Welcome to Halifax!
Gateway to the Atlantic Provinces, Halifax is a great base from which to explore the rest of the Maritimes and Newfoundland and Labrador. Founded in 1749, to establish British strength in North America, Halifax has much history and culture, including a cool summer Jazz Festival, a funky Busker's Festival, the International Tattoo, and the Titanic Graveyard.
HI-Halifax, the Halifax Heritage House Hostel, is located minutes from the waterfront, right in the heart of the city's vibrant downtown. Our designated Municipal Heritage Building has been recently renovated and has a brand new exciting look, along with fabulous new on-site amenities, including FREE WI FI, FREE courtesy phones, new leather furniture in the common areas, a new wide screen TV, internet and printer access, recharging stations for laptops, cell phones and cameras, and brand new comfy beds in our private rooms!
Offering affordable accommodation in a friendly, safe and comfortable environment to individuals, familiies and groups of all ages, HI Halifax has private, family and dorm rooms available. Situated 200m from the bus and trains stations, getting here is a breeze!
The hostel is close to the city's best music and pubs, and some of the best seafood you'll enjoy in Canada. The Saturday Farmer's Market, Asian food shops and various large grocery stores are all within a short walk's distance, and your HI MEMBERSHIP CARD will get you discounts at several nearby restaurants.
