THE HOSTEL YOU MUST VISIT FOR A GETAWAY IN MAGOG
Were you, once upon a time, this young traveler looking for youth hostels? If you've put this accommodation option aside because you now have a family, it's time to clean up your backpack and buy some for the kids, as booking hostels for the family is a great way to save money, and to meet other travelers.
It was during the Christmas holidays that we discovered the Magog-Orford Youth Hostel in the heart of the Eastern Townships in a charming historic building on Merry Street in Magog. A youth hostel fully adapted to families.
True to the concept of youth hostel it offers several very economical accommodation options. The classic dorms are certainly not my cup of tea but fortunately the Auberge jeunesse Magog-Orford has family rooms that fully catered to our needs at a much lower cost than a hotel stay.
In addition to being affordable the hostel is located in a busy city. Magog at the foot of Mount Orford and close to Owls Head is a perfect destination for skiers, outdoor enthusiasts, foodies. It also offers great shopping and events.
This place is not just about rooms and services. You, my readers that are enthusiastic campers, more than any type of traveler, will appreciate the concept and atmosphere at the Magog-Orford Youth Hostel. Travelers meet in the common room to discuss or play board games. You can prepare meals in the charming community kitchen and get to know other travelers from all over the world. The children will love playing hide and seek in the labyrinths of the old presbytery with their new friends and create memories.
My favorite part of the hostel; Café les Estries. For the atmosphere ... just for the atmosphere. But the coffee was also excellent!
Have a look at the hostel's website for more details on accommodation types. The hostel hosts can tailor packages to suit your interests and needs. To give you an idea, a family package including ski tickets, may cost as little as $ 450 for the weekend. With the possibility to cook your meals, you will agree that this is an economical way of travelling. As Spring Break approaches, Auberge Jeunesse Magog-Orford is a must for a family getaway.
