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!

Thanks to Jeff and the staff for the great Newfoundland hospitality! Some of the reasons for the lower score is the lack of common areas. Some of the common areas in the pictures have been converted to rooms. The kitchen is quite tiny in the basement. And the biggest groan would be that there is only 1 total shower for the entire hostel and 2 total toilets. Best to go at odd hours! Staff was great and friendly, location is super central on Jellybean Row.

The location is great!! Apart from that, unfortunately there's only one shower for the whole hostel so that's a bit of a burden. The front door was unlocked at night, which I didn't think was super safe. Definitely not the best hostel I've been to, but for the price it's alright! Also, there is no parking on the property, you need to park in the streets.

I recently stayed at city hostel and had a great experience. The staff was friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean and well-maintained, and the location was convenient for exploring the city. The dormitory was comfortable and the atmosphere was welcoming. I enjoyed the communal kitchen and the organized activities that allowed me to meet other travelers. The only minor downside was the slightly weak Wi-Fi signal in some areas. Overall, I would recommendit to anyone looking
