Victoria has been the capital of British Columbia since 1871. The Victoria Hostel, housed in a beautiful heritage building in the city's historic downtown centre, is close to the picturesque waterfront, the legislature buildings, and the Royal British Columbia Museum. The Victoria hostel makes a perfect base for exploring Vancouver Island!

The Victoria Hostel has various facilities on offer including, Internet access, TV room, common room, self-catering kitchen and laundry facilities. Groups, families and individual travellers are all welcome and with a games room, guests have a great opportunity to meet other people from around the world.

Guests can take one of the free walking tours on offer with a local volunteer and discover the beauty of Victoria off the beaten path. Victoria has so much to see from heritage architecture and a vibrant arts scene to outdoor adventures, and breath-taking rainforests and mountains. There really is something for everybody.

Das Internet funktionierte nicht richtig. Stromanschlüsse im Schlafsaal waren wenige. Die Bettwäsche wurde mir nach der ersten Nacht einfach weggenommen. Da ich den Schlafsack ohnehin standardmässig gebrauche hat es mich nicht extrem gestört. Die Lage ist gut und auch gut erreichbar.

I was bit worried when I heard that I was going to be staying in one giant dorm. However, I thought it worked well, the stay was quiet and comfortable, and the hostel was clean. The nature of the room meant that it felt slightly less secure than some of the other hostels I have stayed in, but I appreciate that there are lockers. I would recommend this hostel to fellow travellers.
