This hostel is beyond beautiful! I loved every aspect of it. There is a beautiful large kitchen and both inside and outside eating areas. It was always quiet and clean. Also a quick 4 minute walk into the main parts of town. I would 100% return to this hostel :)

This hostel was wonderful. It had a large, fully equipped kitchen, games room, and plenty of space to hang out. The dorms were nice, and the beds were super comfy. The view is amazing as well - you wake up to the ocean. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and helped us figure out what to do. Although $30... More

Still waiting for the manager to call. I made a reservation by phone earlier in the year and the clerk screwed up ( I have proof) and booked me in a month before I was to show up with a companion traveling from overseas. When I called weeks later to confirm my room, they just said 'Sorry, your mistake' and... More

I stayed one night in this hostel and was super impressed. The bedding was amazing for a hostel, easily the nicest room quality I've seen in a hostel. So that could be the reason for the $40 a night dorm bed price. The whole property is great, well taken care of and in a wonderful location. We decided to do... More

WE had 3 generations in one 4 bed room. Clean, friendly and convenient.It was a memorable stay. Meeting people, sharing adventures and THE BEST LOCATION. The kitchen gets a bit hectic at dinner time so make your meals the quick and easy variety using as few dishes, utensils as possible or, like one family I saw,... bring your own! The... More

When we called to book, the staff member taking our booking booked us in for the wrong night however when we asked for our credit card deposit to be refunded the manager refused to admit the mistake was on their end. After 3 visits to the hostel to try and regain our stolen money we realised it was a lost... More

I stayed here with a few friends for the long weekend. I am glad we reserved in advance as they were fully booked. Whilst this was not the cheapest of hostel it is good value for money, especially given that options in Tofino (a very small town) are not exhaustive. The location is good there a large windows in the... More

If you bring your own foodstuffs, then the on-site kitchen will make it worth it, because eating out is very expensive in Tofino. Parking is spare, and definitely not for motorcycles (we had one go down.) Four to a room, co-ed. Clean, but the internet is really slow because everybody is on it. A nice sitting area with a beautiful... More

We arrived very late in Tofino and had to decide quick. We paid 45 dollar per person and night which is ridiculous in my opinion for a bed in a dorm. But the hostel was clean and tidy. In the room where I slept we had no power outlets and the lamp over my bed was not working which was... More

Two friends and me stayed there for two nights in a 3 people room. Enough space, nice washrooms, good kitchen, caring staff. I would stay there again! It's great value for what you pay and an excellent location.
