I stayed here for a night when I was passing through Winnipeg at the real end of the travellers' season. In fact the hostel was closed for the season, but ... A quiet location (it was December) and there was street parking available. The location was great for me as I had a medical appointment at the local hospital the... More

I started hosteling in 1977 in rural Ireland, a time when everything was worn yet comforting. So it is at Winnipeg's Guest House International, not a place for modern amenities as much as a refuge from them. This hostel is for individuals who crave an atmosphere dominated by simplicity, humility, and the brother/sisterhood of shared space, random conversations, and simple... More

I picked this location because it was the highest rated hostel on the site. That is a mistake. First, this hostel is located in a bad section of town. While that ordinarily would not stop me, there is government (or council) flats right across the street. The closest beer store is in the back of a hotel and it is... More

The Guest House is a short walk from the downtown and the edge of the residential area of Wolseley. Many new trendy restaurants and pubs are a short walk away on Sherbrook. There is a Liquor Store a short walk away. We have no connection to the Sherbrook Hotel. The smoke and heat detectors are inspected annually. Nearly all wiring... More

The staff are really friendly and eager to help you in various situations such as directions, attractions and even offers to... More

I stayed at Guesthouse in Winnipeg in early June of 2014. Really liked the accommodation. The place is rustic looking with rich wood walls and floors with all the modern conveniences of wifi, cable tv and free internet. Plenty of good quality bathrooms and showers and a fully equipped Kitchen. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Games room in the... More

I was there for one night. The rooms were spacious but no frills. Overall it was very adequate and the owner was nice. However, a few updates would go a long long way. The bathrooms and showers need a lot of work.

It is a old house within walking distance from the train station (30 mins) or a bus outside of the station would take you there. The owner is helpful, the bedsheets are clean. There is stella's café right acoss the street! Have breakfast or brunch there before you go see the city!
