The location was great. I took the ferry from Vancouver to Victoria, then the bus, which dropped us off right downtown. From the hostel, it's a short 10 minute walk to the waterfront. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, so they stored our bags as we explored the city. When I got back at night, I got a private room on the first floor. At first I was worried that it would be too noisy, but it wasn't a problem. And the bathroom was right across the hall. The bed was comfortable. The room had a fan, table, 2 chairs and a small fridge. Just what we needed for an affordable place to stay. A good value.
