The hostel é a big house 2 floors, beautiful and confortable, everything new and clean. I missed just a stove in the kitchen, but has microwave so i could use it, and coffee machine and fridge. They clean the house everyday and change the towels. The checkin was fast and people very friendly, but they need a credit card as guarantee, so you must have one. The location is very good, near supermarket and bus stop, i loved stay there.

Good 6,0
Clean hostel, comfortable bed. New towels offered daily. Probably your best best deal in Ottawa. Good wifi. It would help if there was a hot plate for cooking. Also, though there was no noise when I was there, I can image it getting a little rowdy, as all the rooms are closely connected. Still a good place to stay.

Wonderfully Clean Awesome Staff
I stayed at the hostel for ten days to take care of business in Canada. The staff was exceptional. They helped me a lot. The hostel was incredibly clean, and the bedding and towels were of good quality. Unfortunately, there is no laundry or clothesline. Some hostellers complained about the area. The people with addiction and mental health issues live nearby. They can be sad to see, but they don't bother the people living in the hostel. In fact, if you say hello to them, they respond. All in all, I had a wonderful experience on the hostel and will stay again next time I'm in Ottawa.
