The hostel was great for us! Location was great, staff was helpful and friendly, our room (private room) and bathrooms were nice and clean. Next trip to St. John's we will definitely stay here again! Cheers


The staff were friendly and helpful, the hostel was located right in the downtown, and the facilities were nice and clean.

Dirty, awful smell, unhelpful staff. Didn't know where staff was most of our stay. Layout makes it hard to socialize. Would not recommend.

Dear Hostelworld #1 there is a office by the main entrance,open from 8 am until 10pm #2 there is a common room downstairs #3 dorms are clean daily, and double check #4 zero tolerance for drugs therefore I am requesting to have this review remove,this is the first time I have ask for a review to be removed. please look at our other reviews,most people give our hostel a 80+ rating kind regards Dave


Very friendly and helpful staff, great location in "Jellybean Row". Would highly recommend having a car to get to tourist spots from here though (Cape Spear, Signal Hill, etc) but otherwise the location is spot on. Would like to see breakfast included but that's only a small point in what's already an excellent spot!
