“Better for the couples than the lonely traveller....”
Reviewed 8 July 2010

I fear the location of the hostel (in Ucluelet) is going to spoil my overall review of the hostel - Ucluelet has been referred to Tofino's ugly little sister and sadly I have to agree. However the hostel was neat and tidy, the kitchen well equipped for everything you need to make a decent meal, and the beds large and clean. The guys running it were really helpful
in reccomending stuff to do and the best places to eat and get coffee. The open fire was a welcomed extra when it got a little cold in the evening.

However the area is more suited to couples rather than the lone traveller - or the traveller with a car. Everything is as accessible as if you were in Tofino if you have a car, however if you do not the lack of food places and excursions can make Ucluelet very sleepy.

Reviewed 16 August 2009

We rented this cottage for a few nights recently and thought it was great. Comfortable to sleep two couples, little tight for four in the living room but you didn't come here to sit around the house did you? Very quaint and rustic in a good way. Surfs Inn is right in town on the forest side as opposed to the ocean side. 40 minute drive to Tofino. Good restaurants within walking distance. Comes with a propane bbq which is great for cooking some fresh seafood from the store next door.

Bring your own salt and pepper. ;)

We stayed in one of their private cottages, rather than the hostel as we were a party of 4. It had a full kitchen, BBQ and deck and was very clean and nicely decorated. A great find for a very reasonable price.

Reviewed 29 May 2009

We stayed here 3 nights in a double bed in a dorm. For $40 a night, this was a great deal. The place is very clean, everything one would need is there, and they offer surf lessons out of their surf shop. There are no locks on doors (locker closets are available for belongings), but Ucluelet and this guest house is so laid back that it really doesn't matter. I would highly recommend to budget travelers. Plus, Ucluelet is better than Tofino, way less people with just as much to do.
If I had to point out something negative, it would be that the upstairs shower is very tiny and won't accomodate someone taller than 5'6". Ultimately, this place was great, exceeded my expectations.
