She explained everything very well and was honest with us about how transport was kind of hard and other inconveniences of the matter.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hamilton Guesthouse is Hamilton, Ontario's first and only backpackers' hostel. We opened in 2010 in a small location and in 2012 we moved to the Pring House. This beautiful limestone mansion is heritage listed and showcases wonderful 19th Century features. We are a few blocks from the heart of downtown, a very short walk, and steps away from the nearest bus stop. We are also within a few blocks of a grocery store and other markets, restaurants and a large park. Hamilton Guesthouse has four different rooms. First,our ten-bed mixed dormitory, which will cost travellers $20 per bed per night, in bunk beds in a very large room. Next, our female-only dorm, which sleeps four women in a spacious loft room, which also has a sitting room, and costs $30 per guest per night. Next, our private room, is a large and bright room with a queen-sized bed and costs $50 per night. Lastly, our family room has a semi-private double bed, and three twin beds, and costs $75 per night.The hostel has heating and air conditioning throughout, ensuring a comfortable stay. We have a back courtyard with sitting area and barbecue. Guests are free to smoke outside, as there is no smoking inside. There are two on-site parking spots, and room in our backyard for bicycle parking. We have plenty of maps and tourist guides, and our staff are always willing to help out in any way we can.We also offer the following services and features:- Full Self Catering kitchen with stove and microwave.-NO lockout or curfew- FREE wifi Internet access throughout the hostel-FREE parking (limited availability- call ahead)-FREE linens and towels provided- FREE secure lockers available to all guests (BYO padlock).- FREE tea and coffee-FREE local phone calls- Comfortable common room for guests to socialize or watch TV.-Library fully stocked with maps, travel guides, reading material. ... more   less
