They will charge you 185$ for the week. You can get a guesthouse on Air BNB (we went to "On The River" at 136 Duporth Ave) for the same price. You have to additionally pay for the use of their van (5-10$ a week per person) so they are making way more money off the use of their transport than...

These items were not in the room. the Double bed was a Single base with Double mattress so you fell off if you rolled over in bed, The smell of marijuana was overpowering and there was smoking implements and beer bottles left on...

Loved staying in this hostel for 5mths last year. It is a nice relaxed hostel with a lot of long-term occupants. This means that you get to make great friends from all over the world rather than just having to meet new people daily and having the same conversations over and over! The rooms are basic but exactly what u...

We were only around a few days and the place is very average. We even had a problem with the door not locking properly. The manager who was very new fixed this for us and it was great to see him running around making the backpackers better, as well as doing his best to keep us happy and others He...

Although the lady on recetion was friendly enough, overall the stay was terrible. There were no working lights in the room. We had booked a double room but were given a double bed in a dorm room with just a little curtain. Luckily it was not too busy and the other beds were unoccupied, but we were not told of...

Overall would have been a good stay, but The owner is a terrible rude man who has no business running a backpackers. He is rude and cruel to his staff and even to paying guests. Tries to intimidate females especially. Stay far away!!!

The old building, poor ventilation, old and stained bedsheets, over-used amenities greet the backpackers in a fair distance from anything. The room was 3m x 3m, had a bunk bed (there was two of us travelling), a from the last century and a small bedside table. These were enough to fill the room up, which was so humid that we...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights. Basic hostel with 4 bed dorms and free breakfast. The staff were friendly but didn't do much to keep people quiet at night despite the numerous signs posted on the walls telling people to be silent after 10pm. The hostel was mostly young backpackers staying long term. Some had little consideration...
