Groups Information

Great little hostel in downtown St. John's. The staff is great, very friendly and welcoming, and it's within walking distance from almost everything you need. Very clean, and homey. And awesome as you're staying in an old Jelly Bean Row house.

With a hostel, you’ll get a comfy place to sleep, kitchen facilities to help you feed yourself while sticking to a budget, hot showers and you’ll still get to meet other backpackers along the way (and maybe pick up a new passenger), which is a heck of a lot better than trying to sleep in your car.
