We headed back to Vancouver after a couple of days in Victoria, and it was much more welcoming than previously.

This hostel is nor bad, nor good. The dorms are ok, the beds are ok, the price is relatively cheap and there are ISIC and HI discounts. There is also a bar, laundry service and pancakes for breakfast included. The location is very good and the staff friendly. All in all, a good pick.
