Resupply and Snacks:

We don’t offer a full resupply, but we do offer snacks and a resupply shuttle into town. A resupply shuttle into town is $25 (split between 5 or so friends.. this is a much better option than offering a resupply here.) You can call ahead to schedule the shuttle or take the wild card and see if we are available for a shuttle when you arrive??

Cokes, Crackers, and Snacks are available in the Bunkhouse on the Honor System. 

Communal Meals:

We offer Communal meals to guests/hikers. To Learn about our Communal Meals please Click Here.


We have Satellite Internet due to being in a completely remote location. If you are familiar with Satellite Internet it can be VERY SLOW!! However, we are now able to offer very slow wifi and we have recently learned that some phones do have Bandwidth here. Verizon, AT&T, and Us Cellular are some of the providers that pick up service here.

Massage Therapy:

We Offer Massage Therapy for Hikers and Guests. Check out our Healing Arts Page.


Complementary to all Hikers & Guests. Just Ask…

Broke Hiker Jar:

What is the BROKE HIKER JAR? It’s BETTER than a tip jar. Yes, we will still accept tips.. but money that goes into this jar will be available to hikers who are on a tight budget.. and would like to have an experience at Woods Hole. By contributing to this jar, hikers experiences are enhanced at Woods Hole.. . and it’s a great way to provide Trail Magic.

Hiker Box:

Like most hostels, we also have a hiker box. For those that are not familiar, a hiker box is where hikers trade goods. One hiker’s junk, is another hikers treasure. Here you will find spare batteries, extra food, gear, and more.

Library and Book Exchange:

We do have a shelf for exchanging/taking books. We are also happy to share our eclectic resource of books.. asking that you return them to their home after enjoying, absorbing, and reading new found knowledge.

Musical Instruments:

We also have a guitar for borrowing… Hikers are welcomed and encouraged to borrow.. so that we too can benefit from a listening perspective.

Work for Stay:

On occasion, we offer Work for Stay. We do our best to resource help with our many projects. However, we make no commitments prior to your stay with us. Please inquire upon arrival. If we do not have work trade, ask about the Broke Hiker Jar. We certainly do not want money to be your reason for not experiencing Woods Hole!
