Martha's Vineyard Hostel

Hostel Martha's Vineyard

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

This was the first ever purpose-built hostel to pop up in America in 1955 which has been welcoming groups like yours ever since.

Made from traditional cedar-wood HI-Martha’s Vineyard was recently voted the ‘most friendly’ HI hostel in the world and you will be assured of a very warm welcome when staying here.

Popular with celebrities (John Belushi is buried here and Barack Obama is known to holiday here), this island is just seven miles from Cape Cod and has a perfect summer climate for exploring the beautiful beaches.

The hostel is located on West Tisbury Road right in the middle of the island next to the airport. It is easy to reach by car as well as by bus or by bike -- there are even signs on the bike paths. But be warned the bike ride from the hostel to the next town (Edgartown) will take you about forty minutes one way.

If you are staying at the hostel, then make the most of the free DIY pancake station in the morning. And relax with other people staying here by playing a game of volleyball on the purpose-built court. And just ask at reception about the main attractions on the island - the Aquinnah Clay Cliffs, Chappaquiddick Island, Menemsha fishing village and Oak Bluffs gingerbread houses are easily accessible.

So whatever your reason for visiting Martha’s Vineyard, you can book here safe in the knowledge that your group will receive an extremely friendly welcome!

*Please note that HI-Martha’s Vineyard is a seasonal hostel and is only open during the summer.
