Groups Information

This is a good little hostel, pretty comparable to other HI's around North America I've stayed at. The house is certainly charming and it's in a very convenient location, an effortless walk from the city attractions. Dorms were spacious and there's a nice warm atmosphere at the kitchen table during breakfast. The showers in the top floor bathroom had minimal space, it was quite a challenge to get into the shower let alone dress myself afterwards (only a minor setback). Also: free potatoes!
