Good basic hostel. Shared washroom on the first floor with many people, but didn't run into too many conflicts. Had outlets/lights at every bed, very convenient. Wifi very finnicky in my room. Older building so the stairs squeaked really loud, made me conscious of waking other people. Very nice patio on the top floor, unfortunately did not have the opportunity to visit. Relatively close to the attractions, but would recommend doing the bike share for convenience.


I loved the place and the location was perfect. Everything was super clean and comfortable.


I can't speak highly enough of Captial View. The staff were welcoming and helpful, which I appreciated when I arrived late at night after a day of travel. Walking distance to Union Station and the Metro. It's a neat building with a lovely rooftop patio (herb garden, hammocks, the works!) The doors, including the outside one, use keypad combination locks, which are great for someone prone to losing keys--keep track of your combination! The room was clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

Capital View is an alright hostel, in need of a good clean and some repair work. The rooms were nice and cool, and the location was great, but the hostel itself was really average, and could have been so much better, considering the price.


Decent enough. Room was a bit cramped. Bathrooms could have been better. Very good location though, easy walking distance of pretty much everything.


Great location and good, regular cleaning of showers and toilets by staff.


Great place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, and great location. I'd stay at this hostel any time.


It was a great hostel. The location was great, almost all the personal were great. It was clean and has a lot off services. It had a problem, that a window was broken but they just put papper to cover it. In general a good hostel.
