The location is good but the hostel was pretty filthy - the hand towels in all of the bathrooms seem like they haven't been changed in a few weeks and the kitchen is pretty gross. That said, the hostel itself is pretty cool (but lacks a good common area). It gets pretty loud on the weekend and is definitely more of a party hostel. I wish that the staff had offered some info on Halifax and the city when I had checked in,

Nice comfy beds, really homely. Spacious lockers and rooms. A little unorganised and no reception or staff when we arrived but overall a nice cosy place to stay whilst visiting!

The location is quite nice.Walking distance to all important sights and the harbour.The cafe located at the first floor is also a hip place, where you as a hostel guest can get the local beer for the happy-hours-price all day. BUT the hostel is way too small and extremely dirty.In my dorm there were no lights near the beds, so if you are not the going-to-bed-at-9pm-guy you wouldn't be able to read in your room or the tiny kitchen, when others want to sleep at that time.The price is not worth it.

Great atmosphere and staff, I instantly felt at home! The hostel is bases not directly in the city center, so no loud music from bars and clubs all night! Hostel provides you with good information of what to see and what to do.

The hostel is very close to the downtown area, we were able to walk everywhere, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. However, I did spot a mouse while I was there, and the bed was very uncomfortable. Good place if you aren't too fussy and looking for a cheap place to sleep for a night or two.
