5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Having never stayed in a hostel in Canada I was a little nervous as i was on the cusp of becoming a senior and knew it would be filled with young people. What a surprise to find all of the young people the most welcoming and friendly as you would ever want to meet. Conversations around the breakfast table after our fill of delicious waffles and fresh coffee was so interesting and so much fun. The "double trouble" room with en suite was very comfortable. We did not get to meet Nick the owner but he certainly has good people in charge in his absence. Thanks for making my first experience a wonderful one.

I stayed at the Tofino Travellers Guest House last week. I had a great time, Nick and the staff are super friendly and fun to hangout with! The accommodations are totally clean and comfortable. They have a sweet BBQ deck that has great views of the harbor! It's located just one block from the main drag close to the surf shops, dock, and restaurants.

If you are on a budget, this is a fine choice as there are so many cool things to do in Tofino that can rack up quite a bill, like the hot springs cove for example. My room was clean, the shower was good, and the beds were comfortable. The location is great, walking distance to nearly everything. Also, the staff were very helpful in giving advice as far as places to eat and go. If you are looking for fancy, this is not the place. Also, be prepared to clean your own dishes after you make your breakfast or a cocktail.

We offer the best bang for your buck. In order to keep the prices down we don't employ extra staff to wash your dishes. We are not a hotel, we are not a hostel but what we are, is a guesthouse. We are located next to places that are double the price, don't include locally roasted coffee, or a waffle breakfast..... Furthermore, we have a great location, super comfortable beds and newer bathrooms.

Every year we have invested in the business to provide more for less. Thanks for staying and thank you for letting customers know they have to wash their dishes after cooking a meal.

Cheers,

Nick

This home is so much more than a hostile. It is clean and comfortable without being sterile. It is peaceful, and social. It has all of the amenities to be a homebase for all adventures and is a great resource of its own if you are new to the area and dont know exactly what you are looking for! The guesthouse is cozy and keeps you close to new friends but has all the room in the world to stretch out in whatever direction your soul needs to stretch. This was my third visit to Tofino and definitely won't be my last - but I will never stay anywhere else and wouldn't dream of recommending anything but the Guesthouse!

I wandered in to check it out before moving on to Ucluelet, and ended up staying and didn't go to Ucluelet. Nick is the bomb, so is Michele, and so are the delicious waffles for breakfast. The beauuutiful wood communal table in the kitchen looks out onto the amazing patio (with a bbq), which looks out onto the water and is the perfect spot to catch the sunset.

Nick knows pretty much everything about Tofino, and has so many other interesting things to say about various interesting things. I felt super welcome in his home. If you are looking for a cozy place to spend some time in this amazing little town, I highly recommend checking out Tofino Travellers. It was very hard to leave.

It's difficult to pin down what makes this place so special. My favourite things were the waffles, the lazy fireplace and the deck, which had a view I'll never forget. Having said that, I think the staff made all the difference. They genuinely care and are respectful, setting the tone for the whole guesthouse. It was great to see guests from so many different backgrounds, from families to individual travellers, all enjoying time together.

A very special place.

I was walking towards the other large hostel in Tofino when I noticed a yellow house, with friendly-looking group of people sitting outside enjoying the sunshine and the view of the ocean. Then when I saw the sign saying it was the cheapest place in Tofino - including breakfast - I was hooked!

I chose a 4 bed dorm which was sparkling new and fresh. here are all the positives for quick readers:
- good wifi
- filling breakfast which is good value for super expensive Tofino
- friendly atmosphere for solo travellers - if you don't make friends here then there is something wrong with you. :-) And having friends helps to explore the rest of tofino.
- helpful owner who gives good advice on tours and lets you use phone for bookings
- Clean, well equipped kitchen that has welcoming atmosphere for cooking meals.
- extra touches like bikes, spices for cooking, maps of local area etc that you would not find in a larger hostel.

My only suggestion would be to build an extra sink and basin outside the main bathroom or another toilet somewhere. There could be a bit of a wait in the morning.

Good luck with the new buildings!
