Liked: Martin is very kind and accommodating, as were the other staff on site. Great patios out front and back, literally a block away from the byward market area and dozens of bars and restaurants. Close to a bus stop, and University of Ottawa. The A/C in the South America room made a world of difference too on the humid days I was there. Great place!

Liked: A really nice place! The location is great (pretty near the main attractions like the Parliament etc.), the rooms and common areas are nice, and the staff is also friendly. I really can recommend Ottawa Backpackers Inn!

Disliked: The bed was not the most confortable I have slept in, but I still could have a good-night-sleep. =)
