A night in jail, don'tr...

Liked: If you ever wanted to see how it feels to spend a night in jail - this is the perfect place to test it. Good location - not far from the center, ok facilities for a hostel - shared bathroom (bring your own soap, you only get a towel). Quite nice staff, but I'd say not above Canadian average. Overall a very pleasant and fun experience. Self-service breakfast with enough choice to find something to eat.

Thank you so much! It...

Liked: JAIL concept!) Location, breakfast and BBQ party. And a big comfortable parking (not free of charge but cheaper than others and available lots)
Disliked: You have to know that's due to part-open doors and great acoustic in the corridor - even not so loud voices could disturb your sleep. However, people try to do their best, but showers still make some noise.

Poor

Liked: Good breakfast.
Disliked: Claustrophobic "room" with 2.90mx0.90m where 2.40m is occupied by the bed. No shelves or hangers. Facing a road with a lot of heavy traffic all night long. Don t let you go to toilet around 8 pm during the guided tour they organize everyday. Red lights in the toilet. No soap in the morning in the lavatory.

Good

Liked: Staff is amicable. Overall facilities were clean.
Disliked: The bathrooms are awful. The cabins are small and almost see-through. One of the two was clogged. The bathroom door doesn't close and when it does wakes up everyone on that floor. For some reason the single cells are semi-opened and you can hear and be heard by anyone on the same floor. Not great if you thought about waking up with an alarm.

Very good

Liked: It is well located, next to the Rideau centre and at a walking distance from the bars and restaurants. Pub crawl on Friday was nice, we went to many bars and nightclubs. Nothing bad to say about the bedroom and bathroom. It is not a frightening place as it looks on the picture.
