Maynooth Hostel

Hostel Maynooth

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI-South Algonquin is located in the heart of the Algonquin Highlands, surrounded by lakes, forest and unspoiled scenery on the edge of Algonquin Park.

Hostel guests can make use of a fully-equipped guest kitchen, a pool table, satellite TV, laundry, Internet and a large book selection. In the evening unwind and mingle over a pint of beer in the hostel’s licensed bar and maybe become a star at Open Mic night or at Karaoke night organized by the hostel.

This hostel is a fantastic little gateway for exploring the area whether it’s seeing a bear, doing some interior camping, or experiencing the nature and history of the area. Explore Algonquin Park – go hiking, biking or canoeing in summer and cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in winter. Step back in history and walk the streets of a century-old logging town that is still very much ‘off the beaten path’.

I think you cannot call this a Hi hostel. it is very, very dirty. Sanitary, kitchen and floor are very, vey dirty. Taps and shower don't work, Lamps are broken, A very bad experience. I'll never come there again.

Das Hostel hat eine Bar in der am Wochenende Konzerte stattfinden können. In unserem Fall ein Heavy Metal Konzert. An Schlaf war bis 1 Uhr nicht zu denken. Alles total hellhörig. Ein Rockkonzert direkt unter den Zimmern geht garnicht!!!

The address provided by HiHostels doesn't exist, I just realized it when I got in the city. I tried to search on google maps, but it also shows a wrong location. I tried to call the hostel, but nobody picked up the phone. after a lot of search on google, I found that the hostel is actually called "The Arlington", I finally got in the hostel 9:30pm, but there was no staff anymore in the reception desk. The hostel was empty, just one room with one guy. I never expected it from a Hi Hostel.

Grossartige Unterkunft fuer Touren in den nahegelegenen Algonquin Park. Alle Basics einer Unterkunft sind vorhanden. Die gemeinsamen Waschraeume sind sauber und gross. Der Ort selbst ist natuerlich eher verschlafen, aber die Zweckmaessigkeit der Herberge einfach spitze!

Very friendly unique place.We have been overwhelmed by the locals .You really get a sense of community there, lovely place, great atmospher. A hostel with a heart! I would just say shop for groceries on way there as local shop has limited supplies-all essentials are there but no fresh fruit for example.
