This was my first time staying in a hostel, so I didn't know what to expect. It was awesome, just like staying at someone's house. The only rules were "if you come home late, nobody wants to hear you". Which was fair and there was no issues regarding noise. This place is clean, quiet and safe. I stayed in the...

The manager here is most helpful, even arriving late at night. The location is great, the prices fair, a clean well managed Hostel/Guesthouse. There are both private rooms and dorm rooms here, your best value in Powell River.

My friend just bought a place in Powell River. In September, when looking for homes, we spent a night at the Courthouse Inn, which was great, rooms are eccentric and eclectic and the cafe is excellent. But this time to PR we decided to try the Hostel, after all, it's late November, we're just going to sleep there and go...

I stayed here with my brother and father whom both had never stayed at a hostel before. We had an incredible experience. The manager is what makes this place such a gem on top of everything else. It is so well cared for, accessible (right on the ocean at the ferry terminal) and stunning views. This hostel has been my...

As a respite from noisy overcrowded campsites we took a punt on this place and were more than pleasantly surprised. The private room with its own balcony overlooking the sea is lovely and very restful. The hostel isn't new or flash but it's spotlessly clean and well equipped. Very handy for the ferry terminal and a short walk up to...

“Savory Sweet is private with a private deck. Enough room for two people.”

“I don't think there are any bad rooms in that place, so I can only recommend to ask for a room that faces the water, to have a nice view when you wake up in the morning.”
