I stayed in this hostel for a long time and really enjoyed the good atmosphere. It is a small and lovely hostel where you find awesome people from all over the world. We did a lot of fun activities together and I found good friends there. I recommend this hostel to everyone who wants a nice atmosphere and a place... More

I tried to book a dorm bed at this hostel. The receptionist told me there were bunks available, but upon finding out that I live in BC, refused to book a bed for me. Her reason was that I was not an "international traveller". Why a business would deny service to Canadian residents is beyond me. I noticed a review... More

Great place to stay. Clean and friendly. It can get full, but the more likely you are to meet knew people from all walks of life. The staff are kind and accommodating, and are great to talk with about where to go in the city. The bunks we stayed in were fine there where two bunk beds in a decent... More

I stayed two nights at the hostel and it was welcoming and fun. The walls are all painted with art and colors which is unusual. Also it was clean and the staff was quite friendly. I mostly enjoyed the front deck and the BBQ in the evening.

From the moment I walked in I new I picked the wrong Kelowna Hostle, music blasting, teenagers everywhere, pretty unprofessional establishment. It was relatively clean, minus the Sunday morning vomit residue on the bathroom floor & the pillows smelt of weed. Two other mid 20's travellers checked out earlier due to the unprofessional manner in which the place was run.... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Nice building, colourful rooms and lots of info/leaflets for the Kelowna area. The people working there are friendly and helpful. At times, though, I tried to make an effort to sit with people and get to know them and felt like I wasn't getting anything in return... which is a shame. The beds are comfy which... More

I intended to stay at KIH for max one week and ended up staying three. The staff are welcoming, helpful and always working hard, even when it's not their shift. The whole hostel feels like one big family, with activities almost every day and very polite guests. I came disliking hostels and left being a huge fan. Thanks!

I've spent the last year travelling around Australia and New Zealand using hostels. I expected similar here. I reserved 2 beds, but apparently since she had taken the credit card number down wrong and either took down my phone number wrong as well, or called while we were en route in a non-receptive area (pretty common in the mountains) she...
