What travellers think
It is an awesome hostel and one of the best HI Hostels I stayed up to now during my time in Canada. The hostel is only a few minutes from downtown and the C-Train Station away. All rooms (washroom, bed dorm, games room & reading room, kitchen) are very clean and very nice furnished.

Hotel was great, only issue I'd state is how smelly the rooms can get as a result of lack of ventilation. Got moved once, but as a result of many local workers staying and people involved in winter sports, every morning was greeted with a lingering smell. The staff however were very attentive and did what they could, but unfortunately the only way around it is to open the windows and embrace the winter!
