Overall, this hostel was good. Definitely in a more dodgy area, but maybe more interesting for it (and besides, nothing is too far in Halifax). The cafe downstairs is good, the staff are helpful, and the upstairs rooms are nice, with hardwood floors. However, the showers were pretty basic, and sometimes gross, with fruitflies all around them, and sometimes rotting baseboards. I also stayed one night in the downstairs "family room" and the floor was pretty filthy and made of school-type tile/concrete. It is also louder here as you are closer to more traffic. While I can't say that it'd be my first recommendation to a friend, overall the experience was a good one. Just clean a little more, okay?
