Property Description

City Hostel is located right in the middle of downtown St.John's, only 5 minutes walk to the waterfront and a 10 minute walk from George Street and all the other major amenities (like you'll need anything else!). City Hostel is owned and operated by two experienced travelers who saw a need for a hostel within their hometown.

We provide a friendly atmosphere based on our own travel experiences and try to minimize the hassle that we dislike so much about travelling! We provide local information and tour/sightseeing discounts on site.

We offer private and dormitory rooms at very reasonable prices.

City Hostel is located such that you'll almost certainly never need to use any form of public transport to get around, because it's within a few minutes walk from everything! View House Rules

    I loved my week stay here. Tina and the volunteers make it feel like home, not some sterile hostel.

    City hostel was a great place to stay in St. John's! Great location, fantastic rooms, and the staff were really nice (though sometimes difficult to identify who was staff and who was a traveller :P). Dave, the owner, was awesome!! When I left my hat there after my trip, he mailed it back to Ontario! Thanks Dave :)

    Very Good

    Nice, basic, well-maintained hostel, everything is kept clean and I had no issues during my 4 night stay here: the location is also good for both downtown, signal hill and Quidi Vidi village. As others have commented, it is difficult to distinguish guests from staff, and, as I checked in quite late, I never really got a handle on who worked there, and, if they did work there, whether it was their shift or not. Note that no breakfast is served here and the kitchen only fits 3 people at a time.

    It being the only hostel in the city technically both means it isthe best and the worst. I have stayed in a lot of hostels and this is the second worst. Though it is the only one, so I guess you’ll have to book. Just don’t have high expectations on cleanliness. It’s not gross, but it’s not exactly comfy.

    I think the “staff” needs to have a moral boost and be more professional. I wasn’t give a tour of the hostel, I was just “told”. Window to my room was wide open, and since the heat wasn’t on, chilly my entire stay once I figured out to close it (the actual way to close it is broken). Lock was broken on my room door. half hearted invited to “salsa” which seemed personal. Not hostel related. Also a older gentleman likes to watch ppl shower from across the street. Terrible experience.
