Staff was very friendly, hostel was clean, and made lots of friends! Traveled alone and felt very connected. Was also the most reasonable priced hostel in the area. I would highly recommended this place and would love to visit again.

Stayed here with my partner for a night to break up the journey from Vancouver to banff. I stayed in the samesun hostel the last time I visited kelowna but decided to stay here as a change purely because it said on their hostel world info that they provided 'free pick up from the greyhound'. Having stayed in kelowna before,...

I spent the summer at this hostel after a winter spent at Big White. This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Yes, it is older than some of the hostels I have stayed at but that's part of the reason why I loved it so much. This place has loads of character and the atmosphere...

Stayed at Kelowna International Hostel for 2 nights to go skiing at Big White - it's about 1 hour drive but much cheaper than staying at the village. Everything in the hostel was clean and neat, kitchen was very well equipped, common area was cosy. Every person gets a huge locker in the room which was great. The only negative...

One of the best hostels I've ever go. We feel home there. They have everything. Wifi is excellent. Staff is friendly. You can walk and enjoy looking at all these arts in the wall. Near hospital. Recommended!

We spend only one night at Kelowna International Hostel, so this review can't be too informative. The price, the friendliness of the staff and the location were good. The double room we spent the night in was located in the basement, facilities were basic and the athmosphere kind of cold. It's okay if you just want to sleep there but...

Very clean Hostel. Friendly and respectful ambiance. Comfortable beds. Well located in Kelowna - near Downtown and bus routes. Affordable. I think I said everything important for a short or long stay. Thank you all.

This is, what I truly call a home! A cozy place to hang out in winter with a very friendly and helpful staff. They offer free pick ups from the Greyhound Station. The hostel itself has a very nice front patio with hammocks, perfect to relax and hang out in summer time. And a very nice bbq patio in the...
