PROS: AMAZING location (almost in the byward market) but quiet, friendly mix of people, small community feel, right near a grocery store and other amenities. CONS: The bathrooms definitely need a good cleaning. Also, if you need to use the bathroom in the morning, good luck - there are no separate toilets, so you need to wait for people to shower. We took a private twin room - which was actually bunk beds. The room was TINY and could barely fit two people standing with luggage.

The hostel is run down and very basic, but that is ok with me - one cannot expect luxury for the low price. Lack of effort to mantain cleanliness, on the othef hand, is unexcusable.

It was unusually warm for Ottawa, so the dorm room was pretty stuffy and warm the first night. The next few nights, there were three fans in use, which greatly improved this situation.

The hostel is one of the best in location and cleanliness. But too bad that everybody of the guest is working.... Nice and cozy atmosphere but not really outgoing

I thought it was great. No complaints, slept well. It's very well located, and the parking is definitely useful.

Kitchen, disgusting. Room -soso. Auto-locked door made me feel safe but it was so inconvenient at the same time. Have to carry key even when you're going to bathroommmmm. Both pros and cons, but below the average because of the KITCHEN
