Great location and suite. Only problem we had was the bed for our 6 yr old daughter. The fold flat couch was very uncomfortable and the 1st night out of 3, she hardly slept. All else good - lovely garden setting, laundry facilities, cook your own food, walk to Beacon park where there is a watering can water park and... More

As someone who has outgrown the hostel scene, but hasn't grown into the cost of a hotel scene, this was absolutely perfect. My friend and I rented a suite for 4 nights, and were completely comfortable, safe and happy. Check-in was easy (you have to go to Ocean Island Backpackers on Pandora street, but they paid for us to take... More

My family came to visit me from Australia - mum and dad, sister and brother. We stayed in two rooms - Suites 2 & 3 which are at the back of the house. We all had an excellent stay, were thrilled with the location especially considering the low cost of accommodation -- totally worth it, totally recommend!

My husband and I spent 1 month in Victoria as visiting scholars at the University of Victoria and were very happy with this choice, even though it is not close to the Campus (this gave us the opportunity to enjoy a nice daily walk downtown, to the terminal of the buses for UVic!). James Bay is a beautiful historical neighborhood... More

We loved it here. Nicely decorated apartment, fully equipped kitchen, wifi, DVD, laundry, the works! Plus it's pet friendly and near one of the best off-leash dog parks we've ever seen. A short walk to the ocean in one direction and a shortish walk to downtown Victoria in the other. All for the price of a Super 8. We were... More

Arrival was a bit dicey. It was pouring rain and had to take a cab. Most unexpected, the cab drivers in Victoria are among the rudest I have ever encountered ( they were fantastic in Vancouver). You must check in at the Ocean Island Hostel and they get a cab for you to the suites, which are in a lovely... More
