The Space

Highlands Hostel is located in Cape North, Cape Breton. This is your perfect base camp to explore the east, west, and north sections of the island— it is a very short drive to the National Park. 

The hostel is a converted church and just may be the most fun space ever built. There's a disco bell tower. There are bunkbeds. There's a drum set in the attic. There's a chicken coop right outside.

Owner, Bricin, is currently converting the upstairs to a longboarding museum: The Church of Skatin'

The hostel has 25 beds and loads of private bathrooms. Book your room today!

The Family

Bricin and Patricia moved themselves and their two children from BC to Cape North in a converted bus (with like ten bunkbeds???) which now can be used to party if you're staying up past quiet hours— check it out under the 'SPEAKERS' section on their Instagram.

The family couldn't be more welcoming— Bricin will keep you entertained with stories for hours. 

(This is not paid advertising, DOS is actually just in love with these people and this place).
