We stayed in Hi-Halifax for four nights. First of all, the price of this hostel is awesome. I think we paid less than $30 a night each total, which is great considering it was in the middle of July! The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hostel itself is a very charming building. It has a lot of character, and there are a lot of common spaces to relax and hang out in. There is no breakfast, but there is a big kitchen and a supermarket right down the street. However, we did see a mouse in the kitchen at one point (but this comes with it being an old building).
The best part of the hostel was the location. It was a quick walk to the boardwalk, waterfront, and basically anywhere downtown that you would want to go! There are many restaurants and a nice coffee shop just a few doors down too.
Our room was in the basement, which was nice because it stayed relatively cool. However, because we were right by the balcony outside, it was often noisy, and smelled like cigarette smoke. Besides that, the room was spacious, the lockers were big, and the beds were actually very comfy!
This is probably one of the best values in Halifax, and we'd recommend it!More
