I stayed here for 3 nights in August and it was a decent experience. It is located in Bytown, near the market, and a stone's throw away from the Canadian Parliament. The rooms are named after continents and the bunks are named for different landmarks on that respective continent - a nice touch! The staff here are very friendly but when it comes to the city itself, it didn't seem like they knew too much other than what was in the general vicinity. However, they were very helpful in getting information they didn't know. It was also quite clean, and they emphasized that you had to take off your shoes when entering to keep the place clean. I was staying there at the time when a lot of exchange students from Europe and Brazil came over so I was kind of the lone traveller but other than that, a very average stay!
