It feels more than a homestay rather than a hostel, because the owner is always around and sometime comes in the rooms without knocking (she installed the AC at midnight for example, though it was nice that she did). When we arrived earlier than the check-in time, we just could throw our bags in and weren't allowed to use the... More

The owner is a kind and very gentle person who travelled throughout the entire world and understands the need for calm when resting overnight in an unknown town. Although Small, it is very nice to go into and surrounded by flowers,The beds are confortable and the kitchen... More

Hello my traveling friends, I am an international traveling photographer. The most recent trip was to Cuba a couple of weeks ago. You can find my reviews on this and photography related travel sites. After spending the better part of this year on the road, I found my bank account was depleting quite rapidly. So instead of spending big bucks... More

cheekful, Manager at Kelowna Okanagan Lake Hostel, responded to this review

This is what you get for try to help somebody who is unable to pay for their room, this individual offered to do some cleaning work around the hostel in exchange for payment of his bed. When I was not happy with his performance, I asked him to leave and as result he wrote these mean spirited comments, obviously to... More

This is a terrible hostel. The female bathrooms have no dividers or privacy, the male bathrooms are the same and one morning there was a guy washing his dog in the basin. "Free breakfast" is one hard boiled egg and a stale bagel. The "common room" is a hall way with a TV in it. The owner/manager is a complete... More

My daughter and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in October. The hostel is very clean, quiet and comfortable. The location is super convenient, just walk a few steps to Safeway and Shoppers Drug Market. Ms Maggie, the owner of the hostel, is very nice, friendly and thoughtful. She works hard to keep the hostel well maintained. My... More

The place is ok if you want to stay for one night. But if you are planning to stay a long time in Kelowna, don't recommend this place because the male bathroom is gross especially the toilet seats because they looked like they are covered by urine. In addition, there's an urinal right beside the sink without any divider in... More
