Beautiful location, it is a nice place to stay if you are around takakkaw falls! Not easy to get there by night, just try to check how to get there before.

This is a wonderful remote Hostel - don't expect five stars. Clean, safe, nice. Full of hikers, bikers, climbers. :-)
Great Hostel placed close to Takakkaw's falls...amazing! Warning...I advise who wants to spend a night or more in Whiskey Jack to recharge early the cameras and phones mobile, because there isn't electric current!!
Due to the quaint style of the hostel voices carry throughout the whole building and for us this was disturbing so early in the morning. Those having breakfast at 6am did not use their small voices. Nonetheless the hostel was very accommodating and we enjoyed our stay thank you.
If you are keen to stay somewhere beautiful you should come here. There is no electricity, but you hardly even notice. Still has hot showers, gas lamps, gas fridge. It is only accessible if you have your own car, but we loved our stay. Super friendly and helpful people who run it, and you meet lots of great people there. There are hikes to do nearby, and it is right near the waterfalls. My only tip is bring food with you, there are no shops nearby!
The man in charge of the hostel was extremely nice: when we arrived, we had to cancel the second night we had booked and he accepted without a fuss. The hostel is located in a beautiful place. And it has a shower, with hot water! A treat after a few days camping. There's a heater in the room so the two top bunk beds are really warm but the bottom bunk can be quite cold. The kitchen is fully equiped. Great place to stay at for a change of scenery!
