Be very careful with this hostel. There is NO refund policy listed on their website or in any emails they send you. They re-direct you to a their site on hostelworld.com that is the only place there is the clause. Regardless, I cancelled well beyond the 24 hour mark and they are still saying they will be taking one night... More

The staff at KIH were pleasant and efficient. As a middle aged guy with 3 minors, I felt a little out of place in the midst of a vibrant crowd of youth backpacker hipsters, but people here were unfailingly polite and the hostel really was very quiet. I think my biggest criticism would be the facilities. 4 toilets but they... More

One of the beste hostels I ever stayed. It only has around 30 beds, what makes it pretty familiar. All the staff are travelers and it's nearly impossible to be alone at this place because everybody is open-minded and friendly. The house is beautiful coloured and has two big outside decks with a quiet area and a BBQ. They organize... More

We stopped here for the night on our way through to Alberta from Vancouver. The hostel is in an old residential house that has not been updated to meet the commercial and traveler needs. There was at least 20 people sleeping in the house, most of whom were gathered around watching movies and it was like navigating a pub through... 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
