Sabina was so welcoming and very warm to me and the other girls staying in the hostel- I can’t recommend her enough! The hostel was very clean and we felt very safe at night- the beds are also extremely comfortable (I slept like a baby!) Sabina if you’re reading this it was so lovely to meet you and next time in Ottawa I will definitely stay with you again!
