We came in after midnight on the ferry and they stayed up for us (and one other passenger) so appreciated that! People leave around free coffee there, so took advantage of that, plus made friends with some Aussies who were there as well. It was very difficult to find late at night and the folks at the hostel kept on expecting we'd get there by taxi - unfortunately there wasn't much in the way of taxi service at that hour and fortunately I had a car. The bedrooms have nice little things about them; wavy mirrors, nice bedspreads, etc. that are way above what you'd usually get at a hostel but then again, the Black Rooster charges more than the typical hostel. The one misunderstanding is I thought the maid automatically did the room but she never did - turns out I had to put a sign on the door asking her to make the beds, which was odd. The internet connection was good; it's about a mile from the waterfront so a bit far if you have to depend on public transport. But it's close to the library and not too far from a Safeway.
Also appreciated that fact that someone overseeing the hostel kept the kitchen neat; hostels can be really messy in that regard if someone isn't overseeing that area. There isn't someone at the front desk much of the day, so be prepared for that.

Room Tip: I liked being on the 2nd floor

The apartment was new and clean. The receptionist (a young Italian woman) was friendly and accommodating.
Everything worked out just fine except that some of the food we stored in the communal fridge was stolen.

A very nice guy from Italy at the reception encountered us and explained us everything about the hotel and the town. Although we booked for a 4 bed-room, we got a grade up and had a beautiful apartment which was ideal for our family. The apartment was pretty new and very clean.

We stayed here fore the first time and loved it! We are a family of 5 and booked a 2 BR 2 Bath apartment, it was perfect for us! We had plenty of room for all of us, having our own kitchen was an added bonus to cook our breakfast before going fishing. A great place to stay and will definitely recommend it.

We've stayed here before, but each time has been a revelation. The 3 C's of diamonds (cut, clarity, and carats) and the 3 C's of "value accommodation" (Clean, Comfortable, and Cheap) are equally important. The Black Rooster has been consistently reliable. In Prince Rupert you can't beat 'em.
