      Was not a big fan of this Hostel. We had a private room but no curtains and people could look into our room from across the street so it was not really private. It was also very hot. Breakfast was nothing special. The only thing that seemed to be good were the 2 nice English staff members.

      This hostel is nor bad, nor good. The dorms are ok, the beds are ok, the price is relatively cheap and there are ISIC and HI discounts. There is also a bar, laundry service and pancakes for breakfast included. The location is very good and the staff friendly. All in all, a good pick.

      It was in an area called Kensington which was fully of Hippy's. There was a large variety of places to eat cheap food so there was no danger of starving …

      It feels good to be back in familiar surroundings for a couple of days but I'm having a lot of problems sleeping on a bed. I guess once you get accustomed to the nice hard ground you can't go back. As I mentioned in my last major entry Antigonish was a nice sleepy little town. The grounds of St. Francis Xavier University are especially nice. You...
