Halifax Backpackers is located in the middle of North End Halifax. It's a small, independently owned hostel that embodies the personality of the city. It's located to the north of the downtown area and is just a five minute walk from the waterfront. This is a fun and diverse hostel that is surrounded by live music venues and second hand stores. It's a great value and a fun place to stay if you're hoping to take advantage of the city's nightlife. The hostel also offers all kinds of free amenities including linens, wi-fi, and travel information. There's also an on-site organic fairtrade cafe and a book exchange.
Halifax Backpackers has a social environment where it's easy to meet other travelers. During the summer months they host regular barbecues and frisbee nights. Between the months of October and May there are Reggae dance nights and DJs in the cafe on the weekends. Parties last until 2 am so if you're planning to go to bed early, this is probably not the place for you.
Guests can choose between private rooms and dorm rooms, all of which are reasonably priced.
