What are Canada Hostels?

A Canada hostel is a low-cost, short-term shared accommodation where guests can book a bed, in a shared room with others with access to a shared kitchen, living area and washrooms. Hostel rooms can be all male or all female or mixed. Private rooms may also be available.

Types of Canada Hostels and Backpacker Inns

Most Canada hostels and backpacker inns are often located conveniently near major transportation routes like highways, ferry terminals, city centres and bus routes. There are some accommodations which are retreat hostels, where the opposite occurs, and they are located in wilderness areas far away from civilization and services. In the latter case the hostel, sometimes, provides transportation to and from the remote location.

Hostel Amenities

Canada hostels are, in many cases, a self contained accommodation with amenities on site. However, the amenities and services are shared. Travelers share guest rooms and operate on a cooperative system when it comes to dining, entertainment and clean up. Everyone shares a kitchen and a common living area. Everyone cleans up after themselves.

Hostel Extra

Depending on the hostel and backpacker inn there are sometimes some extras included. Some of the extras may or may not include a games room, internet, sport equipment rentals, picnic shelters, hot tub, group fire pits, tours and guides

Canada Hostel Rooms

Canada hostel rooms are often shared with others, sometimes up to 8 people. Some hostel accommodations provide private sleeping quarters for those who are uncomfortable with sharing a room.
