    review rating 5  Awesome hostel, felt welcome right away. Staff was friendly and very helpful. They helped me when my car would not start in the morning. Bed was very comfortable with a curtain for privacy. Common areas where great with plenty of space to sit and talk to people. Very clean. Strongly recommend.

    review rating 5  I've stayed any many hostels around the world and this one is top notch by any standard. The amenities are what you would expect from what would be advertised as a 'flash packers' in some other countries. Location is perfect. All the best restaurants and pubs are within walking distance, as is the marina and lake Superior. Lots of great live music venues in the area too. Highly recommend!

    review rating 5  Excellent in every sense of the word. Now my go-to place for visits to Thunder Bay. Cheaper than any hotel you'll stay at, located in a great side of town, and you won't regret it. Whether you a book a private room or a pod, you're guaranteed a good night's rest and you for $40-$90 you really can't go wrong.

  • review rating 5  I've been here 3 times - absolutely fantastic hostel. Spacious, clean, capsule style rooms, great breakfast, and owners that really care about their craft and making sure you have a great stay. Look at their perfect 5 star record! (as of this review 2018.09.22) Highly recommend for cheap but great accommodation in TBay.

    review rating 5  I have experienced hostels in London, Paris, Brussels, Lisbon, Porto, Seville and I find it shocking to discover that one of the best (if not THE BEST) exists here in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Beautiful kitchen, lounge area, great water pressure in the showers, a book share and even a garage where you can rent bicycles, kayaks, and paddle boards... This is clearly a hostel made by travellers for travellers. If your passing through Thunder Bay you SHOULD stay here. Seriously stellar place.

    review rating 5  I rarely give 5 stars. The staff was great, the service is great. The accommodations are excellent. Very awesome vibe from this place that entices you to stay longer. The common area is swank, and kitchen is super well set up. Our private room with bathroom was clean and exactly that, private.
