Property Description

The Riding Fool Hostel is located in Cumberland on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. We're in the historic Tarbells building, a heritage ediface from the late 1800's, which we've updated to include a comfortable common room with a wood stove and pool table, a well-stocked kitchen, and cozy dorm rooms with lockers.

We share the Tarbells building with Dodge City Cycles and Tarbells Cafe. Partnering with these fantastic businesses means that our guests have ready access to bike rentals, local trail knowledge, wholesome food, and kick-ass coffee.

Cumberland offers a wealth of adventures to the recreation-minded. We are 24 minutes from the lifts of Mount Washington, down the road from swimming and rock climbing at Comox Lake, and world-class mountain bike trails are just out the back door.
For those looking for a more laid-back experience, we have a museum and art gallery in town, as well as self-guided historic tours of the village.

12% tax not included in the online rates.
Our goal at the Riding Fool Hostel is to provide quality accommodation to the independent traveler in a fun, safe, and social environment. There's always lots of activities to do, summer or winter. So come join the fun!



We have a 48 hour cancellation policy. View House Rules

    Honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Keah was amazingly friendly and helpful and the hostel was clean, spacious, comfortable and beautiful to just look at. There is a pool table and darts in the common room with cards and board games also. Bathrooms are impeccably clean. Great experience!

    Beautiful little village, rooms were very spacious and clean. The kitchen had a lot of cooking equipment. The lounge room was huge and had darts and pool which was free!! An awesome stay would stay again if in the area.

    Very Good

    A lovely presented hostel though a bit tricky to get to without a car. I was a bit worried that the dorm room doors actually had no lock on them, meaning that anyone could go between the rooms or even from outside if no one was by the downstairs door. Also, the noise from the common room was quite echoey during the night when others were playing pool. Comfy beds though and great private bathrooms.
