Great character and very friendly staff. I liked the shoes-off policy. It may be a couple of blocks further from the main tourist attractions than the IH down the road, but don't let that stop you: you'll have a most enjoyable stay with great people. No alcohol to be drunk on-site after 10pm: this has advantages and disadvantages. My only reservation is that I'm not a big fan of the communal shower design, at least in the men's. (I have no idea if the women's showers have the same layout!)

Old City Philly House, Philadelphia, USA

This is a new place and they're still working some of the kinks out. The staff are very accommodating, and it's a great place to chill out. I kind of like how everyone has to leave their shoes at the door. One EXTREMELY IMPORTANT point is that the Philadelphia House currently has only two (2) individually lockable lockers for approx. 24 beds. I find this unacceptable for any hostel - be warned if you're bringing a laptop or iPad.

Modern, clean hostel with its own bar. Sometimes noise from the bar leaks into the dorm rooms upstairs, but it's not terrible. Good atmosphere, good location near the Latin Quarter/Gay Village. I'd stay here again.

It was pretty quiet and pretty empty when I stayed (13-15 April), but the staff made us welcome. I'd happily stay here again if I ever need to return to Quebec City (which is unlikely).

Nice atmosphere, especially considering the weather was pretty rubbish and many guests were bound to staying indoors. Warm & comfortable with a good kitchen and laundry.

Some staff were a lot more surly than at other hostels I've stayed at. Tours and excursions almost every day are a plus, and they turn the lounge into a bar in the evening. Lockers with power points are a plus. Not exactly a stand-out hostel, but it's functional.

I only stayed for one night and the city was horribly rainy, but the hostel bar had a pretty good atmosphere. I'd stay here again, but I won't be visiting Vancouver in February!

AWA Seattle Hostel, Seattle, USA

This place is and always has been called the "College Inn" - ignore this nonsense about the name of AWA Seattle Hostel, you won't see any signage for it. Pricey, but characterful. One morning the dining room was locked and I couldn't get my complimentary breakfast (no staff member anywhere), but otherwise it was pretty good. Many stairs to climb, so I wouldn't recommend it for the poor of knee. Creaky floorboards, but that's all part of the charm - it's been a hotel since 1909!

Because of the big sweeping common area and open plan layout, it's a great place to meet other travellers. It makes up for the small rooms with eight beds, because you don't spend much time there.

Nice enough. Very open-plan: you don't get a key, you simply buzz at reception if you're getting back late. The place wasn't particularly full in early February, but if it were I imagine that there would be a shortage of showers.

A couple of cabana huts, typical Mexican water pressure, but it's a pretty homely sort of place. Breakfast included in the morning. I was annoyed that having made arrangements to return my key and get my bond refund the night before (so I could leave early in the morning), there was no staff member on duty even though one is supposed to be on site until 10pm.
