    This hostel is a truly beautiful one; let's start with the location right next to the bay area, you can't get lost when you're right next to the water and it is in close proximity to everything. Second, it is spacious, with a lovely environment where you can meet different people without being too cramped up in space, with many facilities and services that can really make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable (especially when travelling with friends as it had many spacious common living areas.

    HI Victoria is in a great location close to everything downtown. The staff are really friendly and provide complementary breakfast every morning. The beds aren't that comfortable but it is a quiet atmosphere with ample kitchen and lounge space. It is a great deal for the price!

    Was in 40-person room, which sucked because of a couple snorers. The beds were small and hard to stretch out because of boards surrounding them (I'm 6'1"). No outlets by bed. Could barely fit in showers. Decent lockers. Breakfast was basically toast and the kitchen area where they put it was crowded (one easy idea is to place coffee elsewhere so not everyone is going to same small space).

    I spent 6 nights at the HI Victoria. Although I apprehended the 44-bed room, it wasn't that bad. People were respectful and the noise level wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Facilities needed a bit if TLC. From a security standpoint, people could easily walk in and out of the hostel despite the "locked" door and when I arrived the locker I was assigned didn't have a door - so I had to request another one. Overall, 6 night may have been too much, but I would recommend for a short stay.

    This hostel needs a lot of work. Not up to date like most Hostelling Internationals. Felt like there were homeless seniors living there. Shower area was not very private and the bedroom area had too many beds in it. Not private feeling or comfortable. The breakfast 'coffee" came with powdered milk which was gross so I didn't end up having any, and bread for toast doesn't really count as "breakfast", does it?! Not impressed with this hostel. Needs a ton of improvements...
