Liked: 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.

Disliked: It's far away from everything. Around 45 minuts by car from the Algonquin Park. There are no public transport every day. There are no bars or coffee shops. It's a really small village. It's and old building that maybe it need a deep reform.

Liked: Hello, I liked the host being friendly and helpful. I liked the coffee, "Sun Run Cafe", across the road. The available menue for Vegans. The cook impressed me so nicely knowing on the second day that I do not eat Dairies; the friendliness of the staff too. Talikng about Algonquin Backpakers: the room was clean and safe. There is a large room for dance, pool, Karaoke and a bar. Very good for young people. There was a living room with Internet and large screen TV. Lots of flyers to promote other hostels and the like literature. A very clean and tidy kitchen.

Disliked: I did not like the position of the building. It was at the main street. A lot of trucks during the day and night. I hopped for a quite place. I went also at a bad time. It was humid and a lot of bugs.

Liked: Tom and Nancy are very nice persons, gave us good hints for the trips we wanted to do. The hostels itselfe is a place with lots of atmosphere, wish I could have stayed there much longer. They have great huge beds and the rooms are decorated in a very nice oldfashioned style with flower-wallpaper ... I loved it there and would come back just right now.
