Welcome to Algonquin Backpackers, an established hostel and inn run by travellers, for travelers.
Relax and enjoy your stay in the comfort of our unique century-old frontier hotel. Leave the tourist rush behind and take a step back into Algonquin’s history.
Located in the heart of the Algonquin Highlands, we’re surrounded by lakes, forest and unspoiled scenery on the quiet side of Algonquin Park. But don’t expect to see hordes of camera-toting sightseers or lines of buses and camper vans. Our tiny Village of Maynooth is still very much ‘off the beaten path’!
For our guests traveling without vehicles, we are conveniently located on a Greyhound bus route, and once you have arrived we offer all sorts of Algonquin day trips and shuttles with options to hike, bike, horseback ride, kayak and canoe, or we can set you up for an overnight canoe trip or camping adventure. We guarantee good equipment and the best rental rates!
