This is a really quirky and lovely place but dont expect amazing standards and it's more like someones home than a HI hostel. It was a bit grubby and really untidy (cluttered is not the word!) especially in the kitchen, but I loved it for this. It had so much character as did the owner so I wouldnt change a... More

I booked this place to me and other three friends in early July 2013. Right after check in, I realized that it was not a hostel, but a hell-tel! Super dirty, smelly, the owner/menager seems to never clean it. As soon as I steped in its registration office, I wanted to vomit! We decided to go find a motel in... More

We got to see salmon jumping... More

We stayed in the train car hostel. It was September so we had the whole caboose to ourselves. The place is incredibly charming. It's nothing fancy, but it will appeal to those who love unique places and aren't too fussy. The train was so cool to stay in. In the morning we canoed on the Shuswap and saw a couple... More

Booked private room, no lock on door, smelt of either damp or damp dog. The dog and cat were allowed to wander around the guest kitchen, the kitchen appeared not to have a clean/clear surface. Location wad nice beside the lake
