South Algonquin Backpackers Hostel is now The Arlington Hotel! New owners, but still the same great place, and in the same great south Algonquin location.

Look, if you want a sparkling souless minimalist box, refitted with the latest plastic every 6 months then you should head for somewhere a few hundred miles south. The Arlington still has a sense of community, an expectation that people talk to each other and that not everything is an instagram opportunity. Sure, it looks old and the decor is tired. Sure the bathrooms are shared, but the food is top notch, the company is always willing to talk and the staff are wonderful. We stayed two nights, everything was clean, everything worked, we watched films with the locals, read great books, ate fantastic pizza and had wonderful conversations with people. I wish more places were like this.

Rundown dirty place with moldy shower, overflowing trash bins in kitchen and bathroom, old uncomfortable mattress, only reachable via telephone, no response on email, we won't go back. And watch out for the "canyon" in the parking lot.

I live locally but since the Arlington has a bar and great music, I sometimes need accommodations after enjoying a fun night there. It's such a unique and awesome feature for a rural watering hole to provide a place to spend the night. There are a variety of price points and the management is really easy-going. I find the rooms to be clean and they're well decorated to boot

The kitchen and the bathrooms are very dirty and old. The kitchen was small, and it was a mess with old food everywhere; in the fridge, on the table. Table was dirty, the cooking stuff looks like it's never washed. Taps and showers in the washrooms are broken. The taps, where I wanted to get a drink, have only warm water. The showers have only cold water. Also the rest of the building is old and dirty and the owner acted like he was surprised by our reports.

We had a group of 27 cyclists and had a blast! Lots of space and wide variety of rooms to accommodate couples, friends, etc The Manager helped us arrange breakfasts and lunches at a nearby community centre. Bar on the main floor had great live entertainment and cheap drinks

This hostel will be memorable, but unfortunately for all of the wrong reasons. Upon arrival, we had to go hunting for the manager in order to secure our room keys... we were told if he wasn't around to "check the bar". 1. Kitchen is small and unkept. Sink was full of dirty dishes and greasy pans requiring washing. The 'frig had no room at all - and something was leaking out of one of the vegetable crispers that prevented it from even being opened! Clearly hadn't been washed in quite a while. Lack of glasses, dishes, etc. A very disappointing first impression! 2. Third floor bathrooms - the one with the large shower. The shower floor is awful - be sure to bring footwear to use when showering, and it was almost impossible to finally get water that was warm enough to bathe with. The sink has separate hot and cold faucets with no stopper. Everything requires a good scrubbing. The small washroom with toilet and sink - only the hot water faucet works and this might be acceptable if you normally brush your teeth with hot water! 3. Bunk bed mattresses are uncomfortable, with springs poking up and again - lumpy old pillows and dirty carpets both in the rooms and hallways. Altho' there was a dining area, it was closed. Perhaps you could prepare your meal and eat in the TV room - the only redeeming quality of the third floor. Patio furniture is broken and dirty. Stinky, water filled containers that must serve as ashtrays due to the number of rotting cigarette butts floating in them. The "bar" is a dive but with the lights turned down at night, and after a few cold beers, perhaps you won't mind. Maynooth is an interesting town - small but serviceable with a gas station and general store. A couple of very nice galleries and a wonderful farmer's market on Saturdays in the summer. Get out of the hostel (where you will literally be overwhelmed by the heat), and head down Hwy. 127 to Lake St. Peter to enjoy the sand beach and beautiful lake to cool off in. I would NOT return to this "hostel" - which was more like a boarding house that would never pass a health inspection!

I stayed 6 days at the Arlington, and I would return in a heartbeat. Booking the reservation was painless, all done by email but it only took about an hour start to finish. The manager even checked to make sure I was intending to come to Maynooth, Canada, not Maynooth, Ireland. My corner room #8 was very large with funky purple walls, 3 windows that opened and had completely functioning screens, a fan (no A/C in Canada), a large couch, a chair, a little desk with chair, a wardrobe, and a big, comfortable bed. The electrical outlets were high enough to reach without crawling on the floor. The TV room across the hall was never a bother. The kitchen down the hall was stocked with all the necessities for cooking and storing food, although I only made coffee and tea. The bathrooms are shared; this is a hostel, after all. The top-floor bathroom needs renovating, but the lower-floor bathroom was modern and up-to-date. I expected the live music from the pub to keep me up, but it didn't. Finally, all the other guests I met were extremely friendly. Don't get me wrong: this is not the Ritz. The building is old and a little worn around the edges. But it is a wonderful, clean, pleasant place to stay in Maynooth.

The Arlington Hotel is in Maynooth, which is not the first town you think of, if you want to go to the Algonquin Provincial Park. The Park is around 30mins away by car. But the rooms are really nice and clean, there is a well-equipped kitchen free to use for every guest and downstairs is a bar and a billard table where you can play! Opposite is a filling station as well as a grocery store, so you can get what you need just by crossing the street. The owner is a really friendly man and the other guests are also easy-going. The price is nice as well and so I can only recommend this place!

I stayed over night in a recent trip to Maynooth for snow mobiling The guy was very helpful, I booked late and he responded promptly by email. It's not 4 star, best description would be rustic. It's an old building and the rooms are functional. It was clean and tidy and for $35 a night you can't really complain. If your out that way doing something it's a great place to lay down your hat. If your after a 4⭐️hotel I'd find some where else.

With live music, a mish-mash of friendly people, and a great bar, this is always an up-beat place. if just for a few hours playing pool, or an over-night get-away before heading to Algonquin, the owners always take the best care of you.
