My husband and I spent time in both the Rockies and BC/Vancouver Island, and both are in firm agreement that our five nights in Field were the best (we extended our stay, we loved it so much!). The hostel is beautiful and well designed. It is more expensive than other hostels, but it is well worth the money. Everything is spotless, the lounge/kitchen area is a great place to chill out and meet other people. The owner was fantastic, interested in what you were up to and gave great tips about what to do in the area.
FIeld itself is a small village, with not a lot going on, but that makes not a lot of difference if you are in a lively hostel with a social area. Overall, fantastic.
