Here at Halifax Backpackers we offer a home away from home right in the heart of North End Halifax. We are a small, independent hostel that exemplifies the grass roots community spirit that makes Halifax worth visiting.

Our hostel is conveniently located north of downtown Halifax, only 5 minutes walk to the waterfront and all the other major amenities. Halifax Backpackers is committed to the diverse indie community we reside in. We have live music venues and second hand stores. We believe in inexpensive backpacking and communal experiences.

" Great place. People are very friendly and fun to hang out with. The cafe it's attached to is also pretty nice with some relatively low-priced food and beer, so that's also a bonus. I wish I could have stayed longer. "
