          Nothing to complain about. This hostel is like a real family. Everybody is nice and respects each other. Situated near to pretty much all important spots of Ottawa. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

          Quite friendly atmosphere within staffs and guests, which is the best. Wi-Fi connection was usually good. Though it didn't connect at some times and spots, it happens in many hostels. There is a 24 hour open supermarket nearby this hostel.
