Good place to stay for walking to city center attractions. Well maintained rooms, clean hostel, friendly staff to assist in luggage storage. Met friendly people who stayed at hostel and would like to again.

While (obviously) not as fancy or sophisticated as a chain hotel, the hostel offered a very reasonable room and facilities for the price it charged. It allowed me (a university student) to explore Ottawa whilst not worrying too much about my budget. Would definitely stay...More

I couldn't have asked for more. It was busy, but in a bustling energetic way, not an annoying way. They were helpful, the atmosphere was so comfortable, and you're a 3 minute walk from fun areas in town.

Nice place to be with a good atmosphere, nice and helpfull staff and a well equipped hostel. It is quite close to the centre, attractions and market though it takes a while to get there from the railway station.
