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

There are enough toilets and shower booth. The beds are so comportable. Kitchen has everything too (tools, spicies, oven..) and so clean. It's not clouded because there are... More

I've been to many hostels and they usually try to accomodate groups by allowing them to sleep together specialy when requested once booking. Anyhow, we were told... More

I stayed 5 nights in the attic 4 bed room, this is definitely my favourite hostel I've stayed in thus far. It's fairly centrally located, about a 15min walk from where the Maritime bus service drops you off and a hop skip and a jump from anything you could need. The staff were the highlight of my stay, everyone was... More

We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. Everything is super clean. Levi, the owner, runs a pretty tight ship there. His staff is wonderful, very friendly & helpful. Breakfast is very good and included in the price. You can buy fresh or cooked lobster around the corner at Water-Prince Corner Shop, located at the corner of Water and... More

I stayed at several HI hostels in the Maritimes and this was my favorite. It's only a minute walk to the waterfront and the historic downtown area. The heritage building is well-maintained, clean, and offers computer workstations, wireless internet, barbeque area, games, TV, parking along the street, everything you'd expect, plus breakfast. They strictly follow the 11:00 p.m. to 7:00... More

It was really nice to stay there. The staff there were pretty friendly and helped me a lot. Breakfast was included and I guess price is reasonable. Also it is located in downtown Charlottetown and easy to access to everywhere. If you would like to join the tour to somewhere out of city, such as Anne of Green Gabels, there... More

We love a good company, cool music and interesting conversation. We discovered xxx PEI travelling from Montréal and this cozy hostel was the place where it all came together for us. It was an unforgettable experience! We loved staying on a terrace listening to a lovely Sarah Jane playing guitar with a glass of wine chatting with the stuff and... More
