HI-Ottawa Jail Hostel

Good location opposite shopping centre and down the road to byward market area for food and pubs. Good helpfull staff. Rooms had no lockers to lock valuables away in. Instead lockers were available in a hallway on an entirely different floor to the one I was staying on, so not entirely practical to use. Free breakfast of cereal, coffee, OJ and bagel was good. Staff even conducted a brief historical tour around the building. Definetley a worthwhile one off experience although a little unnerving!

Needs better common area with couches and tv, for guests to relax and wind down. Staff very helpful though, printed out receipt ticket for 911 memorial free of charge. Hostel needs to upgrade city maps, I found them to be out of date, with two locations of interest no longer at that point and or cease to exist. Room was clean, good bed, bathroom cleaned every day.

Friendly staff, weird rule though with no shoes allowed inside which was hard getting used too, it's not a private residence, it's a hostel and we are paying customers, so I don't get why there is this rule. Room was good, comfy bed, top floor bathroom very average, tiniest sink I have seen, barely enough room to wash your hands, so went to 2nd floor bathroom, these sinks here were water saving which was slightly time consuming and cumbersome.
