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

    It was an exceptionally friendly place. Very well situated for walking to attractions in St John’s. Just around the corner from Coffee Matters—good coffee, good food.

    we'd highly recommend for people of all ages groups. staffs will accommodate your needs if you give them advance notice. in our case, we have seniors in our group with mobility issues, therefore, they offered us a room located in the main floor. it worked, because then they don't have to worry about having to constantly running up/downstairs agitating their knees. thank-you for being considerate & understanding!! :))))

    Such a warm welcoming atmosphere and lovely people; both staff and guests. I loved that the hostel was in a row home, felt very true to St Johns history.

    I absolutely LOVED my stay at City Hostel Saint John's. Although I only stayed there for 1 night (2 times), the people there were super friendly to me. The whole place makes you feel at home right away. It's almost family-like and I can imagine that if someone would stay there for a longer period they would absolutely feel like their family has grown ;). Thank you guys for making my stay there one of the best ones I had in Canada!

    I stayed out of season so it was not as crowded as it might be. There are only 2 bathrooms with showers, so if the hostel is full, that’s probably a problem. Really nice staff and fellow travellers. Bed was comfy but a bit squeaky.

    Nice hostel! It was lovely having a private room. The bathrooms could have been kept a bit cleaner, and our bunk bed was pretty creaky, but overall, good stay for the price.
