Hostels as you might suspect host backpackers from all over the globe. We’ve had guests from virtually everywhere; from Paraguay to Poland; from Zanzibar to Zimbabwe.
People visit from the world over; they even come from beautiful downtown Grimsby! Where’s Grimsby you might ask? Well it’s about 60 miles down the road about 3/4 way to Niagara Falls!
We’ve just had a lovely young Soccer star from Grimsby check in while she was on a break from mid-term exams in her final year of high-school. It’s what you might call an escape to the big city.
Now, Grimsby (as the name might imply) used to be quite grim! It is situated just off the main highway so it is not actually on the way to anywhere in particular.
It used to be considered a boring little town with both city limits signs on the same stick; but, in a time of soaring big city real estate prices it has swelled to a population of over 22,000 souls and serves as a “bedroom community” for larger cities such as Hamilton, St. Catherine’s, Burlington, Mississauga and even Toronto.
Anyhow, lovely little Amy has come all the way from Grimsby to spend a bit of time in he big city.
She might not hail from the most exotic locale; but, you’ll have to admit that she makes a lovely addition to both the hostel and Toronto!
