HI- Niagara Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 February 2017

I was backpacking across the USA with my younger brother and we stayed here when we went to see the Falls. It's very friendly, and about a 10 minute walk from Niagara Falls. Our check-in was pretty simple, and the staff are very friendly.
It has a Youth Hostel vibe to it - everyone was about our age (I'm 22 and my brother is 18) or younger (international trips).
We were in a dorm that slept 4 (two bunk beds) and they had lockers to keep your bags in. The bathrooms were further down the corridor, and very clean.
We headed down to see the Falls lit up at night, and I wasn't sure how safe the neighbourhood was for us to walk back through at night (mainly because as we walked to the hostel to check in, a lot of houses were derelict) but the lady at reception assured us it was fine, which it was.
There was breakfast things available the next morning (tea, cereal, toast etc) and towels too. I'd recommend staying here, ideal for backpackers!

Room Tip: Ideal for backpackers

The HI hostel in Niagara Falls is one of the coziest youth hostels I have ever stayed in. Currently, six- and four-bed dorm rooms as well as private rooms are available but as of spring 2017 an additional eight-bed dorm will be available, too.
Everything in the hostel is very clean and tidy and all the rooms are equipped with air condition systems. Combined with a spacious dining room, there is a well equipped kitchen with several cooking and baking facilities and two big fridges. The team is trying to improve the place constantly and really seem to care about their guests experiences. This winter, a new fireplace was built in the basement which makes the common area even more enjoyable - the whole year round! Furthermore, there are a pool and a foosball table, a huge TV including a comprehensive DVD collection and a even a cross trainer available downstairs so that it will never get boring, even on rainy days.
By the way, I can only recommend to visit the Niagara Falls in winter, too. It is a unique experience to see the falls surrounded by ice and snow and the areas around all the tourist attractions are not as crowded as in summer.
Especially the staff and the owner of the hostel always do their best to make their guests' stays as comfortable as possible, give all the necessary information for your visit and friendly answer every other upcoming question.
Thank you for everything and all the best - I had a great time!

Room Tip: The private rooms are very comfortable, cozy and nicely done up!

This hostel is incredibly clean, and while it isn't right in the heart of the action, it's only about a 35 minute walk to the falls. The kitchen is very large and well equipped. Breakfast consisted of cereal, toast and apples. The basement was excellent, a big pile of beanbag chairs, television, fireplace, pool table and foosball table. And the parking was free.

it was a last-minute booking and the overall experience was great -thanks to Massimo (if I remember his name correctly) who checked us in late on the evening {and please double check that you arrive during opening hours as there's no one working the night shift}-
the inn/hostel is far enough from the actual falls not to be disturbed by them. the place is charming - the location can be creepy at night but very pleasant once the sun start rising.
over the course of our trip, this 'forced' stop was the only one we spent sharing a bedroom with other peeps. breakfast is included (because you kinda pay for it anyway) but always appreciated !!! access to internet either on wifi or on the computer is free.

be aware that for whatever reason if you can't pay with your card, there's no cash machine at the inn, so bare in mind to get cash beforehand.
