One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Period. This hostel has a lot of personality! It's small, cosy, and clean, and the staff do a great job of fostering an easy-going, welcoming environment. The location is close to everything you could want/need in downtown Charlottetown. Great if you're flying solo or in a group, but since it was... More

Good sized hostel with the feeling of a bed and breakfast. Travellers and staff were friendly. The whole establishment really helped to build connections between travellers: free breakfast around a common kitchen table, two common rooms with plenty of entertainment options (TV, vinyl record player, pool table, lots of seating). Hostel was clean and a short walking distance from downtown... More

This hostel is basically a converted house. Breakfast is included and very social as there is just the one table in the kitchen. Plenty of on street parking and all attractions are within walking distance. As well as a tv room there is also a converted garage with a pool table and massive LP collection to spend evenings flicking through.

Currently staying at this amazing hostel. The staff were so friendly immediately upon arrival. We had a lovely tour through the home. There is a kitchen and fridge that you can use at any time. There are four showers and 3 bathrooms. There is one only female bathroom as well. There is cable and a wide selection of movies in... More

After leaving the terrible hostel in St. John's I was concerned about staying in another. My concerns were quickly erased minutes after walking in the front door. After being greeted at the check-in desk I was given a tour of the whole house with a complete description of each amenity. Levi and his staff go out of the way to... More

This was easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. It feels just like a cozy cottage with it's location, feeling of comfort and furniture. The staff are super friendly and enthuthiastic about Charlottetown, which made the trip so much easier (it was my first time going and I was alone). The hostel was very clean and had... More

We looked for a central location for a four day visit to PEI, and we found it. Close to restaurants, the legislsture, pubs, historic sites, waterfront --- it has it all. Comfortable rooms, clean, and quiet. We had a room upstairs, parked the rental right in front, chatted with staff and guests in the evening after a day of touring... More

Levi and his team are running quite the successful operation here in Charlottetown. This hostel has a home-vibe that you can't get just anywhere. This goes beyond the free potatoes, cool hangout spots, and YES they do offer bike rentals. The staff here foster the kind of atmosphere and accommodation that will make your Charlottetown experience. I would recommend staying... More

By far the nicest hostel I've ever been to. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great relaxed atmosphere. Plus, breakfast is included! Talk about awesome service! The house is very nice and the rooms are cute, not regular hostel style. After all, this is an old house. Very nice neighborhood, walking distance form everything in Charlottetown. After this I will always... More

This hostel is awesome! Cozy, welcoming, bright and clean. Felt like home with the first steps on the front yard. In the mornings you will wake up with the smell of self made banana bread and fresh coffee! Enjoy the breakfast with staff and other travelers - you might get good tips for places to see or maybe even a... More
