This is a very homey and comfortable hostel. I would have no hesitation to stay here again. The only problem I had was that the rooms were very hot and stuffy. Air conditioning has been disconnected and the ceiling fans were not adequate to keep the air moving. I would like to see fans in the rooms by the beds.

HI-Niagara Falls Hostel, Niagara Falls, Canada

16th Jul 2015

This hostel is well situated just a couple of blocks from the bus and train station, upon arrival at Niagara Falls. And it is just a ten minute transit bus ride away from the tourist centre of the Niagara Falls area. I had a bicycle and it was an easy ride from the centrally located hostel to the falls and many other things in the area. The hostel is well equipped and self contained. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would be happy to stay here again next time I'm in the area.

Great staff. Very accommodating. Nice party atmosphere in the evenings. Space is at a premium along the Atlantic beaches of Rio, granted, so space was very limited in rooms. Superb location. Hated the stairs from floors 4 to 5 & 6. Elevator as far as 4th ok. Bathroom sink & shower faucets, and shower heaters need maintenance. Would stay again, except for during inflated price periods at New Year's, Carnival.

My room 'A' was hot & stuffy. Better ventilation would be greatly appreciated. Also, in this modern age, with everyone having at least one device (smart phone, tablet, camera, GPS, etc), EACH bed should have its own receptacle for charging; this is a priority! It's not enough to leave a device with the gracious front desk overnight; people like to monitor their texts and emails overnight. Each bed should also have it's own reading lamp. Overall, a very good place, with a few refinements needed

1. Beef up the Wi-Fi so that it can handle the load 2. Since the toilets are in separate rooms in the hall, with no sink for washing hands, provide hand sanitizer in the toilet rooms so that fecal contamination won't be transferred unto the toilet room door knobs, and many other things around the hostel. This is important! 3. There should be a TV room with comfy chairs + movies 4. Common areas should be open 24 hrs 5. Indoor common area should be larger to accommodate more people, esp in winter

This is a great place to stay, whether just for an overnight \"in-transit\" sojourn, or for several days to rest, relax, and research the next part of your trip. I\'ve never been to a hostel that has been more accommodating. Alex, Carolina, Cynthia, and even their taxi-driver Oscar, really went out of their way to provide five star service. Highly recommended.
