I want to preface this by saying that in the first two days here they found a bedbug infestation in my room. Deal-breaker, you'd think, but hear me out. First off, I didn't notice any bites, even though I have allergic reactions to them. I only found out because they do daily bedbug checks and informed me personally the second they discovered them. They sprayed the rooms within the day and offered to let me use the staff laundry to kill any that might be on my clothes. They also have an exterminator in once a week to do a more proper check. I'm giving them five stars because on top of this, it's a really nice hostel, run by really nice people, and I wanted to credit their diligence and professionalism. As a guy who's dealt with a bedbug infestation at home and panics at the very notion of them, this basically turned a nightmare into more of an inconvenience. And frankly, if you're that afraid of bedbugs, what in the heck are you doing vacationing at a hostel? The character of a place is defined by its response to adversity. Hi Hostel St. John's handled one of the worst things that could happen in a hostel perfectly, and I recommend them wholeheartedly.

Should have listened to friends which have already warned me in advance of staying there. I was staying in summer 2012 for a few nights and won't go back. The hostel is not clean with some strange long-term tenants. Just for the record, I did meet great people there as well and the location is great.

An awesome place!!! I have travelled the world and stayed in hostels. This one is top 5. It is huge. 3 houses side by side, so the backyard is all joined. Big deck and massive garden lounge area. 15 min walk to George St. 30 min walk to signal hill info centre. You get clean sheets, towels. I was in a private bedroom with 2 beds. Yes. I saw some mold in a corner of the tub. But who cares. Anyone who complains about cleanliness must travel with a butler and an entourage. Go to the delta and pay the price. Come to this hostel for the fun, the backyard and meeting fellow travelers.
