I loved this place, but not for its quality. Our stay was hilarious and we still have running gags about it. Communication with the owner for booking was already "interesting" but all worked out fine. We arrived by chance at the same time as a big group and were told that we should have arrived earlier or later. Well how... More

We had a trip planned to Kelowna, and we booked at this location two months beforehand. We booked a 2nd floor bedroom for 50 CAD. When we got there, the owner did not pick up the phone, and she was 1 hour late to the appointment time. By the time she got to us, she said "It's all because of... More

Dirty, filthy, disgusting, rude....adjectives which apply equally do the rooms and the owner. This is NOT a hostel....it is a half-way house, flop house, boarding house. We slept in our sleeping bags on the beds with our own pillows because the quilts were so filthy. Woke up, packed up and left without showering or partaking of the cold bagels and... More

This place is terrible. Nothing in the picture tells you that the bedroom and hallways smell like cat pee; the kitchen is smelly, dirty, and shared with other people; bedroom is cluttered with awkward furniture and the bed sheets are old and it smells; worst of all, the owner is crazy. Any amount for any unused days, regardless of reason,... More

I really hated this place. I shortened my stay and booked another room far from this hostel. Except the location there is nothing to like about this place. The girls bathroom is located upstairs. So you need to cross the corridor, walk through the kitchen, take a steep stairs, walk through another corridor. How was I supposed to do that... More

Oddest hostel I have stayed in. The lady at the desk "Lee" was very unfriendly and a little strange. She was not very forthcoming with information and zero people skills. I asked how she liked Kelowna and she told me she didn't like the people. Never gave me a tour but when I came back later the only real communal... More

If you need to stay here, be patient. The place is OK but you'll have to deal with some eccentricities from the owner. Besides that, be aware that if you book online, she'll charge you taxes when you get there.

I decided to stay at Kelowna Okanagan Lake Hostel because I was refused lodging at Kelowna International Hostel for not being an "International Traveller" (see my review on Tripadvisor for details). Upon arrival the owner asked me why I had chosen her hostel, and I related the above story. Her curt reply was "No, that's not correct". I said, "Yes,... More
