Liked: There was a lot I liked about the property. The colors, the game room, the beautiful room we stayed in. The kitchen was a great size and I really enjoyed that there was a dining room right next door. There was a great sense of community throughout the hostel. All in all, I had a lovely stay.

Disliked: It was nothing personal with the hostel, but the town of Niagara itself freaked me out a bit. But other than that the hostel itself was amazing. Maybe look into slightly updating the basement because it seemed like it's been slightly out of use for a while. But overall a great place.

Liked: Nothing wearily, maybe because its close to the train station

Disliked: It was low season, but the whole building could use a spring cleaning, 6 bed dorms are to small and very noisy beds Bathrooms could use a bit of renovation Chalkboard still with things to do from last summer (need an update) Worst HI hostel ever stayed in
