“Cool place, great hospitality!”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

I stayed here with 3 friends on my first trip to Newfoundland. It was also a first night in Newfoundland, and because of this stay, we experience Newfoundland hospitality from our very arrival to the rock! When we called ahead of time to ask about the hostel we were told that the hostel was closed, but the man offered to open it up for us having known we were coming. The hostel being in an old hospital is very unique. They have converted the building to quite a community centre including a library, a physiotherapy office, and multiple organizations' offices. When the man let us in he gave us a thorough tour of the centre, showing us old equipment from the hospital such as the old x-ray machine. They are working on creating a museum in the centre as well. The hostel was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. I hope to return to Gros Morne National Park one day and there is my definite choice of lodging!

Room Tip: The dorm room is like an old ER room with individual beds surrounded by curtains. Upstairs they have...

Reviewed 26 October 2012

We stayed here in August 2011. We were a group of 3 girls traveling across Newfoundland and were given our own ward room. The beds and bedside tables are original from the old hospital, and we loved that we had our own curtains for privacy. It was clear they tried to keep the hospital feel. The only downside we found was lack of security. We wished we could have had a lock on our door as we were a group of girls but instead had the old swing doors where anyone could just walk in. We ended up making our own "security system" using empty beer cans lined up in front of the doors. Also,there were no curtains in our bathroom so at night we went to the washroom with the lights off so others, who were outside, couldn't see us!
Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a ward room if traveling with others
