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.

Hi, Overall Good rating. The bad: we booked a co-ed room (me and girl friend). To what I overheard as no-more space, our 8 person room ended up being 6 males -> two couples and a four male group. This added some unease with my partner, and we ended up having to spend a night elsewhere our second planned night in Victoria.

Great location and pretty cheap. There is a kitchen, but it is not very good equipped
