Vacationing on the Cape (that is Cape Cod,  Massachusetts for the unfamiliar) has become so expensive, most travelers opt out unless they’re lucky enough to have an in at a friends summer cottage.

But there are budget friendly accommodations abound, including a new Hostel that’s cropped up in Hyannis.  The Angeline Crocker Hinckley Hostel is the newest addition to the Hostelling Internationa-USA family, and will be celebrating with a ribbon cutting ceremony on thursday, June 12th at Noon.

The Angeline will be the Cape’s first hostel in almost 26 years,  joining the companies other locations in Truro, Eastham, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. Located on Ocean Street, the Hyannis Hostel will stretches across four buildings on a ½ acre plot located across from the Hyannis ferry docks, steps to the free Hyannis trolley shuttle, less than a mile to the Hyannis bus station and in easy walking distance to museums, main street shops, beaches and other local historical, recreational and cultural attractions. So you’re smack dab in the middle of that Hyannis pulse!

Named after the mother of HI-USA supporter and life-long Cape Cod resident Ruth Rusher, the new facility will feature 44 beds across the four buildings.  The main building is a historic Sears, Roebuck kit house, circa 1910.  Extensive renovations were made not only to meet commercial safety codes and HI-USA national quality standards, but to improve environmental sustainability as well.

Better yet, there’s also private rooms, and the Angeline can also accommodate families. Check out their website for more details,
