I know that no one is going to take a 4 star review of a hostel seriously but read on please.
Firstly - YES this is a hostel but once you stay there you will understand.
I am a 60 something person who loves to talk with people - opportunities here for that if you take them. Mostly young people who love the hostel.
The free breakfast is simple for sure but it’s fresh and the eggs are basically fresh from the farm which I HARDLY EVER SEE UNLESS I AM EATING AT HOME.
The price is great especially when you think that it is located adjacent to the Rideau Centre - right downtown. The beds are comfortable and the surroundings are historic. The tour of the Jail is OK. If you want to cook yourself the facilities are certainly adequate and there are several supermarkets with 2-3 blocks.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Here’s the kicker - I have stayed there on 3 different occasions this year (I ddeliberately held off writing a review until I had stayed here in the winter) both summer and winter and the Jail always seems the same to me - FANTASTIC.
No, this isn’t a luxury hotel and YES I GIVE THIS PLACE A 4 STAR RATING.
Thanks for running this excellent hostel IH.More
