    The breakfast was awesome. Had fruits, bread and jam with coffee/ Orange Juice. Secondly I liked the fact that staff was amazing, they went out of the way to ensure comfort and was extremely cooperative (specially the Tour Guide girl and Receptionist). They helped me to keep my luggage in a secured location despite I checked out and let me charge my power bank at the reception. Lastly the amazing part was the Jail tour. It was awesome to learn there is so much history behind the jail and the tour guide was really well informative and helped us paint really good picture (dark past) about the jail.

    The entrance to the hostel was bit misguiding and was confusing a lot of guest who were coming for the first time as the back door says entrance but actually it was the main gate. Hope if the hostel could put a clear entrance sign.

    Ottowa Jail Hostel is a great experience. We have a 2 bedroom "Cell". It was clean and good, spacious we could not call it but that you know if you book this "Special" hostel. The staff was very friendly and even the breakfast (although limited) is rather good. If you want to have special experience in Ottowa, you can book this Hostel (former jail)

    - nothing specific - slightly noisy but that's normal seen it's a "Cell"
