  • My wife and I had a clean, very efficient, and modern private room for two. Staff was great! When we asked for a change to the 2nd story (instead of the 3rd), they were very accommodating. Our room had a window on the street--very nice.The only problem we had was that for the first of two stays, we had a room with a very strong cleaning-agent perfume scent. But the kitchen, lounge, & bathrooms were large, clean, and modern with lots of utilities and dinnerware. Showers worked well, too.

  • Here is located at the lovely downtown of Nanaimo. A supermarket nearby was a plus! Thanks to the clean, spacey, and warmly heated common area/dormitory, I could get really relaxed. I request only to update the Map/direction of this site to tell how to get to this place from Departure Bay Ferry terminal.
