We have decided to remain closed for the remainder of 2020. The concept of shared space and shared experiences does not easily coincide with the current COVID-19 emergency. We are looking into various ways to manage the hostel space in the future and will keep you informed. Please visit our site again and stay safe. For further inquiries, please call us at 887 997 4392 or email us at info@aubergeinn.ca


We are a cozy international hostel situated in the heart of the village of Providence Bay on the largest freshwater island in the world ~ Manitoulin!

Why rent a room when you can rent a whole house – including full kitchen privileges? A hostel in a unique style of accommodation that runs on the principal of shared space.

We are taking year-round reservations for 2018. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this part of Canada’s Great Lakes!

The Auberge Inn Hostel is situated 400 steps (we actually counted) from the longest sand beach and 1 km boardwalk on Manitoulin Island.

Guest Reviews

The Auberge Inn is a very comfortable little cosy hostel on the island of Manitoulin. It is has a very familiar feeling to it and the hosts are very personal and friendly. The price is fair and the service is excellent. The surroundings are also very good. An inspiring nature with many trails, hiking, riding, canoeing activities. I warmly recommend this hostel!
A beautiful little hostelFalhbin, Sweden
J'ai passé une semaine incroyable dans cette auberge si chaleureuse que je n'avais plus envie de partir. C'est un endroit qui a beaucoup de caractère, très propre et on y est tout de suite à son aise. La décoration est très sympa, les chambres et la salle de bain offrent tout le confort dont on a besoin et les hôtes, sont des personnes formidables, qui m'ont permis de passer un excellent séjour.
“Délicieuse Auberge Inn”Romain, France
I recently had the pleasure to stay at Auberge Inn in Providence Bay while on a solo vacation. I had never stayed at a hostel before and Auberge Inn meet all my expectations. I truly felt like a home away from home. I would recommend Auberge Inn to anyone and hope to come back soon! Stayed August 2013, travelled solo
