Located right in the heart of Winnipeg's vibrant downtown, HI-Winnipeg's Downtowner hostel is in the center of the country's most diverse mix of cultures. We are close to the city's finest attractions More including the Forks (the future site of the Human Rights Museum), the award-winning Manitoba Museum, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the incredibly dynamic National Historic Site, the Exchange District. The Exchange is known for all of its vibrant shops, restaurants, and entertaining nightlife. We are also located about a 20-minute walk from our very own Osborne Village. On the Osborne strip you can find an array of local only shops, restaurants, stellar pubs. Ask our staff about the hot-stops in these areas for shopping and great night out. Also, ask about how you can receive discounts from our partners in the area with your HI Membership! Less

They charged me $10 to store my bags for the day! They also charge $5 an hour for the use of their computer with internet. I've travelled all over the world and this was pretty up there on the scale of dodgy! Their wireless isn't that fabulous either because it drops in and out.
