Kelowna International Hostel has a super great atmosphere to it, with all of the people floating about, the colourful murals on the walls, and the homey feel.
Located on the quiet suburban streets of Kelowna, the Kelowna International Hostel is still super close to the downtown area and all of the action. Whatever you need -- whether it be groceries, shopping, or other amenities -- is close at your fingertips. It is quite a way from the Greyhound Station, but if you prearrange it with them, they offer to come and pick you up from the station. If you have arrived by car, there is some street parking available overnight and you will need to ask the staff where the best place to leave your car is.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The hostel is set up like a house and has an amazing atmosphere with the painted walls and corridors. The dorm rooms are spacious and comfortable. They have lockers in each room, which they assign for you to keep all of your stuff and you can secure if you have your own lock. The beds are cozy and have clean fresh linen.
There are two bathrooms, one on the main floor and one in the downstairs floor. The bathrooms are spacious, clean, and they supply floor mats at the door. They also have a take-some/leave-some policy on shampoo and conditioner in case you forget some.
There is a living room with loads of comfy seating and a television for watching movies right in the reception area. They also have a roomy and well-equipped kitchen that they do free cook your own pancake breakfast in the mornings between 7 to 10 a.m. Outside there is a patio area that has tables and chairs for hanging out outside for a drink or dinner.
They have a schedule of events on the wall with a different activity for every night of the week including free dinners and movie nights. The staff here are really friendly and helpful and will help answer any questions that you may have about the hostel or what to do within the area. If in Kelowna, this is the place to be; there is an amazing vibe to the hostel and you won't regret your decision to stay here!
