Lodging in Canada is generally expensive, ok, but THIS was a joke! We paid 365 Canadian dollars for 2 nights in a double room, shared bathroom and restroom (men on the ground floor, women on the first floor). Not even a sink in the bedroom. Breakfast is poor (no not everybody likes oatmeal), and you have to clean your dishes... More

This lodge is a peaceful haven for the weary traveller. This doesn't compare to a typical hotel, its a timber lodge and is an opportunity to connect with Tofino. The beach is a 10 minute walk, watch the sunset/sunrise, have a beer at the brewery on the way home and enjoy the space. It may be fairly pricey, but thats... More

We paid 550 canadian dollars for three nights in a twin. Room was very clean and the rooms were nicely maid but for the money I expected more. There was no where to hang the towels. You have to do your own washing up even after breakfasts. Shared toilets and showers mean you rely on others being considerate after use.... More

We have done a trip of Vancouver Tofino and Victoria staying in hotels, private accommodation and the Ecolodge which was my favourite! We've never stayed in a hostel before but as we had a teenage son we thought we'd try so we booked a suite with our own bathroom and were delighted. NOTE not all rooms have ensure bathrooms.

A high quality hostel feel. Being vegan we really appreciated the focus taken on simplicity and sustainability. The rooms and bathroom were very clean. It's only a 1/2 hour walk to town and accessible by a bike path. The continental breakfast was great with homemade muffins, porridge, fresh fruit and nuts, juice, fresh bread from local bakery, natural peanut butter... More

I just attended a wonderful yoga retreat that took place here. I was delighted with the clean, cozy, magical environment at ecolodge. I would highly recommend this spot, especially with a group. We had the space to ourselves. It's like staying at your own private estate in the forest.

A nice laid back place to be. You can meet people easily due the kitchen and general eating/lounge rooms. Breakfast served is all home made. Yummy! Very wholesome! The gardens are pleasant to walk around.

The gardens, lodge and service are excellent and most beautiful. Have stayed her twice and would return again. Great value for the money and an amazing eco experience. If you love a more alternative space that centers around nature, this is it! Great breakfasts.
