Awe, thank you so much, "lovely"! That's a first. I'm glad you enjoyed Gorge View and weren't bored by my stories. Hope the rest of your travel is going just as well.

The staff were excellent and always on hand to help, the hostel is only a 10 minute walk from the American falls and a 10 minute walk from the bridge into Canada, the actually street its on is a bit derelict but overall it was good value and a pleasent experience.

Thanks so much for the feed back, you were a way better guest than we were hosts. 6 days and I hardly knew you were here. I'm happy you enjoyed the your stay and the hostel. Enjoy the rest of your travels and your life.

The host Jeff is very cool and handsome, just like his hostel. One day when I have my son(maybe 10 years later...), I'll also let him stay here. Clean&Convenient&Cool!

Thank you so much, there's a rush of handsome compliments lately, must have been a lot of near sighted guests ;-) Thank you for sharing your experience. We'll be WAY WAY WAY better in 10 years, every day we improve a little, every year a lot and until we're truly the best, we wont stop.

Sorry that you had some awkward experiences. While we provide a great deal more locker space than most hostels, our lockers do require that you have your own personal lock to secure them.

As soon as I arrived at the hostel I was greeted by the manager who was very helpful in letting me know how to get around and the best places to eat in the town, as well as helping me organise a taxi to the train station upon departure. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The hostel is located only a 15 min walk from the falls.

Perfect experience, absolutely nothing to complain about. What I liked best is definitely the location - walking distance to the Niagara Falls is hard to beat.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We're proud of our location too. Wish we could move the whole building even closer but it's quite close and the walk to the falls is quite scenic from nearly the first step.

Awesome hostel! No words to describe. Even better than many hotels. Huge bed, a lot of space, a little bit your own privat space, clean, very good place. Location is very good too.

Everything about this hostel was absolutely perfect: great location, beautiful building, new and beautiful interior, great room and excellent staff.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Yikes! Now that is going to raise expectations. We're trying but I don't think we have reached perfection yet but I am betting we will. Just today we put a new fridge in the kitchen thanks for not noticing the flaws of the old one.

The staff were excellent in telling me the best places to go and when. I only stayed one night and there was a guy snoring like a truck. But apart from that it was great

Owner Comment (Hide)
That's not possible, trucks don't snore!? Sorry, we are researching this phenomena. One technology is attaching devices with a mild electrical current to each bed and placing a panel to control those devices by other beds, however we found particularly with guys traveling together that they used it to harass their buddies and it didn't effect the snoring much. The crusade to end the reign of snoring continues.

Staff were exceptionally helpful in every aspect! A side note this was the first hostel that I've stayed at where you get two pillows - after travelling for a while this was extremely exciting adding extra comfort!!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you, we're glad you appreciated the extra touches. However, two pillows is a pit of a secret. Now everyone knows!!! Ugh. It's hard to surprise guests and you can't leave mints on pillows in a shared accommodation. The first guest or the stay overs eat them, we tried it.

The only real challenge with this place would be how it could be improved! The staff is great, very friendly and eager to help. They explained many things about Niagara without us even having to ask. The location is right next to the Falls. The accomodation is very comfortable and well renovated. Everything is clean and orderly. Free parking. Extra sinks and mirrors. Perfect!

The only challenge responding to this review is typing while crying. You're so kind, we have lots to improve and will continue improving this charming 140 year building for years to come. Modernizing it for the traveler while enhancing it's antique charm and creating more fun spaces.

I had an absolutly great stay! The hostel is in walking distance to the Falls, the Whirlpool and the stores. Futhermore it is really clean, the rooms are big and you meet a lot of nice people :) The staff is awesome! Without any trouble I could check- in and out before the regular opening hours!

Ouch... Well to be honest we can't always check people in before regular hours but we try. If your room or bed is ready and its not going to be a big negative impact on other guests we do try. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us though and I'm glad we got to accommodate your special circumstances.

More than anything, what we like to see at Gorge View are the forming of new friendships and guests interacting and enjoying some of the most naturally beautiful sites in the world together. Thank you for helping us accomplish that. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay.

Really friendly and helpful staff, very spatious and clean room, easy to walk to the Niagara Falls. The street on which the hostel is located seemed to be quite dead and empty but was still safe. Washing machine and tumble dryer in the basement so we could finally do our laundry after being on the go for two weeks. Would definitely recommend this place!!

I have stayed in many hostels but Gorge view is the best so far. As clean as a five star hotel, friendly staff who help you with everything to make your stay memorable. Bike rental with the city map is superb. They also give discount for restaurants and other activities in Niagara. Bathrooms are always clean and rooms are spacious. Dorms are as good as a single room in a big hotel. Excellent location and excellent value for money. I would definitely return back.

You make me want to stay at this wonderful place you speak of!!! Thanks so much for the kind praise. We will work very hard to live up to your words. Thank you for staying and being such a wonderful guest.

Jeff and his hostel are absolutely welcoming, I've spent a great time in Gorge View! Rooms are fully equiped, very clean and comfortable, best value for money in Niagara! Free water, coffee and tea available...bikes also are available to explore the city and the different sightseeings. Jeff is a very friendly and nice person...he is clearly owning a hostel not to make big money but to provide to guests the best experience. Thank you again Jeff, I really appreciated your advices and hospitality!
