    • 4.0.Fair

      Like: Convenient location. Friendly staff. Very clean Dislike: A: Door in room leading to fire escape UNLOCKABLE!!! B: To warm for me-others might like it that way. TOO BRIGHT for sleeping in room: 1: Window shade not blackout 2: Bright EXIT SIGN IN ROOM. 3: CONTINUALLY FLASHING smoke detector overhead. 4: LARGE GAPS around entrance door allow light from corridor to shine in. C: NOISE from other guests at various times during night kept interrupting sleep.

      An Avid Travellers Dream

      As an avid traveller, the Ottawa Backpackers Inn is a real hidden gem. I've had the chance now to have twice enjoyed the wonders of this hostel. The service is amazing, the accommodations are lovely, and being located within Byward Market is super convenient!
