We've stayed here several times over the past few years. My son is now in his last year in high school (Brentwood College School) in Mill Bay, North of Victoria. Connie and I are booking with HI Victoria now for late September.
I'd rate HI Victoria near the very top of my extensive hosteling experience. I've stayed with Connie, with 2-3 children ranging from 8-17, stayed in dorms, private rooms (haven't seen the semi-private rooms, as mentioned above). It's the most fun & enjoyable lodging opportunity in Victoria, IMHO.
Staff can't be beat. Very polite, helpful, and personable, in our experience. Hostel is very clean. Waterfront location *absolutely* can't be beat. Nothing else comes very close. Yes, parking is challenge anywhere in downtown Victoria, but we've never had much of a problem.
Our home is in Anchorage, blanton at mac dot com.
Good food in the neighborhood. Among our favorites are the Pickle for breakfast, and the Pita place just around the corner.
