36 Water Street, Saint John, New Brunswick
BunkHaus Boutique Hostel
After learning of different boutique hostels popping up around the world, Ingrid Woodhouse was inspired to create her very own hostel business here in New Brunswick. And, although there was no doubt from the beginning that Uptown Saint John was the best location for BunkHaus, it took some time to find the perfect spot.
“I looked at a few places but it wasn’t until we walked into 36 Water Street that I knew the hostel had found a home,” says Ingrid. “It has a beautiful exposed brick wall that really showcases our city’s character, huge storefront windows that let in tons of natural light, it’s uptown on a ground floor, has high ceilings, and it even has my ideal footprint of 2500sq ft. It was a total homerun.”
Ingrid hopes that BunkHaus will help draw more travelers to the city and is excited to bring affordable yet chic accommodations to the Uptown core. The hostel will offer both private rooms and custom timber-frame bunks with stair access the top beds. As for the common area there will be a fresh new communal kitchen, long harvest table for sharing meals, and a lounge area for guests to relax and meet one another. The addition of a minibar as well as an outdoor patio with hammocks and heat lamps are also part of the plan but will come later. On-site laundry and free Wi-Fi will be vailable too.
With traditional Saint John architecture of 12ft high ceilings, exposed brick, and large windows, there will be no problem making this space a home using local art, plants, and comfortable Scandinavian-inspired furnishings. Guests will feel right at home here as they share meals, music, and memories together in the communal spaces designed to bring people together.
“We’re incredibly delighted to see the BunkHaus coming uptown and look forward to the grand opening. Without a doubt, this will be another great addition to the neighborhood. Not only will this be very high quality, it will also satisfy a need in the marketplace. We congratulate Ingrid on her vision and for seizing the opportunity,” says Keith Brideau of Historica Developments.
Stephanie Turner worked with Ingrid to find the perfect space and represented BunkHaus in the negotiations in the Landlord, Historica Developments.
