The WiFi is unusably slow and randomly disconnects ~ would not recommend for those who may rely on the internet to make plans

The hostel was very empty so hard to judge how it would be in full season. The staff member who checked us in wasn't friendly or willing to help however the lady staff member that evening was great and chatted to us and told us what was happening in the area. I was a little concerned when a guy keep coming in and out asking for things from us that clearly wasn't staying there.

It is unfortunate that this guest did not receive the outstanding customer service that we are generally known for. I am glad that her experience with another staff member was better. This is our low season and the Hostel is quiet. I suspect the "guy" that was asking for things was a guest. I encourage this guest to get in touch with me directly as I would like to offer an apology and extend an invitation to come back when it's busier in the Hostel.

Cleanliness of kitchen discouraged using facilities. Staff was not very welcoming or enthusiastic. Wireless internet connection was poor, did not work upstairs in the dorms.

Thank you for your feedback. I am truly sorry that you did not receive the warm welcome that the HI Penticton staff are commonly known to offer. The on duty staff should have addressed any kitchen issues if there were dishes left unwashed. Our wireless issues have been resolved. I invite you to contact me directly as I would like to extend an invitation to you to return for a complimentary night. Thank you again for taking the time to note your concerns.
