"The village was very calm and quiet. You can relax and sleep a lot. And, there are no many people in the hostel, then there were no noise."

About Algonquin Backpackers

The Best little hostel near Algonquin Park

Imagine a time of steam engines and horse-drawn carriages, a time of lumberjacks and sawmills. This is the old Algonquin Park, a time when things moved a little slower and survival was a daily effort.

For over 100 years, The Arlington has served the little village of Maynooth, Ontario. It has served as safe haven for the region’s travel-weary guests, provided shelter for the thousands of resource workers that peppered the area, and served up some the best times at its notorious bar, The Shot and Bottle Lounge. That bar was expanded in 1953 and today hosts some of the best musicians in Ontario.

Now a clean and comfortable hostel, The Arlington plays host to travellers from around the world. These intrepid souls get to see the other side of Algonquin Park, the side less travelled. But they also get to step back in history and walk the streets of a century-old logging town. So book a room with us and see what all the fuss is about!

Or as we like to say… See you at The Arlington!

Location Information
