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.

Probably my favourite hostel I’ve stayed in and definitely the nicest hostel showers I’ve ever used. The dorm bunks felt nice and private and the common area was super comfy and great staff as well!

Great place to stay, excellent hosts/ staff - really helpful and knowledgeable, extremely clean, everything I could ask for in a hostel. Awesome atmosphere and decor, very cool! I was arriving late by air, after hours, they made it very easy for me to access the building and my room, and departed at 3:00 am, no problem! All other guests and pets I encountered just enriched my experience. The best Hostel I've ever stayed at, and at 65, I've stayed at many. Highly reccomended The Haven to everyone
