    Had a very nice weekend in Ottawa thanks to this hostel! It's a 5-10min walk away from the Byward Market, the Canal and the Parliament, so the location's awesome. The staff was also really nice and helpful and the premises very clean!

    Great place to stay. Friendly and lovely host. I arrived after christmas dinner but I didn't miss out on a christmas mini game - I won myself two yummy chocolates.... :) A homelike experience. Totally worth it.

    The location was great which was the only good thing about the place. It was very dirty and unsafe. Some of the other people staying there seemed a little scary and rude. The hostel were nice and friendly.

    It feels like home in all respects. The ambiance is homelike, and everyone feels like they are at home and not in an inn or hotel at anytime whatsoever. Coffee and tea are always available 24 hours a day

    We have parking available at the hostel for $9 plus tax. It's best to call and reserve a spot in advance!
