Impression mitigée
November 19, 2014

Très bon accueil, mais quelques ratés au niveau de la propreté des locaux communs (salles de bain, canapés, odeur d'urine de chat au salon).

Very comfortable and clean stay
October 22, 2014

I came from Toronto and stayed for a night. My experience here was really comfortable, the beds were tidy, each has its own light and wall jack, and it was in downtown, so everything was close to me. However, the most outstanding feature for me as a doctor was the level of cleanliness. First, you have to leave your shoes at the entrance door, then they give you new sheets, one for the bed, the... more

*1.5 stars* (and I'm being generous)

We only wanted a place to rest our heads and wash, and this place sufficed for that.

The bed was really comfortable and the bedroom, although a bit dusty and cobwebby, was sufficiently clean. Same with the bathroom. The location of the hostel is superb. The wifi was good, and we were given towels for free instead of being asked to pay the $2 rental fee.

Felt like being in a horror movie, but I guess that's how a hostel should be ... 1st and last time!

crowded hotel with relatively high price
August 19, 2014

the check in time was arranged at 1pm,but after some delays, we actually finally checked in at 1.50 probably due to their busy work caused by few stuff but too many visitors as can be easily detected from the discovery of piles of people squeezed in the waiting room just like that of a megabus departing from montreal when we immediately entered the hotel.now youcan imagine the room temperature... more

This place is disgusting. Not only did a staff member joke with us that the downstairs bathroom had been overflowing with sewage the night before we arrived, our bed was infested with bed bugs. We were unaware of the source of our bites and chalked them up to the muggy summer. However, we carried these bugs with us through the rest of our road trip and even back to our homes in the United... more

The people where nice and polite. I did not expect a 5 start hotel, nor did I want to pay for it too. This was perfect for me.

good location, dirty floors
August 04, 2014

Location is close to down town. Floors need cleaning up more Often, bathrooms can be cleaner. Beds hVe some denta in the middle. Beds make too much noise sometimes end up waking others in the room up. Staff is very friendly, not the fastest. Very laid back place. Ok for the value. Could have long waits for bathrooms.

Nice location
July 30, 2014

The hostel is okay, the living room needs renovation. There is no good sofa to sit on. If the living area could be renovated that would be a good boost but all in all, there place was really nice, close to all the restaurants and mall and the receptionists were all nice and helpful.

great place to hangout with young people
July 20, 2014

First of all, it is a backpacker inn, not a 5 stars hotel. If you want to find some place amazing to stay, this is for sure not an option. However, if you are: energetic, want to stay close to the center of the city, like to meet new friends, don't care too much about the room, this is the place to go. The people on the frontdesk is helpful and very friendly, and I enjoy spend time there.

Perfect location
July 20, 2014

The only good thing about this hotel is excellent location, just 10 min walk to the Parliament Hill, so to get to the tourist attractions you don't need transport. Other things are very bad. Hotel have to houses, first with "reception" are very dirty and smell awfull with all kinds of cooked food. Rooms are very dirty, I've find even under my bad somebodies socks. Bad linen we should get from... more

Great atmosphere actually, pretty cozy place and a very friendly staff. Everyone is welcome here. You'll meet a ton of people from all over the world here. You get a bed in a room with other bunk beds. I would suggest taking the top bed... The thing becomes kind of wobbly when the top person turns or moves. There is a negative side to this room, of course... I mean it's a very good chance that... more

Close to the Byward Market and downtown Ottawa.
June 22, 2014

The place seemed like it was meant for young people and those used to sharing things such as bathrooms and kitchens. I would rather not share my bathroom or kitchen. The bed was large enough for me and the room had everything that I required, except I had to ask at the front desk for towels.

This is literally the best hostel I've been so far. It's an independent, small hostel within walking distance of almost everything but the greyhound station. It's about 10 minutes from parliament hill. The staff I know so far are nice and helpful. It don't feels like in a hostel, sometimes it feels like when you're home at friends. The beds are the best hostel beds I had by now. The price is... more

I stayed here at the Backpackers Inn several times when I was visiting Ottawa (before I moved here) and was too young to use a credit card to rent a hotel room.

The accommodations aren't amazing, but you get what you pay for. The staff here were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They went out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable.

When I stayed here they had several options... more

Convenient location but poor service
May 22, 2014

First of all when we arrived at the residence the man at the front desk (main house) was very nice polite, gave us our keys took us to the room. The room wasn't even clean and there were other peoples luggage inside. Mind you check-in was at 1pm and we had arrived at 3pm! And they didn't adjust the price. We went to a tour came back later the room was proper. However, the windows couldn't be... more

Hostels often represent the best value for the money in an urban area, being in the popular tourist neighborhoods while maintaining a cheap and safe level accommodation. This is one of the better examples of that out there.
The Backpackers Inn is located in an old house on a quieter street near the popular Byward Market. You can easily walk to cafes, restaurants and bars down the street.

The best thing about this hostel is the social aspect! I hung out here one night with a friend who was staying here and the atmosphere was great!

There are lots of common areas including the living room and my favorite the front porch with comfy couches for talking and watching people pass by. There is free WIFI here, so you can take your laptop out on the deck and check your email in the... more

I had a great time visiting Ottawa and saw a lot of cool stuff, but this hostel is what made the trip truly memorable. This place is THE place to stay. Sure it's cheap and close to most fun things, but it's also such a welcoming place! Pretty much everyone I met here, the staff and the guests, were friendly and easy going. The people working here always seem happy to help in any way they can.... more
