    We operate a 49 person capacity hostel located in Prince Rupert. We focus on providing a family oriented, friendly and laid back environment where guests can relax and meet fellow travelers. We also take great pride in providing a green friendly hostel - recycling facilities and organic cleaning products are used on site. We are always looking for support with smaller or bigger projects and will make sure you wont get bored here!

    Our location in the Pacific Northwest is near the harbor and right in the middle of Prince Rupert's tourism district (cute shops, restaurants, pub, you name it!). Here you can relax and get your breathe back, meet other travelers and make new friends.

    What else ...

    Prince Rupert is the last Canadian town before the Alaskan border on the magical West Coast of BC. Deer in the backyard, orcas in the harbour, bald eagle fights right above your head while you munch a muffin in our favorite coffee shop down the road, and the most beautiful rainbows you can imagine. Yeah! That's Prince Rupert how we love it.

    The town is a travel hub for people heading west to Haida Gwaii, North to Alaska, south to Vancouver Island and east towards the Rocky Mountains. Summer is our busiest time of the year with lots of travelers coming to town. Things to do while you are here: kayaking, hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing (grizzly bear and whale watching), berry picking, and and aaaaand.

    You're too busy for a visit this summer? Well, we are open year round! Fall/winter is the less busy time of the year, but there is still fun stuff happening: Crafts fairs, All Native Basketball Tournament (February), and some excellent skiing at Shames Mountain Co-op - finest powder snow and probably Canada's friendliest and most relaxed ski hill is just about 1 hour drive away!

    Sounds like the place you want to stop by for some workaway this this year? Send us an email - we can't wait to meet you :)
