reservation screw up

there was a mix up with reservation confirmed by hotels.com - "I just saw your reservation through expedia, supposedly our expedia account is no longer active so I’m not sure what happened, I will have to contact expedia. We do have rooms available on the 5th and 6th but no rooms available on the 7th, let me know what you would like to do." - we had to find our own accommodation for the 7th at the last minute

Great location, close to Algonquin Provincial Park

We always enjoy our time in Algonquin Park and the Mad Musher is a great place to stay during those visits. The cost is very reasonable and the hostel meets all your needs for food preparation or restaurant dining. The staff are courteous and very helpful.
