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!

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!! :)
