We slept here for one night, the room was very cosy and neat, near to the center. The owner is AWESOME. He gave us a lot of information and direction to see the best thing in the short time we stay there. If you read this I remember "next time tree days" I'll do!!!

I was travelling across America in the summer and decided to swing by Niagara falls for a night. Patrick and the gang hosted me so well offering lots of advice on the local area that I took full advantage of - I had such an action packed day! Location and facilities are good The atmosphere created here by the owners... More

To concur with one reviewer, this place has BED BUGS. I stayed just one night on the second floor six-man dorm room, and it looked clean enough (the whole interior of the hostel was very clean actually), until i started feeling an itching sensation in my legs. I thought it was an allergic reaction to detergent, until i blew up... More

My husband and I stayed at ACBB July 4-7. We had our own room with a shared bathroom. The hostel was very clean, the bedroom was nice and the location was perfect. We were able to walk to everything around Niagara Falls and be a little but away from Clifton Hill to not have to deal with the crazy touristy... More

One of the best hostel I stayed in. Patrick was immensely helpful and very nice to interact with. Clearly a man who loves people. Guests were awesome. Room was clean. Bathroom is nicer than the one I have at home with marble wall. Staff are foreigners and are really nice and fun to chat with. I will be going back... More

Patrick is the very best inn keeper. Full of good inexpensive ideas and so helpful. Breakfast of fresh fruits and fruit filled muffins. The Hostel is right in the heart of the city and easy walk to the falls and public transportation. Great mix of the young and old to share ideas,dreams and experience in the evening overlooking the back... More

From the outside this hostel doesn't look that inviting - but the inside cannot be more different. The owner has a wealth of information on how to get the best out of your stay in Niagara and the staff are relaxed but professional. The atmosphere is very warm and you feel at home very quickly. Breakfast has lots of local... More

A little hesitate when approaching the hostel at first, but had a great stay there overall. The owner was helpful and interesting. I was pleased to see the room we stayed in was clean and tidy. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and even got the chance to go out on the town with the owner and other guests to an impressive... More

After only a one night stay here I was completely covered in bed bug bites. We are talking over 300 bites that completely ruined my weekend away. Once we realized that they were not mosquito bites from having to leave the window open(it's extremely hot in the rooms) I did a search through the room and found several bed bugs... More

I intended to stay at this hostel for 3 days but left after 1 night because I was ANNIHILATED by BED BUGS. I was covered (and still am) in literally hundreds of bites from my face to my feet. The owner was very nice about it but he claims that he has never had an issue in that room before…... More

First of all we do not lie. We handled the problem this guest had with compassion and professionalism. We do not lie about anything. That is a false accusation. There is absolutely no infestation in our building or in fact in any of our rooms or dorms. We are extremely proactive when it comes to any complaint of any type.... More
