          The hostel really needs air conditioning. Otherwise the rooms were ok; they were just a little cramped. The employee that checked me in could have shown me around. He only explained where my room was, but I had to find where the showers were and...More

          This room looked and smelled rather like some frat-boy basement hideout than a legitimate hotel/hostal room. It didn't feel or smell clean at all; I have stayed at better places for a fraction of the cost.

          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!

          This is one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in many all around the world. Certainly the worst I stayed in for my Quebec/Ontario trip, by far. If you don't care about your accommodation, it is a cheaper...More
