What I most liked of staying at the Capital View was the location, we could go by walking to many places we want to visit and the bus/train station too. But it has some issues that can`t be ignored. They have a terrible heating system, it was extremely hot on room and very cold on the tv room. Everybody was... More

I stayed there for one week, it was my first experience in a hostel and was a really good one. Very nice and helpful staff, the rooms are simple but provide all you need, the bathrooms are clean. The hostel is well-located. I rarely used the public transportation because I preferred discovering the city on foot and the hostel is... More

We arrived at 9am and they didn't open until 10am which was fine. Then the manager came in (but didn't let us know who she was) and told us we had to wait and kept asking why we were so early and who had told us to be here this early. She was nice in the end and put us... More

Its a few blocks from the nearest coffee shop if you are there on the weekend but its a nice walk. The staff is a super friendly and outgoing crew. They were generous and very... More

I stayed here for one night mainly because I wanted to be in a central location close to Union station in order to catch an early train. The location is great as The Mall is within easy walking distance, as is the station. My room was very basic, which is fine at this price, and the nearby bathroom smelled of... More
