Property Description

*** PRIORITY NOTE -- When making a booking we NEED you to put your phone number in the booking... Why?! We have an amazing door code system that uses that number to generate a private code for you, cool huh?***

Thunder Bay's only downtown hostel is here! Covid is easing up and we are running more efficiently than ever :)

Whether you love the outdoors, music, art, history, or some of the best food and brew northwestern Ontario has to offer, we can get you sorted. Or if you want to sit in with us and drink coffee (we love coffee), you can enjoy all the amenities your haven has to offer. Now including a great little courtyard with firepit!

We are located on the North Shore of Lake Superior, one of the most beautiful beautiful outdoor meccas in Ontario. Our lakefront is one block away and we are neighbors to all that downtown has to offer. We boast that we have the greatest staff, always smiling, and always here to help you with your trip planning.

We have three private queen rooms complete with en suite bathrooms, 2 POD dormitories and two rustic bunk bed dormitories. We are also now offering our dormitories to private groups and families at a great discount! All guests of the dormitories have access to brand new bathrooms that are super chic. We have a huge common area that allows for all the space, comfort, and coziness - comes complete with a fluffy mohawked golden doodle.

Staff are very helpful and friendly. Atmosphere is very relaxing. The hostel is in a quiet part of downtown PA a short walk from the waterfront and easily accessible by bus.

This might be simply the best hostel in North America. The staff are super, really go out of their way to know you and be available if you need any help. Kitchen and common area are pleasant and well outfitted. Everything is super clean. I stayed in the capsules, which sometimes freak me out as claustrophobic, but this one was very big, spacious, and felt like own little space in the dorm. Free parking! And the place is beautifully decorated. Lots of bars and restaurants, and Landing, walkable.

I was shocked to find such an amazing hostel in Thunder Bay. I have travelled and stayed in hostels all over the world this hostel is welcoming, clean, and comfortable. The front desk staff was very helpful and answered any questions I had. I stayed in the four bedroom female dorm - beds were extra comfy! Would highly recommend this hostel to others.
