I had a terrific time visiting Victoria and staying at HI-Victoria for three nights. The only thing I wanted was a nice comfortable couch next to the window in the women's D dorm to read on in the evenings (against the wall and not in the fire lane to the men's dorm.) Otherwise, I loved the staff and the facilities. Thank you!!

A very pleasant stay at this hostel in Victoria that I would recommend to anyone (the city, and the place !). The staff was very friendly, the dorms were clean and nicely arranged. The only problem I had was with the showers, which had no hot water twice in my 5-day stay (for an unknown reason).

The kitchen is rubbish and needs a massive overhaul you would be better off cooking on a camp fire, all the utensels are cr#p.

Centrally located within in the heart of Victoria, so a great place to be if you want to close to its urban charms. Friendly committed staff!

Unlike what other reviews says there was no homeless and/or drunk people while we stayed at this hostel. Male dorm is 40 beds separated in blocks of 4 bunk beds. It can be noisy at night because of snoring people, etc. and at some occasions it smelt weed and alcohol.... Bathrooms are rather clean. Don't expect to have a lot of intimacy here. The staff was nice and helpful. However we didn't met a lot of people, and most of the customers were over 35-40 years old, which was quite weird for us..
