Canada's Ocean Playground

A travel blog entry by sigrid-geert


Bij aankomst in Canada werd meteen een van de grootste clichés over Noord-Amerika bevestigd. Alles is hier 'mega'. Aan de balie van het autoverhuurbedrijf in de luchthaven vroegen ze terloops naar onze reisplannen gedurende de komende tien dagen hier in Oost-Canada. ‘To Nova Scotia all the way from Toronto?? But you only booked an economy car …

Halifax - memories of the UK

A travel blog entry by judihasi


Halifax is a good-sized town, easy to walk around with older brick buildings at the waterfront. After coming from Quebec the difference is massive. It feels like being back in Scotland. Halifax is also pretty historical with an immigration museum at Pier 21 and Halifax was helping finding and burying the bodies of the Titanic disaster. This is …

Eat Grit

A travel blog entry by philippajane86


The saga of the broken lock should have clued me up as to the state of the other rooms in the hostel, but as I entered the shower room I was still full of optimism, that was until I saw the lack of hooks and shelves, the amalgamation of a hair in the plughole, and the cold water plummeting overhead. I'm never sure if it’s worth taking a …

Arrived In Halifax from London with no money ($15) intending to find an ATM only to find that it didn't accept my first 2 cards. Since the bus into town was cash only ($21) I was mentally cussing myself for my stupidity when I discovered another ATM that did work - relief. Cashed up I headed into town where the lovely bus driver dropped me off …

Halifax, Nova Scotia

A travel blog entry by churchill2020


Sleep in Sunday which is always a bonus since the café in the hostel (which does breakfast) doesn't open until 10am yay! Plugged my laptop in and whiled away an hour so eating a smoked salmon bagel thingy – yum – and drinking some "caw-fee". Michelle, the owner, recommended heading out to Point Pleasant park and then showed me a walk to …

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.
