This is an HI-affiliated hostel, and is very well-run. It's conveniently located in the main area of the town of Tofino, so you can walk to most amenities.

The hostel is a fairly new building, and nicely decorated throughout. The private rooms are basic, as they usually are in hostels, but I was pleasantly surprised to find besides the usual chair and naked lightbulb, a set of drawers with mirror, and also bedside lamps, plus a framed picture on the wall.

Unique Qualities: Being located in a very popular destination, The kitchen area can become quite crowded, and for the money we saved ( accommodation costs at least a third of what is found in the area) we should have just ate out. In the evening, the living area can become quite crowded as well. There are nice touches here and there -- an aquarium with exotic fish, plus a tv room with a big screen tv. A coin laundry is at the back of the building.

You can't beat the view of the ocean from the dining area, and the staff are very helpful and accomodating.
