Felt at home immediately. Andre and Carroll are very welcoming and helpful. The hostel is very clean and having the living room and dining room makes you feel really comfortable here. Thoroughly recommended. The pancakes in the morning are a brilliant opportunity to socialise as well.

This is one of the best and friendliest guesthouses I ever slept in. The owner Carol is awesome and gives a lot of interesting informations about Niagara Falls. From the Guesthouse it's only a five to ten minute walk until you can see the Falls for the first time. The rooms and the bathroom is very clean and organised. We... More

The owners make this hostel great. They are so helpful. Andre met us when we arrived and immediately gave us a map of how to move around during the day and night. The hostel is an old house in a regular looking neighbourhood. Actually the USA side of Niagara is, sadly, run down and not well kept but staying at... More

Came here with a friend on a gloomy day back in April 2013 and wasn't excited at all that it was raining in Niagara Falls. However, coming to this hostel did make the stay a lot more pleasant. The hostel is about a 40 minute drive from the Buffalo Airport and about 20 minutes walk to Niagara Falls. The town... More

I really enjoyed staying here. It was a very quiet place but I found it to be relaxing. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful proving you with a map as you enter and telling you exactly which way to walk both at night and in the day. They know everything there is to know about the area and... More

Great place to stay in Niagara Falls! Pros: - Clean - Safe - Comfortable - Great hosts/owners - Delicious pancake breakfast included :) I stayed in a dorm with a friend of mine, and since we visited in off-season we had the room to ourselves! It would have been a little cramped with four people and their luggage (which was... More

My hostel days are well behind me but I was attending a concert at the Rapids Theatre and this hostel was within walking distance. My daughter and I stayed in the private room. The beds were comfy and clean. We didn't meet the owners (apparently they don't live there) but Nanci was there to take care of us and she... More

This guesthouse was great for our purposes. My bf and I made a very last minute trip to Niagara Falls on 4th of July weekend. The only hotel rooms available cost $150+ per night and they were a bit far off from the falls. Luckily, we were able to snag 2 beds in this guesthouse last minute for $60 +... More

Thankfully we only spent one evening in this lost little town. We had such bad luck with the weather which meant we didn't spend much time by the falls, and had to fill the rest of the day wandering around a quite frankly run-down left-to-rot area. The hostel itself is OK, no real complaints there. You get what you pay... More

Wanderfalls, Owner at Wanderfalls Guesthouse & Hostel, responded to this review

I understand that weather can truly impact anyone's experience anywhere. In the early spring, the weather can be "dreary." Also, none of the main summer attractions are open to divert your attention from the lousy weather if you are unfortunate enough to have it. Niagara Falls is an interesting town; no big lights, no glitz, but lots of history not... More

Stay here for a layover night, but still received very helpful comments from the owners to see the fall in night (you can't miss it)! At the first glance it may be very off from what you expected if you are expecting a starred hotel, but it is absolutely one of the best hostels I have stayed. Great atmosphere, too.... More
