      The woman that owns this place is very friendly and so helpful. We got treated to an upgrade to the big double room. It was huge and included a sofa and TV area. The other rooms also looked good and we noticed them cleaning every morning.
      The kitchen is pretty small and basic, but then again the hostel itself can't accommodate many, so it's probably never too busy.
      Loved our stay here.

We headed for our campsite and chilled out for a while and then took a walk early evening along the esplanade, we stopped for fish and chips - delish. Watched the sun go down over a bottle of ...

Ian drove us to the airport and 27 hours of travel later, here we are, back in Victoria! We were SO fortunate that Keely was at a meeting in Vancouver, so she picked ...
