    The common room space is great, the quad bunk beds are comfortable but the room is very small. There is no air conditioning and that can be uncomfortable when sharing such close quarters. The parking in the area is abundant. I was lucky to get...More

    Although this advertises as air conditioned, ONLY the downstairs has air conditioning, NOT the rooms. The rooms are small, with people packed in close and it was so so hot inside at night (and not even that warm outside). No one could sleep that night--...More

    Nice and comfortable hostel with a modern common area. Highly recommend! Close to a supermarket, Starbucks, Dollorama and Tim Hortons. You can do everything by walking. Near to by market which is an important pub and restaurants area.
