About the neighbourhood
By bus or by car, your Algonquin Park adventure is a short drive from Toronto or Ottawa. The hostel is located in the tiny village of Maynooth, just 15 minutes from the South Gate of Algonquin Park and 30 minutes from the East Gate. The biggest town in the region, Bancroft is just 15 minutes to the south.

The little village of Maynooth is an oasis for artists and collectors alike. Stroll one of the first country roads in the province and take in all the art shoppes and galleries. There's lots to discover in the Highlands!
