      The OBI is the best hostel I've been so far. It's located in a nice neighbourhood and within walking distance of Parliament Hill. It's close to Byward Market. The beds, washrooms and wifi are good.

      We just stayed here for one night, on a mad dash trip from toronto for Family Day and the end of Winterlude.
      Initial impressions was good for a hostel, things stuck up on walls, a big lounge with couches etc., and the welcome was warm enough, but we weren't offered any information about what might be on or where we should go, only that 'everything' was 'that way'.
      We were then introduced to a 'semi-private' room, which turned out to be three walls,and a curtain. Just enough room for the bed and to stand beside it, and a lamp. It was sufficient for us as I don't understand people who want to spend time inside in a hostel when there is a new city to be explored. Bathrooms were clean, but there was a lack of atmosphere.

      I love Ottawa. It's a big city with a small town attitude.
