    A great home away from home feel. I love smaller, independently owned hostels like this! The staff were amazing, really good kitchen and communal spaces and over all just a nice homely chilled vibe.

    ignore the reviewer below me she is fake news. this is a good hostel. Milan is a good host and nice person. the hostels vibe will always depend on the people staying there at the time, luckily in my case people were nice aside from those few weirdos still scared of covid and wearing their masks like obedient little puppies. location is great although there are some sketchy crackheads all around but that is ottawa overall. bathrooms are perfect, rooms are good, no complaints about cleanliness.

    The atmosphere wasn’t that great when we were there. Lot of people wasn’t even saying hello but, this isn’t the guesthouse’s fault after all. The kitchen is pretty convenient with a lot of things to cook and there’s plenty of sofas in the living room. The thing where they can improve for me is the cleanliness. Bathrooms wasn’t that great neither were the bedrooms. Lot of dust and lost stuff as long as nails from the window under the bed. We had a balcony which couldn’t be lock at night too

    Never felt so unsafe and uncomfortable in a hostel. Had to leave early because I couldn’t stay the length of time I had planned because the environment felt unsanitary and had a dodgy atmosphere
