Great location, small hostel with only 4 rooms so if you are looking to meet people I suggest you stay in a larger hostel. It was clean clean and felt . Close to Byward market, 2 grocery stores and parking right in front of the hostel if you are driving in. Overall I enjoyed my stay at Barefoot.

The hostel is very clean and well organised (small things such as each bunk having a shelf and a hairdryer easily available in the bathroom made a big difference). It is a small hostel, so it tends to be quiet but I imagine this encourages solo travellers rather than groups, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. It feels very secure and luggage can be left in the secure foyer of its nearby sister hotel. The only downside for me was that the bedroom was too hot (the AC didn't work properly).

Small hostel that is very quiet. Walking distance from most of the major sites and entertainment venues in Ottawa. Also well connected by public transport (esp. from airport). Great value for money.

Barefoot Hostel is one of the best hostels in the world! It is located with in walking distance from great food and shopping. There also a lot of buses in a few blocks on the location. The host is outstanding. And this is one of the cleanest Hostels ever. 5 Star Rating.

The Barefoot Hostel is a lovely place and is in an excellent location. It's very clean and perfect if you're in town for a "serious" purpose - writing an exam, going to an interview, etc. My only qualm would be the security. As there's no one on site (though, there's one person at the hotel next door to get you set up, etc.), and there's only a card-key system at the front door, I think there should be a card key for each room (particularly, as there were very people during my

Small hostel with friendly staff and great location. Bathroom is one of the best I've ever seem in a hostel (although there is only one in the floor), and the common area is spacious. Lockers are quite small, though. Would certainly stay again.
