Nick's Guesthouse in Tofino is an absolutely beautiful place, with a cozy and friendly atmosphere. Nick's personality brings out great qualities in people as he kindly offers any help he can to his guests, and always brings up good conversation. My experience there was wonderful filled with meeting good people and sharing some nice meals. Not that it is necessary to give ones food away, but it seems there was always someone in the mood for sharing. One night a group of people brought in a bunch of crabs they had just caught and a feast was made and shared with all. A friendly place with friendly people and comfortable beds, you'll enjoy your stay there. Not to mention the view of the harbor!

Whether you're traveling on a tight budget or you are looking for an organic experience, Nick's Tofino Traveller's Guesthouse is one heck of an experience it is owned and operated by Nick. My girlfriend and I wanted to travel to "Tuff City" during our reading break. We are students and don't have a lot of money and Nick's rates for our bedroom with private bathroom were EXTREMELY affordable and comfortable. We both have high standards when it comes to cleanliness and Nick's house did not disappoint. I was very happy with the comfortability of the bed, room, bath and environment that he has setup there. Every morning we were anticipating the waffles that Nick promised to make and we also enjoyed meeting other guests there. It is a very welcoming place for EVERYONE. We plan to come back and know that Nick would love to have us back! Young or old, poor or rich, check out Nick's guesthouse and enjoy all that he has to offer! Nick, you are too kind. The greta part about this whole thing was how hospitable Nick is, he offers up plenty of ideas for things to do, is informative and can tell you where some interesting places are to visit depending on month and season. I have no complaints about this business.

Tofino is quite 'touristy' and it's not that easy to find reasonable accommodation, so I would definitely recommend staying here. There are dorms and some double rooms. We stayed in the latter- there wasn't really any view out the window, but the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.
Tofino Travellers Guesthouse is great for meeting people with the communal, well-equipped kitchen & diningroom. I think Nick is the real selling-point: friendly and knowledgeable. Don't book any activities (e.g. kayaking, surfing) until you've talked to him first!
They also went 'the extra mile' for me, having gluten-free pancake mix instead of waffles.

Great facilities, beautiful view, comfortable bed, warm fireplace, musical instruments, local wisdom and insight. Very reasonably priced. What more could you want? Nick insisted on waking up with us at 6am to make us homemade waffles. We had wonderful conversations about Tofino, nature, family, music, and life. We will be staying with you next time we're on your fair island.

I spent an extended period time at the tofino travellers guest house and i must say if you go to tofino, this is the place you want to stay. The Clean and relaxed atmosphere and great price make this place a gem. The thing i enjoyed most about this guest house is the sense of feeling at home, with its warm cozy wood fire place and large inviting kitchen, and the best free waffle breakfast this side of beligum!! Everything you need, groceries, liqour store, and the water are all within a block or two at most! The owner Nick is a good guy and is always trying to push you in the right direction in order for you to best enjoy your tofino experience! I give this place two thumbs up, if i had more, i would give it four! I hope you enjoy your stay as much as i did! Cheers :)

Nick's guesthouse is in a perfect location, has a patio with an awesome view of Clayoquot sound, and it's cheap to stay there. But that's just what you get on top. The real charm of staying there is Nick's and his staff's hospitality and the fact that you easily meet interesting people. I've stayed at 30+ hostels and guesthouses so far, and I consider this to be one of the top 3, if not the best.
I had a great time there, and a thousand thank yous to Nick, who mailed me my glasses (forgot them in the bathroom).
