We stayed here for two nights in a shared dorm room. The building is definitely ordered but well presented and very clean. Ammenities are good and wifi work very well in our room. Very central location and staff were helpful and friendly.

Thank you!

Excellent location for shops, beaches, bars and restaurants and for getting picked up for a wine tour. Good kitchen and common area and decent showers. Nice mix of travellers and good place for chatting.

I had a decent stay at HI - Penticton. The hostel is centrally located, clean, comfortable and staff friendly and (mostly) helpful. Be aware that the hostel is in an older wooden building with very thin walls so you hear every creak when people walk around, doors opening/closing

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. It is great to hear that you found the Hostel to be clean and comfortable! The hostel is cooled by way of a swamp cooler in the summer, it is an efficient system that is greatly appreciated by guests and staff as things warm up! If you are returning to Penticton contact me directly to make a booking and I will ensure that you are in a quiet area of the building. Happy Travels! Lisa

I've been here for about a week now getting over the flu and waiting for mail. Penticton is a pretty quiet place it seems. This hostel reflects that, which is fantastic for my needs at this time. I have met a few really nice people here and have had a great amount of time to chil

Hello skychaserCalgary. Thank you for taking the time to review the Hostel. Your comments and concerns are appreciated. I wish you had taken the opportunity to speak to me directly during your stay about your concerns. We all enjoyed hosting your group but wish we could have arranged for warmer weather! The staff do a great job at keeping the century old building tidy and in good working order, and we are inspected annually by our own organization as well we have to adhere to provincial regulations and inspections to maintain our listing in certain publications. Guests are required to wash, dry and put away their own dishes and tidy up as they go along in the kitchen during meal preparation. The staff pick up where the guests leave off and ensure that things are kept in good order, it is unfortunate that you found things to be untidy. As for the little the "train bathroom" that is what we also refer to it as! It is tiny and over the years seems to come in handy during emergencies. I look forward to addressing your other concerns, please contact me directly at your convenience. Lisa Grey-Dreaper Manager

"Be sure to inquire if the room you book is adjacent to a washroom, as some rooms are. Bring ear plugs!"
"Wifi is sometimes sketchy and not in the sleeping areas upstairs."
"Had a private room on the 2nd floor - would recommend"
"There are indivdidual rooms for very reasonable rates too but I chose the dorm for economy and it was only one night."
"We had a private room located in the corner of the building on the second floor, and it was spacious and quiet, with a double bed (in addition to the top bunk single bed). Rooms right next to washrooms, however, could suffer from some noise."
US$29 - US$30 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
