I can't say enough about my visit to St. John's. The hostel was awesome, the staff helped me with any question I had. They gave me tips on what I wanted to see, how to get there and pointed me to another hostel in Bonavista. I stayed there foe 2 days, and I owe that excellent experience to the staff at 8 Gower St. I highly recommend this location to anyone. Great people, in the right place makes for a great experience. Thanks Staff and 8 Gower for making my stay and my experience excellent.

The staff was very friendly when I got there but when I left the girl pretended to call a cab for me to go to the airport but didn't. I waited 25 minutes then I knew something was wrong and the girl wasn't at the office anymore to ask her so I call a cab myself, it got there in 2 minutes. The laundry room is always very busy for the hostel's laundry. The bathroom were often without toilet paper and not kept very clean.

Had a really nice time in Saint John's staying at the City Hostel. The location was perfect for both going downtown and heading up to Signal Hill. It was basically within walkable distance from all tourist attractions that you will want to visit (save Cape Spear which requires a car). The staff were all very friendly and gave us helpful tips on where to go and what to do. There are lockers outside the rooms to store your things if you want. The wifi worked very well.

I loved my stay in St. John's! Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I was a late check in, so they gave me the doorcode and left the keys for my room at the reception and gave me the opportunity to check in properly whenever I have time the next day.
