sandymac48 Thank you to Carol and Brian.......Great ambiance with just a touch of Oz and definately a 'home away from home'. Walking distance to the city....or take a bus.....extremely helpful hosts and very knowledgeable about Ottawa and surrounds. Would definately recommend 'Australis'
dingmin It's pretty new&clean, near bus stop and parliament hill and it's good value for single backpackers. Hosts are nice.
kate.e.met This hostel had such a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that we really enjoyed staying there. The staff were friendly and mingled with the backpackers, the facilities were good, modern and clean and the walk to the centre of town was short and easy to do. Definitely would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to stay in Ottawa.

xircoin Overall an interesting experience. The location is really great since it's just near the bus terminal smack downtown. The room was clean but the shower stalls could do with improvemement since there was mildew in corners. As far as value is concerned, I figure I could have found a bed and breakfast at close to the $100 I paid and it would have probably been nice and quiet since one could hear all sorts of vehicles through the night plus the bunk beds squeaked when one moved and that was funny if you happen to be having sex. In addition, there were mosquitoes and it felt like an oven without any fan with a temp of 26 C plus humidex feeling like +30! Breakfast was a downer with no egg option and cheap cereal from some discount store - Here again a bed and breakfast would have won out. Had a nice tour in the morning of historic sites downtown, pleasant staff except for one who said it would be a lovely day but it started pouring. When I said hey! I thought you said no rain he smirked and thought it was funny. Otherwise staff was courteous.
