Reviewed November 9, 2009

I've stayed in many hostels here and abroad and loved my experience at the Cona. Lots of local sites to take in and Ross made sure everyone had a chance to enjoy themselves!

Great location in Courtenay / Comox area, access to everything you want, and a clean / comfy / friendly place! The staff take good care of everything, and are super welcoming..... head to the Cona, you'll be glad you did.

Floating down the river outside the Kona, hiking in Strathcona Park, some of my best memories of last summer. Great staff, affordable, cool guests, number 1 location, this place rocks!

I stayed at the Cona with Brian and Ross for a few months earlier this year! They were awesome and so helpful! Living at the Cona was like a home from home, the atmosphere was great and like having an extended family! Clean, tidy, spacious and safe! Thanks Brian and Ross your the best!!!!

Vibrant, Cozy, Clean, Inviting! What more could you ask for. Couldn't speak more highly of this place. Lovable, down to earth, quick witted staff have an exceptional knowledge and experience of the surrounding area and beyond. Taste of the Valley tour with the Cona Shuttle is a must do to get a glimpse of the local sites and delicacies around town. Visit this little piece of paradise, you won't regret it!

The staff here were so helpful and friendly, the Island has so much to explore the staff are very knowledgeable about all the activities. Really clean, relaxed and in a lovely setting. We stayed during the summer but I hear they can organize shuttles to Mt Washington for skiing in the winter. Can't wait to go back!

A lot of time and effort has gone into setting this little place up and it is fantastic! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and after years of hostels 'hand on my heart' this is the best one I've been too. Hopefully someday, I will get to go there again.

Just around the corner from Mount Washington where you can either ski or go tubing. Both are great days out.
