This place is on a quiet little street but still an easy walk to the falls, casino and many other activities. Patrick the owner is super friendly and helpful at helping you decide what to do with your day. Besides going to the falls, I enjoyed a nice walk along the river trails and gorge at Niagara on the Lake.... More

This hostel is located off of the main street and is completely accessible for those without a car! I stayed at this hostel over 2 years ago but I've been meaning to review it for quite some time. 1) Went with my partner for a romantic-y getaway. We originally booked a private room with one bed but were questioned about... More

I visited this hostel with my brother many years ago (2008), and I still remember how pleasant my short stay way at this hostel. The owners, his name was Patrick, informed us of the Scenic route to the city of Toronto. He described the route by drawing it on a napkin that I still have it. So worth it!!! Thanks... More

I must first start off with an apology. Patrick, you were right, we should have stayed more than one night. As my brother pointed out to you (and me) several times, it was all my fault. On approach, the building doesn't look the most attractive, but that is where the negatives stop. We were quickly checked in by Shelly who... More

First and foremost, the things that matter most in a hostel can be found at ACBB; extremely helpful and informative staff, a sense of community among all the backpackers, very close to all major attractions, and a safe and welcoming environment. Patrick and Shelly are great; Shelly even gave me a grocery bag full of muffins and fruit for the... More

When I visited, Nathan, the owner, was the coolest guy ever. He had tons of non-falls things to do while in town. He actually gave me a bike ride to Niagara On the Lake to the Angel Inn (oldest pub in Canada) with tons of stuff on the way to do and see! It was the best part of my... More

This hostel has a very good and safe location in Niagara Falls. It's only a few minutes walk to get to the Clifton Hill where you find all restaurants and attractions. This place is under renovation, which is why they lack of electricity and WIFI. They have set up a few plugs outside the bathroom that are available a couple... More

Great place to stay in Niagra Falls. Affordable, clean, and friendly owners. Walking distance to everything. We took all of Patrick's advice and enjoyed ourselves off the beaten path in Niagra. If you are looking for a simple place to sleep and a personal interaction with locals, this is the place to stay.

This is my second time I have bee in to Niagara Falls area. Both of my trips have been great but different, the first time my wife and me arrived to a luxury hotel next to the horseshoe falls. Amazing experience but not the real Niagara. The second time I decided to go by myself, for one full week before... More

We recently stayed and we really enjoyed the place. It is a short walk (about 10 minutes) from the falls, and not more than 5 minutes to most bars and restaurants. Patrick is really helpful and provided us with good information and advice about all the places we had to visit and what to steer clear from. Shelly even made... More
