Stayed in this hostel for 2 days and would have stayed longer if there was more things open. We were a little bit out of season so most things didn't quite get running yet in mid May. Sat and had a bbq the first night with the the owner who was cool. The chilled environment kind of resinated from him....

Full size house fully converted into a hostel, new facilities and everything is kept really clean. Included brekkie was simple (fruit, toast, OJ, tea/coffee) but in a pleasant atmosphere. Excellent location (Charlottetown is not the largest) - base yourself here and you've got the entire city within walking distance. Everything is built around socialising with your fellow travellers - converted...

Stayed at this hostel for 2 nights with 2 other friends, the staff were all really welcoming, helpful and present. We were upgraded from dorms to private rooms which overall cost us less (thanks!) and the beds were extremely comfortable. Breakfast was diverse, with fresh baked goods and fruit. Kitchen had everything you need, really extensive and all the spices...

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Period. This hostel has a lot of personality! It's small, cosy, and clean, and the staff do a great job of fostering an easy-going, welcoming environment. The location is close to everything you could want/need in downtown Charlottetown. Great if you're flying solo or in a group, but since it was...

Good sized hostel with the feeling of a bed and breakfast. Travellers and staff were friendly. The whole establishment really helped to build connections between travellers: free breakfast around a common kitchen table, two common rooms with plenty of entertainment options (TV, vinyl record player, pool table, lots of seating). Hostel was clean and a short walking distance from downtown...

This hostel is basically a converted house. Breakfast is included and very social as there is just the one table in the kitchen. Plenty of on street parking and all attractions are within walking distance. As well as a tv room there is also a converted garage with a pool table and massive LP collection to spend evenings flicking through.

Currently staying at this amazing hostel. The staff were so friendly immediately upon arrival. We had a lovely tour through the home. There is a kitchen and fridge that you can use at any time. There are four showers and 3 bathrooms. There is one only female bathroom as well. There is cable and a wide selection of movies in...

After leaving the terrible hostel in St. John's I was concerned about staying in another. My concerns were quickly erased minutes after walking in the front door. After being greeted at the check-in desk I was given a tour of the whole house with a complete description of each amenity. Levi and his staff go out of the way to...

This was easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. It feels just like a cozy cottage with it's location, feeling of comfort and furniture. The staff are super friendly and enthuthiastic about Charlottetown, which made the trip so much easier (it was my first time going and I was alone). The hostel was very clean and had...

We looked for a central location for a four day visit to PEI, and we found it. Close to restaurants, the legislsture, pubs, historic sites, waterfront --- it has it all. Comfortable rooms, clean, and quiet. We had a room upstairs, parked the rental right in front, chatted with staff and guests in the evening after a day of touring...
