Property Information:

City Hostel is located right in the middle of downtown St.John's, only 5 minutes walk to the waterfront and a 10 minute walk from George Street and all the other major amenities (like you'll need anything else!). City Hostel is owned and operated by two experienced travelers who saw a need for a hostel within their hometown.

We provide a friendly atmosphere based on our own travel experiences and try to minimize the hassle that we dislike so much about travelling! We provide local information and tour/sightseeing discounts on site.

We offer private and dormitory rooms at very reasonable prices.

City Hostel is located such that you'll almost certainly never need to use any form of public transport to get around, because it's within a few minutes walk from everything!

    I made a 3 night booking and they overbooked, so they expected me to change rooms halfway through my stay even though I booked all nights at once. They said they would fix it and let me know. On the 2nd day I came back to my room to find all of my things missing. If I had arrived 1 hour later (after office hours) I would not have been given my things, a bed, and would have missed my early flight the next day. They blamed me for this. Terrible management and both rooms stank of human sweat.
