  • Shelly/Patrick are the warmest hosts who've put their hearts into their hostel. Expect handcrafted bunkbeds, hand-drawn maps to non-tourist areas, endless funny stories, and a hearty greeting every time you walk through the door like you're coming home to family. Above & beyond- Shelly even made up a breakfast bag the night before we left because we had to be out of the door at 5am. Stay here! (No electricity sometimes as others say, b/c they're converting to solar energy. Pros outweigh this!)

  • Faith in humanity has been restored because of the two lovely owners, Patrick and Shelley. They took the time to get to know you and even give some really awesome advice on the side of Niagara less seen. Instead of expensive touristy excursions, they suggested hiking along the niagara river and the Ice House winery. Patrick even drew us a "participatory map" of how to get to the recommended places. Hostel is going under some renovations, but the beds are very comfortable and it's very clean!

  • Patrick (the owner) is very helpful and warmhearted. Room is cozy and clean. Location is great. It takes about ten min to walk to the Fall and take cruise. It is also very quiet during the night time. It is a family-style hostel. So you may not expect a modern interior design. However, it is totally worth the price and I did enjoy my stay.

  • When I visited this hostel there was no electricity. There was simply an extension cord running from a generator -- but only when we asked. The water only worked in the bathroom, but there were too many people there for me to take a shower. My friend hurt herself showering in the dark! The window wouldn't open and there was no AC so I got little sleep and was drenched in sweat. Even locked, our door wouldn't stay shut and people could walk in. Also, my ALL GIRLS room had a man in it.

  • I can't really give the hostel itself a rewiew because I never got to experience it. In the evening before my arrival day I got a email from the owner who canceled me my accomodation for the night, as he said 'due to circumstances beyond our control'. At least he gave me an alternative hostel to stay for the night which was unfortunately 25 then 5 minutes walk from the falls. But otherwise the new accomodation was good and I also could have use the good bus connection.

  • A Wonderful hostel nestled in a tourist town. Clean and safe hostel.The staff are very friendly, gracious and supportive to your stay in Niagra Falls. The hostel is just minutes from all tourist attractions. There are plenty of places to hike, bicycle or walk to that go outside the town itself. A photographer's dream of all the pretty landscapes that surround the Niagra Falls region!!!. A definite destination that you will want to come back to again and again!!! Gary H. U.S.A.

  • It was a cold day and the heater was not working well. The water was cold. I suffered to take a shower and I had to sleep wearing jeans, jacket and base layer.

  • I never imagined staying in a hostel would feel so safe, and welcoming. It really was like staying with a family friend. I have told my fiancé I am not sure I ever want to stay in a regular hotel again. I had a great time.

  • From the outside I was a bit afraid but then inside: Just amazing amazing amazing! Everybody was friendly, breackfast (Fresh fruit!!) was included, very nice bathroom. The rooms itself felt more than a Hotel than a hostel room.
