It was an excellent location, you can find grocery and bus stop very close by!!! around 10 mins walk to all the restaurants and café, it is located on the main street: Bernard Avenue. Room is not very updated but it is absolutely...

Hello my traveling friends, I am an international traveling photographer. The most recent trip was to Cuba a couple of weeks ago. You can find my reviews on this and photography related travel sites. After spending the better part of this year on the road, I found my bank account was depleting quite rapidly. So instead of spending big bucks...

This is what you get for try to help somebody who is unable to pay for their room, this individual offered to do some cleaning work around the hostel in exchange for payment of his bed. When I was not happy with his performance, I asked him to leave and as result he wrote these mean spirited comments, obviously to...

This is a terrible hostel. The female bathrooms have no dividers or privacy, the male bathrooms are the same and one morning there was a guy washing his dog in the basin. "Free breakfast" is one hard boiled egg and a stale bagel. The "common room" is a hall way with a TV in it. The owner/manager is a complete...

My daughter and I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in October. The hostel is very clean, quiet and comfortable. The location is super convenient, just walk a few steps to Safeway and Shoppers Drug Market. Ms Maggie, the owner of the hostel, is very nice, friendly and thoughtful. She works hard to keep the hostel well maintained. My...

The place is ok if you want to stay for one night. But if you are planning to stay a long time in Kelowna, don't recommend this place because the male bathroom is gross especially the toilet seats because they looked like they are covered by urine. In addition, there's an urinal right beside the sink without any divider in...

This is one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at and I highly recommend it to any budget-conscious traveler passing through town or those staying longer to explore Kelowna. The owner, Maggie, is friendly and approachable and makes sure to keep the hostel clean and well-maintained. Compared to other hostels, it's much quieter and cleaner. There are flowers in the...
