Groups Information

No complaints about this place at all really. The location is very convenient. 5mins to VIA rail and maritime bus. Close to local bus stops. 5mins from huge supermarket and 10mins to waterfront. Bars and restaurants all around. Hostel itself is very clean and comfortable. Kitchen and common areas are clean. Free wifi is a bit patchy when lots of people are around but it still works. Rooms are well maintained and the staff are all lovely and super helpful.

Five unreal and unexpected surfing destinations around the world

Surfing, you say? Sure we all know surfing, that sport that all the chiseled cool kids do in places like Hawaii and California where they all hang ten. These popular places buzz with protective locals, as well as tourists from all over the world for a reason:  they’re home to perfect surf conditions with jaw-dropping scenery. However as travelers, we’re always looking for new and exciting experiences, so try taking a chance and steer clear from the cliché spots. You might find something wonderful.

Great Canadian Road Trip Tips

HI hostels  are all over the country at ideal stopping points. 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.
