A hostel is an establishment that provides budget-oriented, communal-style lodging for a broad range of people; particularly: students, workers, and travelers. Hostels encourage social interaction amongst guests through shared spaces and facilities.
Unlike a traditional hotel, the Hostel does not offer individual rooms — instead, the 1st and 3rd floors feature 24 single-size bunks and 12 double-size bunks, each with a privacy curtain, bedside cubby with reading light and power outlet, and storage locker. This format allows us to offer comfortable, convenient lodging at such an affordable price.
Reservations are generally limited to seven days. Longer reservations may be negotiated with management on a case-by-case basis.
You’ll just need:
Note that the Hostel do Nord reserves the right to refuse lodging to any would-be guest who displays obvious signs of inebreation / intoxication.
Yes! We have plenty of room for bikes, kayaks, canoes, or whatever else you might have in tow. They’ll be kept safe in a secure storage area on the property.
Yes! If you stop by the Hostel the day of your reservation but prior to check-in, we’ll store your luggage until your bunk is available. Once you’re at your bunk, you’ll find a convenient, secure storage locker.
NO. For sanitary reasons, use of your own personal bedding is prohibited. If you’d like extra blankets or pillows in addition to those provided with your bunk, we’ll be happy to facilitate your request.
Guests must be 18 years of age to stay at the Hostel without an accompanying adult. With an accompanying adult, there is no minimum age limit. (No maximum age limit either, so bring the kids AND grandma!)
NO. As the hostel is a shared environment, and pets may pose sanitary / health concerns for other guests, pets are NOT permitted at the Hostel. Let us know if you need any tips of nearby pet boarding facilities!
There is no official curfew at Hostel du Nord, but we do ask that guests keep the sleeping floors quiet from 10:00 PM – 7:00 AM, and the lobby area quiet from 1:00 AM – 6:00 AM.
Two of our Three floors are wheelchair accessible. You can access the first floor through a (guest-only) door that leads straight to into the sleeping area. Our second floor is accessible by two different ways. A ramp out back and there are elevators throughout the skywalk system that you will allow access to our lobby.
Unfortunately we do not provide any private bathrooms. We have five self-contained (toilet, shower, sink) bathrooms, a double vanity (for non-bathroom stuff), and a shower in the sauna lounge. You should find the bathrooms more than adequately clean, and very private (when you lock the door, of course).
A towel is required to enter the sauna, but a bathing suit is highly recommended. You can rent a towel from us for a buck.
Other Miscellaneous Rules:
Let us know if you see something that is not up to code, regulation, or not in line with the hostel ground rules, please inform the guest and or all managers of the situation that needs to be addressed. It is your job to monitor the guests the best you can.
