There was a lot of noise at night and I had to get up early in the morning. I realize it was the weekend and most people got to sleep in. Nice that they offered ear plugs to cut down the noise.
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Smaller place so you get to know everyone there very easily, awesome people. Staff is great. Within walking distance to everything. LOVE that they have a cafe there (great food and cheap too!). The bar wasn't that great and they don't have any planned activities, but because you make friends so easy here, we all would just go out together so it wasn't an issue, you were never bored. I was a single female traveler and it was fine. Strongly recommend!
Thank you for letting us check in at flexible timings!

Excellent... Staff are awesome, very welcoming & good atmosphere. Second time I have stayed there, will definitely visit again... Walking distance to Propeller Brewery which gives it a massive bonus (best beer in Halifax!)... AYE!!
i can strongly recommend the halifax backpackers. the staff is not only friendly, they become like friends. the whole hostel feels more like a flat-sharing community than a hostel. the hostel is very entangled with its surrounding community which makes you as a guest feel like a part of this community. the downtown is reachable within walking distance and the bus station is almost in front of the hostel. you get great food, coffee and live music at the hostel lounge. it s a lively place
Fantastic stay. Friendliest staff ever, who made you feel welcome and at home. Lovely community and location. I was there for the opening of the bar and the first weekend of local artists coming and it was phenomenal. I will recommend to everyone.
