Nothing particularly negative stood out, just the building itself is a little dated and could do with a freshen up, and the plastic mattresses were a little lumpy and uncomfortable.

such a cosy place. so nice to relax in the rediculously comfy couches while your pizza or risotto is getting ready in the spatious kitchen after a big day of snowboarding the legendary bowls. after enjoying your self cooked meal just go to the kodiak lounge and enjoy some high-quality fernie special beers for the very low price of $4.50 per pint (in canada beer doesn't get any cheaper than this)
