Hostelling is primarily about experience. The Sun Peaks Hostel gives just that, an experience. One can talk about the various amenities, cozy accommodations and wonderful location. But at the true heart of this special place is the sense of being at a home away from home with others from around the world. Once upon a time I depended on the...

Nice, cozy hostel right the Beginning of Sun Peaks. Though we never met staff personally, communication via phone and e-mail worked everything out. We loved the big social room with its well equiped kitchen and tv- perfect place to meet other guests. We also enjoyed the laundry for 5$.

I stayed here with my 8 year old son in a private double that was clean with fresh bedding and plenty of storage space. In addition to a cupboard with three shelves we each had two hanging organizers with 6-8 compartments for storing our clothing and other items. There is space for boot and ski suit storage at the entrance...

we had a private room; place was great, clean and plenty of in/out boarding access - a lock on your room door or open the patio decks would be my only recommendation, oh and maybe another bathroom on the top floor... but I loved it - thanks guys

AWESOME is the word that describes this place. The hosts Darlene and Andy definitely know to make a hostel a home to all their guests. I can't recommend it any higher to anyone considering hostelling in Sun Peaks. It would have to be the best value accommodation on the mountain. For those that haven't ever hostelled, this would be a...

NO STAFF WAS available from 5 pm till morning. We let ourselves into free room after waiting 1 hour. No key, towel or soap to take shower after 5 hours travel. HEALTH SAFETY CONCERN: domestic dogs freely roaming in common kitchen where we prepared our meals. FIRE HAZARD: electric wires installed not up to BC code, attic rooms are heated...

This place is owned and run by a family and its whole atmosphere is of a big commune. apart from its obvious and well mentioned plus sides such as highly equipped kitchen, multiple restrooms with never ending hot water, cozy living room and great location just across from the lift, that place embraces you from the moment you knock on...

Stayed three occasions this summer. This is by far the cleanest and most well equipped kitchen bar none. There is a horrendous amount of equipment for many people, not just a couple. Large commercial fridges and freezers. Lots of communal use spices etc. Six clean individual washrooms and showers, lots of hot water. And as said earlier, that mountain air...

Good close location to Sun Peaks resorts & reasonable layout & rooms but the bathrooms were filthy & didn't appear to get cleaned in the two days we were there. The host was too busy working at other jobs in the resort. This could be such an awesome place to stay of it has been clean.

My friend and I stayed in the private double outside of ski season. It felt like a home away for home. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything from spices to cutlery and the fridge and freezer storage opportunities definitely helped us out. The Wi-Fi was fast and the resident dog was extremely friendly. We would absolutely stay there...
