    Had a very nice weekend in Ottawa thanks to this hostel! It's a 5-10min walk away from the Byward Market, the Canal and the Parliament, so the location's awesome. The staff was also really nice and helpful and the premises very clean!

    It was great! Friendly staff, peaceful neighborhood. Wanted to stay longer and just chill. I came for one night to renew my visa and would love to return to explore some more. I felt comfortable and at home there.
