          The hostel is cheap and located close to St John's Centre. We walked everywhere from there. On the downside, its pretty small and not the cleanest. We had booked a particular ensuite room and had to insist on the reservation being honoured - seems they'd...More

          Great little hostel in downtown St. John's. The staff are great, very friendly and welcoming, and it's within walking distance from almost everything you need. Very clean, and homey. And awesome as you're staying in an old Jelly Bean Row house.

          One of St John's famous jellybean houses, so called for their bright colours. Clean rooms, comfy beds, hot showers and guest kitchen. Great, friendly, helpful staff.

          Yes, same happened my first night. They have a mailbox for late check ins for your key, and email you the door code when you book if you'll be arriving late.
