Amazing location, clean beds and bathrooms. Fantastic kitchen. Overall a fun time!


REALLY enjoyed my stay here!! The location can't be beat! Not tp mention Halifax is an awesome city!! :)


Altogether an excellent experience.


As with every HI Hostel I've stayed at, the one in Halifax was clean, safe, located in a great central area and comfortable! Wifi worked perfectly and rooms were spacious & warm at night.


I booked a dorm with 6 beds and was put in a dorm with 8 beds, no one mentioned anything about it at check in though, explained, or apologized.

I loved the HI hostel! The staff were so helpful and nice and the facilities were great. The security in the rooms were really important to me and they had lockers as well as keys to rooms and even a code to get into the building. It was very clean and I really appreciated the quiet hours when people needed to do work and sleep later on in the night
