* As a senior travelling I don't have funds to use hotels and have been very happy with the reception I've received at the hostels. I appreciate that older people are not left out but are welcomed. * I was happy to see the location of the hostel - easy to find and very close to Halifax Harbour, VIA Rail, Greyhound Bus, car rental. I was able to walk everywhere.

If the kitchen were left open overnight, it would be helpful for people leaving early in the morning or arriving late. The 7:30am opening is a little bit inconvenient for early risers.

The bed was comfortable and the bathrooms were fine. However, when I booked, I thought there was parking available, but there are only three spots, all of which were full by the time I arrived. The room was quite noisy---it faces the road and there was major road construction going on. In the morning, the women's bathroom on my floor was closed for cleaning---why not clean it midday, when bathroom traffic is low? I had to go up three flights of stairs to use a mixed sexes bathroom.

The front desk staff was very impolite, indifferent and even unhelpful - especially the girl with dark curly hair (e.g. refused to organize a room switch, even though there were enough beds available - checking with a different staff member the next day revealed it was no problem at all). The blond haired guy was also very indifferent, but the girl with blond curly hair was friendly. She didn't know too much about the city though (e.g. didn't know shops were closed on Sundays).
