    One of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at. Manager Juliane Mark is exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful, and conscientious. A rare find, and a gem of a place to stay in Prince Rupert. Highly recommended.

    An attractive guesthouse - my room, though small, was very clean and comfortable - the shared bathrooms were always clean - there is a garden with sitting area and a well-equipped kitchen - the staff are super-helpful - what more could you want?
