This felt like one of the cleanest and roomiest hostels i've ever stayed at! I would definitely stay here again. It was close to the waterfront, and nearby was a lot of coffeeshops and restaurants. It was also close to the train station.

Great location; easy to walk to all the main attractions in town. Friendly staff. The rooms were okay. I stayed in one of the lower level female dorm rooms, and there was a slight smell as you walked down the steps. But, overall decent stay for the price and would recommend.

Clean, convenient and cheap in a great location in downtown Halifax. No complaints. The bed was awful the first night but I got accustomed to it quickly. Basically a four inch foam slab covered in an incontinence pad that does nothing but add traction when you try to turn over. But you do get used to it quickly. Nice, clean bedding and a towel is provided. Also, showers had consistent hot water and good water pressure. I'd stay again.

A lovely hostel in a good location. Very clean, good showers and beds, and comfortable places to hang out. I would be happy to return!

This hostel was super strict, and the staff arrogant about it. Here's what staying in this hostel is like: They state in their rules that you can't drink in the rooms. Fine, we didn't drink in the rooms but I kept my alcohol in my locker (because where else am I going to put it?). One day we went out and I forgot to lock my locker. When I came back I found that the staff had GONE THROUGH MY LOCKER AND TAKEN MY ALCOHOL and refused to give it back until checkout. My recommendation? Don't stay

Really great location for walking around. Staff weren't very friendly. Stayed in the female dorm downstairs and it was kind of dingy and had poor lighting. Slept on the top bunk near a window and you could hear people's conversations on the street. Fine for the price and for a quick trip. Probably wouldn't stay again.

It's a great place to stay in Halifax. Close to all the locations you wanna see and there's a grocery stop as well as a Maritime bus station just around the corner. The staff was friendly and on my arrival day someone stayed at the reception to give me my keys, as my flight was delayed and I couldn't check in during reception hours.
