Liked: It feels like a house, also is very clean big rooms, and only few people staying. The location is excellent just near byward market and the parliament!

Disliked: Nothing! Is one of the best hostel I ever stayed. Maybe just be careful if you walk at night near the are specially Rideau st, many drunk homeless around asking for money

Liked: This hostel is really close to Byward Market and many grocery stores so that it is easy to travel and get some foods. Of course, the facilities are decent as well as location. I really enjoyed staying here!! :)

Disliked: In Ottawa, there are not that many people at night. (even around 10) So after watching parliament light show, I was kind of scared when I get back to the hostel because there was not that many people but many homeless people on the street.

Liked: Good location, great facilities, comfortable beds and relax atmosphere.

Disliked: The check-in is a bit too late (15:00). It would be great if it could be a bit earlier. Otherwise, I thought that there was a lot of little flies inside, which was a bit annoying (and on the walls in the bathroom).
