Ocean Island Inn Backpackers Suites Victoria Reviews
Everything you want in a hostel Dec 10, 2012
I spent two nights in this Victoria hostel, after "splurging" on a hotel the first night. The next time I go to Victoria, Ocean Island will be getting all of my business, and I encourage other travellers to stay there as well.
I stayed in a private double (I was in the city for Pride Week, and it was nice to have a private space to retreat to in between events), on the third floor. I had a very clean, comfortable bed, a window that opened, letting in lots of fresh air, and some shelf space, even!
The building is very secure and favourably located - 5 minute walk to Chinatown, 20 minute walk to the inner harbour. The desk staff are polite and friendly, and are happy to sell you a banana or a cookie whenever you fancy it.
Hanging out with other travellers in the attached bar/restaurant/kitchen was great. The cheap, tasty food draws a decent crowd, so there was always someone to talk to.
I will definitely return to this hostel.
