HI-Ottawa Jail Hostel

Ottawa, Canada

The atmosphere was amazing though it was incredibly hot in the rooms (no a/c or even a fan). Also there were no free lockers in the room which resulted to leaving my bag unattented for half an hour at most and all my money missing. Overall quite good experience for two to three nights at most.

Thanks for the feedback. I am sorry to hear about your stolen money. We do have free lockers in many rooms, but we are working on it for the rest of the building. As you remember, the Jail was built as a prison and not for the comfort of the 'guests". We are working on getting better electrical in the rooms so we can put a/c in the cells. Hopefully within the next two years.

Amazing hostel and facilities. The staff was amazing! It may be a bit difficult for most to climb to the third floor with their overweight baggages but it's worth the effort. The only disadvantage is the internet. It is not working properly neither in wi-fi nor in the available computers.
