Loved the location of this hostel, so closely situated to transport and to downtown shops as well as a very large and well equipped supermarket (Atlantic superstore) barely even 400m down the road from the hostel.
I found the hostel charming, the exteriors are old but well kept looking like a heritage building should be. My bed(s) were both comfortable to sleep in.
Staff were friendly and helpful - they were happy to help me book tours and when I left Halifax for 2 nights on tour, looked after my extra luggage free of charge.
Bathrooms were clean and the female showers downstairs were great. Only comment I'd make is that they were so intent on cleanliness that they were cleaning it regularly in the morning at 8:15ish and closing the bathroom off.. A little inconvenient if you really need to use it before leaving for any early start tours.
Really clean and well equipped kitchen, great open dining space also that was a great scene for chatting with fellow travellersMore
