Excellent location in the old town, harbour and Arts sector. Very informative, helpful and friendly staff. Got an excellent deal with the Seaplanes via the hostel. Room was comfortable, kitchen facilities excellent and guests very sociable. Well organised hostel. Museum, cafe's and harbour all within easy walking distance. Overall our favourite hostel during our stay in Canada.
