We stayed here for four nights and had a great time! It was my first time in a hostel, so the whole communal bathroom and shower thing was a bit strange at first, but it turned out to not be that bad. There were some school groups on our floor (4th floor) and they were a bit loud sometimes, but it's a hostel, so what do you expect. I did take some ear plugs for sleeping, but it turns out I didn't use them after the first night. The spaghetti dinner on Sunday night was great. A huge plate of tasty pasty and a pint of local beer for $5! The linens were a bit old, but they seemed clean and were comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. I am planning a return trip and will hopefully stay here again! The location is the best part as it's close to just about everything you could want it Ottawa. The breakfast is filling and ample--a great way to start the day!
