There are many reasons to travel: Escaping the day to day, finding thrills and excitement, or simply doing something you have never experienced before.
As Halloween approaches, some travellers might even work up the courage to find the ultimate thrill experience – spending the night in a haunted room.
If getting creeped out is right up your alley, Booking.com – which connects travellers with a diverse range of places to stay – has a range of spooktacular accommodations to fit every fright level.
HI OTTAWA JAIL HOSTEL
Starting its life as Nicholas Street Gaol, this former prison in central Ottawa has since been converted into a hostel.
Although some of the rooms have been renovated to meet the standard of modern-day comforts, the hostel still has the original wooden prison doors and all of the windows still have bars.
What’s more, some say that the facility still houses some of its former inmates. Ghostly screams and mysterious noises are common occurrences.
The most sighted apparition in Ottawa Jail is Patrick J. Whelan, an Irish tailor who was executed there for the murder of a local politician. Sharing a dorm is possible, but there is no guarantee who (or what) you might be sharing it with.
