Very money driven and cost efficient. you quickly understand that this hostle isnt about the travellers needs but about how to generate the highest profit. up on check in they will ask you another 5CAD if you arent member of HI Hostel Group. If you dont have CAD on you but USD, they will convert them 1to1. its clean, and the staff was okay, but the atmosphere wasnt great. rooms were super small and it was cold in the room. probably to save money on heater. bus station / amtrak around the house.


Free pool table = win


Please make doors to lock automatically after walking out.


The hostel is only a few minutes walk from the bus terminal, is 20 - 30 minutes walk to the falls and is in a quiet area rather than in the middle of the town, The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful.


Very clean and comfortable hostel nicely situated in downtown. Unfortunately bit far from the falls (30min walk)


Nice place to stay, quite quiet though, by no means a party hostel. Close to the bus and train stations but a half hour walk from the main attractions. The shower I used was awful but I don't know if the rest were better or not. Decent place overall, no regrets staying here as a budget traveller.


nice hostel great option if you are in small a budget


Worth the money, really nice staff.


Great location! It's outside of the tacky town near the falls and is a half hour easy walk to the falls. The downside is there isn't anywhere nearby open for food at night-it's like a creepy ghost town!The staff weren't very helpful with information and didn't seem to care too much for the guests (except the older lady who was lovely) The hostel was clean,breakfast was great,there is a kitchen,the beds were comfortable with a little light and power plug beside each bed and bike hire available!


The check in time Is quite late, I feel that it should be a little bit earlier, especially it being a hostel. Some staff weren't very helpful where as others were a delight.

Very clean hostel and very helpful staff. Special thanks to Anastasia from Hong Kong!!!


We really enjoyed our stay in the HI-Niagara Falls Hostel. The location and price were great. The bathrooms and common areas were clean. The only complaint is that we found some bugs in our room (centipede and a spider) which was not great. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay and would stay again.


We had a great time there. It is a bit far from the Falls, but there are buses close to the hostel. One positive thing, they have parking lot. We had no problems with anything. I truly and fully recommend this place for your stay.


It was absolutely beautiful! I especially loved the yard outside

Great location, 2 minutes from train and bus terminal, easy walk down to the falls. Kitchen was clean, really nice breakfast. Staff were all super helpful and rooms and bathrooms all clean! Fast wifi. Would 100% use again!


It's fairly clean and really close to the downtown area. I'd stay there again for sure.

The hostel itself was reasonably well located, a 20 minute walk away from the falls themselves. However, I personally found the staff quite rude and unhelpful, and when problems with the room/roommates were encountered, the staff made no effort to help. The facilities in dorm rooms and common areas were dated, as well as bedding being dirty and torn. It was an inexpensive stay, but I certainly wouldn't have stayed longer than a night.
