A very clean hostel with really comfortable beds. Nice kitchen and living room. The hostel is situated right in downtown, but it isn't loud and you have privacy. More

One more single toilet would have been nice. No towel provided with your linens so that def tripped me up. The location is nice; one block away from tons of restaurants and bars in byward market although a half of a block in the other direction is homeless and soup kitchens so be cautious More
