I avoid staying at Hi-Hostels when possible because they generally lake any atmosphere and this didn't change that. It's a 25 minute walk to see Niagara Falls and 30 minutes to get to it which is absolutely fine but staff seem intent on telling you it's less. Breakfast was ok Staff were friendly and helpful


On the website it seemed like a lot of activities were organized bij the hostel but when I came there there was none organized. Besides that it was a nice hostel.


not an enjoyable stay. As the only hostel near the falls I booked with a small amount of hesitation. It is located 30 minutes walk from the Falls and when I asks the staff about getting there, they failed to mention the We Go bus that stops around the corner. The room was rather cramped and stuffy on the second floor. I stayed for one night and in the morning when I woke the electricity was down. The staff argued that there was still hot water but there wasn't. Breakfast was very basic


Even my son ( he is 13 years old and unsatisfied with almost the whole world and specially with his mother) said that the hostel is a nice surprise for him. That it was good choice to stay there.


Helpful staff, great showers and very where was really clean. Quite far out of town so be prepared for a long walk back late at night if you end up staying out in Niagara for the evening!


Lovely place to stay! I had a very peaceful time there and was given everything I needed for a pleasant stay. The staff were really lovely and create a really friendly environment. Best thing about the falls!

Great staff!!


Nice hostel but a bit far away from the city itself including the Niagara falls. I would say around 30 min walking.


The bedroom and the hostel in general were very clean. The location is "average" because it's 30 minutes walk from the falls, but only 2 minutes from the bus station, so it balances. About the people, even if I met really nice travelers, unfortunately the guy at the reception was really rude and even sarcastic which pretty much spoiled all the rest.


Good place, felt secure, very clean, staff were very helpful, good location, close to transport. Will recommend it.


really great hostel, just around the corner from the bus stop


Nice hostel. Located a bit far from the falls (30 minute walk), but it is a nice walk. Unfortunately a lot of the surrounding houses are abandoned (wood being placed for windows and poorly maintained). What doesn't provide to the feeling of a safe neighborhood. I am not sure what to think of the staff. He wasn't berry helpful or flexible. But he let me store my backpack when I arrived before the check in time.


Good location and very friendly and helpful staff. Ready to stay there next time I'll go to Niagara Falls.

Would be nice if you changed the dishwashing sponge every day, it's nasty and full of bacteria - it would make cleanliness perfect! Also, the smell of garbage on the porch is a shame and makes the outdoor facilities unusable. Other than that, everything was perfect, thanks for a good stay :)


This is the second time I've stayed here and it's been great both times!

The hostel was the best I stayed in. This was the first hi hostel I stayed in but my previous experience as been basic but cheap. This one was more than basic for same price. The staff were good they good do with some more training to what is near by but that may be because they haven't been there long or they didn't arrive till winter therefore the weather was to bad to explore.


Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Descent breakfast. A perfect place to stay. The Falls are 30 min walk, the greyhound bus stop 2 min.


Nice hostel!
