Great location. Just wasnt many people booked in when i was there. But nice and relaxed place. Good to chill and recharge.


The nicest hostel in Ottawa for a good night's sleep. Not as social as the other two, but much more comfortable. Comfy beds, a huge bathroom, nice wireless internet.


This was my first stay in a hostel. I was really nervous as I didn't know what to expect. The rooms are small but they are clean and the beds are comfertable. The hostel is well maintained and someone comes and cleans every morning. Great location, walking distance to everything you need. Will consider barefoot hostel for my next trip to Ottawa for sure!

A really nice hostel, clean and the staff were nice and helpful. The only downside is that they don't have a breakfast, would have loved it! Great location!


I had a blast!

Good hostel. However, it's part of the hotel next door so there is no reception in the hostel so that feels a bit strange. Also, if you have any questions you have to keep going to the hotel next door. But the hostel is very clean and cosy. There is no breakfast or oven in the kitchen. Wifi is good and its pretty comfy and spacious. Also there are two communal PCs which are good.
