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.
