Kip & Kaboodle Mahone Bay/Lunenburg Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Small & friendly backpacker hostel located on Nova Scotia\'s popular South Shore: minutes from Mahone Bay and 7 kilometres from Lunenburg and 1 hour from Halifax. This is the place to head for a few days of peace & quiet out in the country.

The closest beach is only 1.5 kilometres away and plenty more are only drive away. There are kayak rentals nearby (we can drive you there for free) and bikes for hire on the premises. Free (scheduled) shuttles to Mahone Bay or Lunenburg. There are also endless beaches, caves, hikingtrails and foresty all just waiting for you to come discover and explore.

If you\'re looking for a strict hostel with plenty of rules & regulations, that\'s not us. We\'re all about being relaxed on your time off. So come visit us, kick back & do just that: relax. We have plenty of books for rainy days and there is always plenty to keep you busy in Mahone Bay & Lunenburg. Greg can even help you plan your trip throughout Nova Scotia as he has been provided guided tours of the province for 8 years!

If it looks like there aren\'t enough beds for your group please contact us direct and we\'ll see if we can sort you out!!!

Important Information

We aren't the fanciest hostel around -- but we are clean, comfortable and colourful! And what an awesome atmosphere!! Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and 2 shared bathrooms; downstairs is the commonroom, full kitchen and another bedroom. We don't have a tv because we don't need one (so everyone tells us), but we do have free WIFI and a computer if you don't have a laptop.
