From the moment we arrived, there was not a good atmosphere. The other guests were unwelcoming and distant. Then we were told they had got our booking wrong, so asked if my friend and I could sleep in separate rooms. We fought against it and they eventually managed to sort something (miraculously). Then our room absolutely stank. It was dark... More

Stayed here for a night on a stop over in Kelowna. Great hostel for sure and I have stayed in a lot over my years of traveling. Rooms were great with huge storage for bags and gear. Bathrooms were well taken care of, updated and clean, clean, clean. Kitchen was not huge but was super clean and has everything you... More

From all the hostels I've already been, this was the most cozy one. The place is beautifully decorated, the beds and mattresses are new and they have a cute outdoor area. They worry with cute notes so you put your things on the lockers (that are huge =D) so they can keep the floor always clean, what is nice. The... More

Intercity hop to shop in Kelowna- Mother with teen aged girls made this a really fun get away! The free pancake breakfast was a nice surprise but sadly we couldn't stick around for movie night with the gang. We booked a private room for the 3 of us which was a bonus. Met lovely world travelers totally enjoyed our visit!... More

KIH is the best hostel there is by far in the OK Valley, and possibly beyond. With daily activities, and warm staff, it is hard for guests not to feel at home. The staff makes it their goal to ensure that guests feel comfortable and welcome. They bring one another together through pot lucks, free spaghetti and movie nights, nights... More

Stayed here in February 2012 and was the best hostel experience of my life. I was only there a week but met some fantastic people that I will hold in high regard for a long time to come. Small and basic it has everything you could dream of, laid back living area, FIFA tournaments one evening, a combined staff-guest night... More

Nice small-ish hostel with a good atmosphere. Great value for money as free pancake breakfast included and other things such as free pasta nights and movie nights. Location could be better as it is a 20ish min walk in to town

This place is more than great. Lived there for a few weeks last summer, met the greatest people from all around the world, had the most amazing time. I would not recommand it to anyone looking for quiet and regular environment. This place is made for fun, open and adventurous people of all kind. The large patio, the BBQ, the... More

I enjoyed staying here. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. They rooms were small with as many beds as could possibly fit, but relatively clean. As other posters said, it turns into a bit of a party house at times, but if you expect that its not too bad.
