Stayed here in January, on way from Chicago to Toronto. It was very cold and I was travelling on my own. Hostel is a little distance from the main area with the hotels and shops, but there is a frequent bus even in the winter. Staff and breakfast were great, met some fantastic people. Best part was that my bus didn't leave till 5pm the next day and the staff had no problems letting me stay and sit in front of the fire and drink coffee, so I didn't have to wait in the cold bus station. Would definitely recommend.

we stayed there for two nights on or way from NY to Toronto. The staff is super friendly an the hostel is great, especially the kitchen. The bus terminal is just around the corner. To the falls it's a good half hour to walk but there is a bus too.
the hostel is located outside the tourist area where live is normal, nice and cheaper.

This hostel is well located in a residential area close to Niagara Falls and the Rainbow Bridge which includes a walking bridge to Canada (passport required). The hostel has off street parking in back and a helpful manager. Upon checkin I was issued a sheet sleeping sack and map of the area. Ask for a towel if you need one. The bed had a well worn blanket and pillow. The bathroom and kitchen were of very cheap construction. The mirrors were cheap and too high for me to see myself. No towels in the bathroom. The entry, stairway and dining areas boast nice woodwork, but you have to overlook the hostel's deficiencies and appreciate its location near the falls. Next time I would try the hostel on the Canadian side. The view of Niagara Falls from the Canadian side is much better than from the American side and the night light show would be better viewed from there as well. The Maid of the Mist from the American side is cheaper and gives the same ride. The falls are awesome. Though the hostel has deficiencies it does provide cheap accommodation.

We stayed here in October 2009. Yes, it's taken me a while but I finally remembered to review.

This is not a family place, even though they have a "family room." The family room is a standard bunk set, and a another with double under and single over. There is less than 1 metre at the end of the beds and between as well. Getting 5 people and their luggage in the room was really tough! The beds were foam on those wire and spring bases, incredibly uncomfortable and very saggy.

The family room is right over the front terrace that they show in the pictures, this is where everyone congregates on nice nights to drink, sing and play guitars. About the worst place for a family room as the noise kept us awake until 2am.

We got up and down to the kitchen by 9am to have the free breakfast, most of the food was gone, the kitchen lights wouldn't work and there were no staff around to help.

The recreation room downstairs was well stocked with things to do, but really dirty.

They tried to charge us double what was quoted by email, I had to argue long and hard to get the correct price.

To top it off, this was weekday out of season, and we could have got a room at many of the motels in town for the same or less than we paid. We are not room snobs and have had many pleasant hostelling experiences with our children. This one was definitely the worst ever!

The hostel has an excellent staff customer service and location. Many people complains about the 15 minutes walk to the falls, but the scenery its so worth it! You can rent a bike for a day and not just go the falls, but to bike to Niagara on the lake (It takes 2 Hrs. but trust me your eyes will be delighted), you will love it.(There is also buses to go to Niagara on the lake for 15 Dlrs or so and the staff can make a reservation for you, and in the city you would be able to take public transport for $2.75 or a day pass on sale at the reception for $6Dlrs. The hostel also offers wine tours and BBQs in the Afternoons which makes it easier to meet people. Its near from the bus and train station and in the summer if you are coming from Toronto you can ride either for just $15 Dlrs. The rooms are clean and have AC, the kitchen its fantastic. Super secure hostel and great basement with Pool table, Vending Machines and a Huge plasma TV with DVD, they also offer for free great movies in case its a rainy day and tons of table games if you fancy a quiet afternoon. Michael Ale and Olivier are the best hostess you will find very helpful and Joyful. You can find the Liquor store 5 minutes walking and excellent restaurants on Queen Street (Ask for Mide Bistro). Casinos offer great shows at night and a great all you can eat buffet for $20 Dlrs., the Wild Mushroom situated on Victoria is the best place to hang out at night for some cheap and friendly drinks, same recommendation for Taps on Queen Street. and the best attraction is the Maid of the Mist, you will be able to buy your tickets at the Front Desk for $40 or so Dlrs. and it would include 3 more attractions and Transportation (dont forget to ask for it to the staff) $15 Dlrs. for the single trip at the Maid of the Mist. (So i really recommend the Package.)
Ps. Dont forget to buy your Hostelling Membership as well, it will save you tons of money on your trips with greyhound (Specially on those Monthly passes) and accommodation at Hostelling.
