Hostel / Inn / Budget Hotel with Cafe, and pet friendly Suites by the park and ocean.

Here’s what the top guidebooks have to say about us:

“This colorful hostel boasts a better lounge than many clubs, a fantastic staff, and accommodations comparable to many hotels. Undoubtedly one of the finest urban hostels in Canada. The Victoria Guide on their website is a great and in depth guide to some of the more out of the way places in the city.”
- Let’s Go USA/Canada 2005

“Ocean Island is more than a hostel, it’s an experience – an experience akin to being kidnapped by 100 of your closest friends… The large, exuberantly friendly place has… spacious common areas.. Full of life and art.. both the young and the young at heart will feel right at home, and front desk staff go the extra mile to be helpful. If you’re looking for plain ol’ fun, staying at this super-colourful hostel is a good start”
- Lonely Planet Various Editions 2001-2005
