HI - South Algonquin Backpackers Hostel Reviews

Good Stay

Was in the area visiting and needed a place to stay. Didn't expect much, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Bernie the Owner was very friendly and helpful. I had a private room, clean and comfortable bed. The Hotel itself had a lot of character and charm. Just wished there was more restaurants and more to do in town after 8 pm.

I had a great stay here! The staff are really helpful and friendly, and the hostel's in a good position to check out South Algonquin.


Safe, clean and very friendly! Thanks for a nice stay!



Imagine a time of steam engines and horse-drawn carriages, a time of lumberjacks and sawmills. This is the old Algonquin Park, a time when things moved a little slower and survival was a daily effort. For over 100 years, The Arlington has served the little village of Maynooth, Ontario. It has served as safe haven for the region’s travel-weary guests, provided shelter for the thousands of resource workers that peppered the area, and served up some the best times at its notorious bar, The Shot and Bottle Lounge. That bar was expanded in 1953 and today hosts some of the best musicians in Ontario. Click on the PUB link to see what’s happening at The Arlington.

Now a clean and comfortable hostel, The Arlington plays host to travelers from around the world. These intrepid souls get to see the other side of Algonquin Park, the side less traveled. But they also get to step back in history and walk the streets of a century-old logging town. So book a room with us and see what all the fuss is about!

Or as we like to say… See you at The Arlington!
