Good to stay for a short visit
It's a good place to stay for short visit. Location and service is quite good. Fare is good, may come for the next time.
Good hostel but no ac
The only complaint I had about this hostel was that I was in the top floor with no AC during a very hot spell in Ottawa. For whatever reason, one of the people in my dorm decided to shut the door to the balcony (which brought in the cool night air) in the middle of the night so that made it worse. However, the staff was very helpful and the hostel is in a good location to explore Ottawa from and it's close to a lot of restaurants.
the hostel is located in an old house, my dorm room was smelly, I think they didn't use vacuum for a long time, especially under the beds. In the fridge there is not space enough for your grocery. All guests are asked to take off shoes inside the house so floor carpets need now to be changed or cleaned because they smell. Washrooms are not very clean. In general there is not much space in this house and in the evening the small living room is quite full and you cant even sit down anywhere. There are not enough showers so you must stay in line.
The best hostel I've visited
Friendly staff and atmosphere. Tidy at all times. Excellent location. It has large common areas and is a good place to meet interesting people from around the globe. It has free lockers and a fully equipped kitchen. I haven't seen any hostel in North America, Europe, or Asia with such a friendly and cozy atmosphere. I could say the hostel is what i enjoyed the most from Ottawa. Totally recommended.
this place is cute and clean and the people are really nice, although occasionally hard to find (although a cell phone number is posted on the door if you really need to find them). parking is only $5/night right next to the hostel which is great. theres a really nice area with great views to walk around five minutes' walk from there. also i stayed in the private room in the basement which is so cute and has a TV and very accessible bathroom. great price too.
this is a really great place to stay. it is cosy. it is clean, especially the kitchen (this is really important!). the people are very friendly, very nice.
The loveliest place I ever had the pleasure to stay and work. Martin makes sure his guests are happy, content, and makes his hostel their home for a rest. OBI is like a little house where you can relax your traveling feet and just enjoy your stress-free stay whilst enjoying Ottawa's many attractions. I can't wait to go back there some day soon. Ten outta ten and then some. The alternative is to go to jail. You don't want to go to jail, do you?
I spent one night here in '06. It's very chill and laid back. It seems pretty safe, I left my backpack in the closet and it was as I left it when I got back that night. Oh -- and the price is right too! The only problem is the area it's in. Don't walk alone at night, especially if you're a girl. Some guy tried to pick me up as a prostitute and then followed me slowly in his car. Other than that, I will definitely stay there if I ever find myself in Ottawa again.
