    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.

    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.

This artwork was really cool and I had read there were some quirky features that the artist had included to encourage people to interact and appreciate his artwork more thoroughly such as spotting his self portrait or finding the character with 3 arms. I loved it..like a pig in mud when it comes to those sorts of things. After ...

    Snow fight on Christmas

    ... the boys outside after a lot of nagging and we had a mean snowfight. Unfortunately the snow was too soft and fluffy, so our snowballs weren't that great. But it was awesome fun nonetheless. Of course I made a snow angel in the beautiful snow too. There was a plan to go out to Peggy’s cove today but everyone was too tired and stuffed with food. Maybe ...

    Bonjour les amis
    Alors je suis bien arrivée à Halifax, mercredi dernier avec quelques péripéties. Mon dernier vol de Montréal à Halifax a été annulé donc j'ai du attendre le prochain - 5 heures plus tard. Je n'ai appris cela qu'après avoir attendu 1 heure pour mes bagages, en vain, ils ne sont pas arrivés à Montréal. Les joies des compagnies aériennes! Mais bon. Je les ai eu finalement samedi matin et rien n'était cassé, merci maman pour ...
