    The location can't be beat, close to all the major sights and things to do in Halifax. There is a big communal kitchen, everything is well organized, very friendly staff. It was warm in the male dorm room where I was staying but still ok (I stayed there in early August). Beds are ok but nothing special. Bathrooms were clean.

    Lockers require your own padlock (or you can buy one) Parking on the street is a little tricky around (paid parking).

    I arrived on an early flight and was able to store my luggage while I explored Halifax until check-in. For a busy hostel in July, it was quieter than I expected. Everyone was friendly and the wi-fi reception was excellent!

    Kitchen facilities were very good, as was the dining area. A nice bit out the back with benches too. The staff were very helpful. Wifi access very good throughout. Good central location.

    Room wasn't exactly spacious and the lockers are only for valuables not entire backpack.

    Location was great being so close to the Via rail terminal, and also for walking to the water front and main attractions. Good friendly hostel for meeting people.

    The room I was in (118) had its window backing on to where people smoked outside which, when the window was open, wasn't great for me as a non smoker. Kitchen layout is a bit cumbersome - not well thought out but not a major issue. Could do with self locking doors - security wasn't an issue but you had to physically lock the dorm room door, and I am not sure everyone in the room realised this.

    For a solo traveler, the price is right.

    Shared quarters are not what I have always dreamed about

    basket system for storing food in communal fridge, location was ideal for my plans, was able to store my bags temporarily after check out so I didn't have to carry them with me, free local/toll free telephones in lobby

    lack of parking, mattress was thin so I could feel the slats beneath,

    The staff was very helpful at all times.TV and reading room excellent. The provision of reasonably priced parking space was a huge bonus.

    I was expecting to arrive after midnight for my first night (I actually arrived at 2.40am), so my booking had been processed through the 'late arrival protocol'. This was done over the phone with hostel staff. Even though my card was charged successfully there and then, a few minutes later I was asked via email to email my credit card details for the hostel's records. This I found 'bad business', as it is inherently insecure for a number of reasons I could even begin to list here. I was in a highway cafeteria with free wifi, and I still had a 350km drive to Halifax. This request made me feel uncertain about my booking status and whether or not I had secured a place to sleep, considering that I was driving in a blizzard for 13hrs total, in a small car. Not nice.

    Good place to stay in Halifax, situated in the city centre, close to the train station. The house is very nice... Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Very good staff too !

    Great location- 5 minute walk from train station, 10 minute walk to the harbour. Bathrooms were very clean.

    Bunk beds were a little outdated- matress was flat and hard, ladder to climb onto the top bunk is just the wooden panels at the end of the bed.

    The mattresses were comfortable.

    It was freezing cold because a window was stuck open, and the female staff refused to even entre the room to look at. When I took my sheets to the washer and the cleaner told me I leave the blankets on the bed :p Gross. I paid like 80$ for a single. Too much in Canada.

    Large kitchen and space to eat. The place was kept spotless. Nice courtyard area to sit out and the TV room is great to relax in. Very good supermarket just 5 minute walk from the hostel! Great!

    HI making travellers pay an extra fee if they are not members is very annoying. This wasn't really value for money either with there being no breakfast included. Staff seemed a bit disinterested. Felt quit cramped in the room I was in.

    The kitchen was a great space too cook in, even if multiple travelers were attempting to do so at one time. It was a pretty consistent hostel with everything HI I've ever stayed in. They stick to a reliable formula so after staying in one, you pretty much know what you'll get at the next one. They're also around the block from the bus and via rail station so budget travelers only have a very short walk.

    No real complaints. Bring earplugs if street noise keeps you awake at night.
