I took the ferry through the San Juans from Bellingham over to Victoria for a weekend trip and this was the only hostel I could find that had a vacancy. What a dump. I've stayed in hundreds of hostels on 4 different continents and this is the 2nd worst I've ever encountered. It's tiny, filthy, crammed, staff is rude, there is a 20$ key deposit, and it's in a dirty/bad part of Victoria. The beds are seriously old prison beds, so uncomfortable and vinyl wrapped.
I was to stay there 3 nights, after the first night I decided to pack up and leave first thing in the morning. They wouldn't refund any money for the next two nights since I'd already paid. Lame.
My advice is to stay anywhere in Victoria but here.
