up.
