We had a group of 27 cyclists and had a blast! Lots of space and wide variety of rooms to accommodate couples, friends, etc The Manager helped us arrange breakfasts and lunches at a nearby community centre. Bar on the main floor had great live entertainment and cheap drinks

This hostel will be memorable, but unfortunately for all of the wrong reasons. Upon arrival, we had to go hunting for the manager in order to secure our room keys... we were told if he wasn't around to "check the bar". 1. Kitchen is small and unkept. Sink was full of dirty dishes and greasy pans requiring washing. The 'frig...

I stayed 6 days at the Arlington, and I would return in a heartbeat. Booking the reservation was painless, all done by email but it only took about an hour start to finish. The manager even checked to make sure I was intending to come to Maynooth, Canada, not Maynooth, Ireland. My corner room #8 was very large with funky...

The Arlington Hotel is in Maynooth, which is not the first town you think of, if you want to go to the Algonquin Provincial Park. The Park is around 30mins away by car. But the rooms are really nice and clean, there is a well-equipped kitchen free to use for every guest and downstairs is a bar and a billard...

I stayed over night in a recent trip to Maynooth for snow mobiling The guy was very helpful, I booked late and he responded promptly by email. It's not 4 star, best description would be rustic. It's an old building and the rooms are functional. It was clean and tidy and for $35 a night you can't really complain. If...

With live music, a mish-mash of friendly people, and a great bar, this is always an up-beat place. if just for a few hours playing pool, or an over-night get-away before heading to Algonquin, the owners always take the best care of you.

For those who are travelling to Algonquin Park, It’s a good stop. The Rooms and Place were neat and tidy. The restrooms were well maintained to our expectation. The pub on the ground floor was very good and fun. They played some great African music while we were there which added to the ambience of the place. The only problem...

My friend and I wanted somewhere to stay to enjoy Algonquin national park for a few days. The Arlingon is well located for this purpose, especially (or possibly only) if you have a car. The dorm room was huge for a hostel so there was plenty of space and the kitchen was well equipped. Bernie did a great job of...

Stayed for three nights and it was the best stay during our travels in Canada. The hostel itself might look a little old and not luxurious (as one doesn't expect a Hi-Hostels to be anyway) but it is clean and offers everything you'll need plus interesting and great local company. Everyone was very helpful. Would definetly stay in Maynooth again!...

We were disappointed. We read the other great reviews posted here, and decided to give it a try. We were driving across Ontario, and were looking for a way to break up the trip. Granted, we are old enough to be the parents of most of the people staying here (but we are not seniors yet!). We really enjoy old...

Thank you, Fay, for your honest and forthcoming review of our home in the woods. As you know, renovations are under way and a brand new look and feel is coming to The Arlington in August. Happy trails!
