Had a great experience here but it was a shame it wasn't in easier walking distance of the main attractions! The facilities are good, staff are friendly and the travellers (as always) are always interesting.

As cold as beautiful Niagara is a awesome place to go to New Year. Also beautiful during the autumn it is a place that I'm interested to go at any time of the year. Would recommend going to the casino, the falls and all Clifton Hill.

Overall an average hostel. The home cooked muffins were a bit on the soggy side. When my wife found she had bed bugs she was extremely upset. We went to a chemist to make sure and they said that we had most defiantly got them from the night before. The owner first acted supposed then later told us they had... More

I stayed here with my son over memorial day weekend. I chose a hostel because I thought it would be a good experience for him. We took amtrak into NF and the hostel is very close to the train station.. Maybe four blocks. It is located in an old Victorian home that has a lot of character. The owners are... More

This hostel is a comfortable litle place ina very tourist crowded town. The area where the hostel is feels worn out and deserted but it's not far from the bus station and the sights are within walking distance. Nice staff, clean rooms and fairly good shower facilitties.

I had decided to stay here for two nights during my trip to Niagara Falls. I noticed that they did not have a website that you could book on, and I don't like using websites like hostelbookers, so I simply called them and they held my reservation for me. I arrived via Greyhound bus in the morning, and it is... More

The Location The Niagara Backpackers Hostel International is a privately owned Hostel (not part of a chain) located in downtown Niagara. Country to that suggested by the name, downtown Niagara isn’t terribly lively – however, it is very well presented and isn’t a tacky tourist trap unlike it’s sibling Clifton Hill which is actually situated closer to the famous Niagara...

I stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Niagara Falls. The place is adequate but the owners are old as is the property and its contents. The owners try their best in the interests of clients but Im afraid they need to retire as it is clearly a heavy burden for them. It is clean very basic & run with... More

Kinda a late review, but i stayed in this hostel in July 2011 when I visited Niagara falls for a day. The hostel is rustic and interesting, with interesting victorian styled furnishings and exterior, looking like some cute little castle. The owner is pretty friendly, and likes to roam about the outside in the sunshine. Location wise, its actually a... More

I stayed there for two nights to see the falls. The hostel is located in a beautiful large house with wood panels in the hall. Its about a 20-30 min walk to the falls, I was quite happy that it wasn't too close to all the casinos and that, I guess even in the summer it's a comperably quiet area.... More
