I was here in July 2013 and was definitely one of the best hostels I stayed in during my one month trip though western Canada. Very welcoming hosts (!!), clean and I loved the interior design! Cozy, homely and comfortable. I would definitely recommend visiting once you are looking for a quiet , nice place to stay. Also if you're not into mountain biking (like me)!
