“A most pleasant experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Hamilton Guesthouse is one of those rare unexpected pleasant surprises you once every so often come across in life.From the very accommodating owners Tim and Tanya to the helpful
staff Tom and Wayne, they cannot do enough to help make your stay a most comfortable experience.You are within walking distance of downtown or you can use the bicycles supplied for free, with a grocery store just down the street. But it is the genuine and unique personal touches that makes this place such a gem to find!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I actually live in Hamilton but have a small apartment. When I have guests coming to visit I stay in the HGH with my guests! I've stayed in Hostels all over the world and the HGH has that great "road trip" feel of staying in a Hostel far, far away. The folks who run it are so helpful and fun which helped me learn so much more about this City. The City of Hamilton itself is worth exploring for a few days with it's rich History and amazing buildings and nooks and crannies to explore. I myself came here intending to stay a few days and that was 6 years ago!

Hamilton Guesthouse is Hamilton, Ontario's first and only backpackers' hostel. We opened in 2010 in a small location and in 2012 we moved to the Pring House. This beautiful limestone mansion is heritage listed and showcases wonderful 19th Century features. We are a few blocks from the heart of downtown, a very short walk, and steps away from the nearest bus stop. We are also within a few blocks of a grocery store and other markets, restaurants and a large park. Hamilton Guesthouse has several different rooms. First, our four-bed mixed dormitory, which will cost travellers $25 per bed per night, in bunk beds in a very large room. Next, the Henrietta room is a private room; large and bright, with a double bed and costs $60 per night. Lastly, we have three similar private rooms: the Potter room, the Faust room, and the Gawain room - each cost $40 per night and have a double bed. The hostel has heating and air conditioning throughout, ensuring a comfortable stay. We have a back courtyard with sitting area and barbecue. Guests are free to smoke outside, as there is no smoking inside. There are two on-site parking spots, and room in our backyard for sheltered bicycle parking. We have plenty of maps and tourist guides, and our staff are always willing to help out in any way we can. We also offer the following services and features:- Full Self Catering kitchen with stove and microwave.-NO lockout or curfew- FREE wifi Internet access throughout the hostel-FREE parking (limited availability- call ahead)-FREE linens and towels provided- FREE secure lockers available to all guests.- FREE tea and coffee-FREE local phone calls- Comfortable common room for guests to socialize.-Library fully stocked with maps, travel guides, reading material. ... more   less
