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

    This cozy, warm, charming hostel in St. John's made our stay so nice, we will be going right back there when we visit again. Thanks again to the awesome staff, Ayaz and Kieran, who made everything so smooth and easy for us.

    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.

    Had a lovely time at City Hostel, its in a great location being very close to both Signal Hill and the hiking trails as well as bars and restaurants on George Street. By far, the best part of the hostel were the staff who were very friendly, welcoming and fun to be around. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    Absolutely no atmosphere what so ever, this place seemed to me more like a half way house than a hostel. There was no communal area, regardless that COVID restrictions had lifted in the province. The hostel itself was dingey and uninviting, the one ‘member of staff’ who took payment from me was just a gentlemen in staying at the hostel whilst he was in full time education and honestly could have been anyone with a card reader. Very questionable hostel; did not feel comfortable here.
