    The hostel is part of a cafe pretty central in town. The rooms are spacious and comfy. The hostel staff is fun and helpful and even though the kitchen is small, there is always someone to have a chat and laugh with, makes it the heart of this hostel.

    Good cafe, bad locks.

    The cafe was great, really good food at a reasonable price, the salmon and egg breakfast sandwich was delicious! Most of the staff were helpful, and the beds were comfy, but the lock on my locker was broken, and a poor attempt was made to fix it. It's just a fifteen minute walk to the Citadel and town, and whilst the area is a little strange, the hostel felt safe. Could do with more bathrooms, oh and a better cleaner for the ones they do have.

    ... 8217;s surface, we loom closer
    to our destination, Halifax, Nova Scotia. We are exhausted and a bit stir
    crazy, eager to reach land once again, shower and get a full nights sleep, but
    the arrival is always bittersweet as we know that port brings the owners who
    have beat us here and will be arriving onboard first thing in the morning. Back
    to service we go with no end in sight as they anticipate cruising without departure
    for most of the summer. ...

    ... but if it won`t fit the cost of shipping in an open top container or as loose cargo will escalate. Of course there is often a Ro-Ro shipping service where vehicles are driven onto a specialized car carrying ship. But although less expensive than containerization security and the possibility of damage on Ro-Ro ships and during loading and unloading has always been a potential issue.

    ... we headed up the hill towards the Citadel and the Old Town Clock. We managed to find the shady side of the street, and even stopped in the Grand Parade (a small park in the city, with City Hall at one end) to finish off our drinks. We took some pictures of the clock, but decided that we would save the Citadel for tomorrow (we couldn't even imagine walking the rest of the way up the hill in the heat).

    After checking out the clock, we meandered a bit further into town ...
