NO STAFF WAS available from 5 pm till morning. We let ourselves into free room after waiting 1 hour. No key, towel or soap to take shower after 5 hours travel. HEALTH SAFETY CONCERN: domestic dogs freely roaming in common kitchen where we prepared our meals. FIRE HAZARD: electric wires installed not up to BC code, attic rooms are heated... More

This place is owned and run by a family and its whole atmosphere is of a big commune. apart from its obvious and well mentioned plus sides such as highly equipped kitchen, multiple restrooms with never ending hot water, cozy living room and great location just across from the lift, that place embraces you from the moment you knock on...

Stayed three occasions this summer. This is by far the cleanest and most well equipped kitchen bar none. There is a horrendous amount of equipment for many people, not just a couple. Large commercial fridges and freezers. Lots of communal use spices etc. Six clean individual washrooms and showers, lots of hot water. And as said earlier, that mountain air... More

Good close location to Sun Peaks resorts & reasonable layout & rooms but the bathrooms were filthy & didn't appear to get cleaned in the two days we were there. The host was too busy working at other jobs in the resort. This could be such an awesome place to stay of it has been clean.

My friend and I stayed in the private double outside of ski season. It felt like a home away for home. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything from spices to cutlery and the fridge and freezer storage opportunities definitely helped us out. The Wi-Fi was fast and the resident dog was extremely friendly. We would absolutely stay there... More

Home away from home! Could not of asked for a more comfortable, relaxed place to live in for the winter season. The burfield chairlift is right across the road for quick access to the slopes. Extremely comfy couches too!

Exceeded all of my expectations. I am a 68 year old male skier and I found myself amongst a collection of +/- 15 youngsters from around the world. They do clean-up after themselves ! Very respectful, polite, friendly, like family. No need to lock up stuff, accommodating as to my needs (very late check-out). If you don't need a 5... More

Staying at the Sun Peaks hostel feels more like being a a guest in someone's home than staying in a hostel. We were lucky enough to get a private room. The quiet times were respected by the other guests and we slept solidly! The owners were up about about cooking pancakes for everyone in the morning and coffee was hot... More

Everything was better than you could imagine. This place has character and an environment that is so homely and welcoming. The owners and staff are amazing and considerate people who always made the stay comfortable and went above and beyond to please. I spent my first white Christmas here and they made it an unforgettable day, everyone woke up to... More

I don't recommend the Hostel, especially if you aren't friendly with dogs... The owners did just the minimum to welcome us. The cleanness was not the best point of the hostel! Everything is quite small and messy! The positive point is the location to go skiing, we just had to cross the road to Burfield chairlift... To go to the... More
