Options for Short-term Travellers in Canada

  • Hostels - Generally, you share a bathroom and a kitchen, but for single people or small families, these hostels can be comfortable and economical. You can find hostel listings at Hostels.com, Hostelz.com, and Backpackers.ca.
  • Bed and Breakfast (B&B) - A bed and breakfast, often referred to as a B&B, is usually operated out of a large single-family home. Usually, you have a private bedroom, with or without your own bathroom. In most cases, breakfast is served in the morning. However, you do not have access to kitchen facilities.
  • Some college and university residences rent rooms (such as dormitory rooms) to non-students. More rooms are available during the summer months, May to August. Look for information about "student services," "conference services," "housing," or "student residence."
  • Budget or discount motels and hotels - Motels are usually cheaper than hotels in Canada.
