The Hostelz.com Review

Barefoot Hostel in Ottawa is a quiet hostel situated in a central part of Ottawa, perfectly suitable for either shorter or longer stays in the city. Its one peculiarity is that it is a hostel for women only, but other than that it's a typical good hostel, well located and well maintained.

The Location

The hostel is located close to the downtown area, within walking distance from Parliament Hill, Rideau Canal, and shopping centre, as well as the University of Ottawa. There are grocery stores nearby, as well as restaurants, bars, and coffee shops.

The hostel is a short walk away from an airport bus stop. There are buses from the central bus terminal or the train station, which are both about half an hour away on foot. There is also parking available on the streets around the property.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Our only minor annoyance is that the dorm rooms are a little cramped. Once everyone is in the room, it becomes difficult to move around, especially if there are several guests getting ready in the morning, or packing. It can also get a little hot at night due to the close proximity of the beds and small quarters. There are lockers available, and each bed has a little shelf, as well as an outlet.

The bathrooms are modern and spacious and are kept clean. There are enough shelves for toiletries, as well as enough room away from the shower to keep your towel and clothes dry.

Common Spaces

There is a large living room with a TV and a couch and a large table and chairs. The feel of the living room is warm and cozy, and the whole ground floor has an intimate atmosphere, like that of a house, rather than a hostel. The same applies to the kitchen, which is on the small side, but perfectly functional and well equipped.

While we visited, the hostel was rather quiet, however, this might have been due to the time of year. It would be very easy to meet people, as it is a small hostel, and people tend to congregate in the common areas downstairs. The Wi-Fi is not available in the rooms, and that might also have something to do with that.

Summary

Overall, we love the friendly atmosphere of this hostel. Unless you plan to spend a lot of time in your room, this is a perfect place to relax, meet new people, or just use as a place to sleep while you explore the nearby attractions.

Best hostel -- perfectly clean!

I stayed at the barefoot hostel for the long weekend of Canada Day -- it looks really small from the outside, but inside they have a big common room to chat with other backpackers or to watch tv on the big flatscreen. The rooms have a nice size -- 4 beds each with lockers as well. The bathroom -- usually the dirtiest room in a hostel was very clean and super modern! You felt not like taking a shower in a hostel bathroom! The location is also really central -- 5 mins from the Greyhound Ottawa University bus stop -- and even closer to Ottawa "downtown" -- Byward market, Rideau Center -- everything! Honestly the best I've ever stayed in! I would highly recommend it to anybody who is planning to go to Ottawa!!
