Why hostels?

HI Canada is a not-for-profit, member-based organization. Staying in hostels will open the door to meeting new people, learning about amazing places and understanding different cultures. Most hostels offer both shared and private rooms and they almost always have a kitchen you can use, so you can save the money you would otherwise spend on dining out. You’ll find common areas to hang out in and meet fellow travellers from all over the world. Many hostels offer regular activities and tours to get you better acquainted with wherever you are. HI staff love travel just as much as you do so they’re always willing to help you out and give you tips.

*NOTE: Applies to all purchases of VIA train tickets, other than Escape fare and Prestige Sleeper Class, any promotional fare requiring a discount code, multi-trip pass products, and any other promotion, offer, discount or fare where the conditions specify that it cannot be combined with other discounts.
