Lonely Planet review

Barefoot is a brand-new hostel run by the lovely folks at the Swiss Hotel. Thick duvets, a widescreen plasma TV and generous bursts of air-conditioning only begin the list of the homey details that make this place the clear budget winner. And as the name suggests, don't forget to take your shoes off when you arrive!

Our independent authors have visited Barefoot Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Ottawa.
