Liked: Helpful and friendly staff, very good location for sight-seeing (20 to 30-minute walk to the Falls), clean house with a homey atmosphere, close to a great Chinese restaurant (Chu's) and a big supermarket. The place is air-conditioned and there are safety lockers available if you bring your own lock. Also, you get free pancakes in the morning!

Disliked: Relatively long distance from the train station if that is where you arrive at - let the owners bring you to the house in the scheduled hours or let them order you a cab if they can't come.

Liked: Staff are really helpful and friendly with great suggestions of how to make the most of your time here! Also fantastic location, really close to the falls.

Disliked: Depends what you are looking for from a hostel, it is a converted house so is quite small, feels very homely!- so if you are looking for a party hostel probably not the place for you!

Liked: Great location, only a 10 minute walk to Niagara Falls and a 5 minute walk from the bus station. The staff were very helpful and friendly, giving information on the area and answered any questions I had. The hostel itself was very welcoming and could easily make myself at home! There are lockers to store your valuables and the beds are very comfy. I would definitely recommend this hostel to friends and other travellers.

Liked: A friendly welcome from the moment I made my booking was continued when I arrived and throughout my stay. The house is nicely decorated and very clean. There is also a good supermarket close by. After breakfast pancakes I could leave my luggage at the hostel until 6pm giving me the day to explore before I headed over to Canada. The American side does have some good points (Maid of the Mist is cheaper and Cave of the Winds is good too) and while the views are undoubtedly on the Canadian side this hostel is a good reason to stay with the Americans.

Disliked: Nothing.
