Centrally located in downtown Victoria, Ocean Island has a wide array of rooms to suit your budget and lifestyle. You can choose from comfortable 4 or 6 bed dorms to private rooms in all shapes and sizes. With easy access to public transit, ferries, and the airport, we're a great home base for exploring Victoria and the rest of Vancouver Island.
Looking for privacy? Our mini room option offers the budget conscious traveler a unique solution to Victoria's pricey hotel room market.

Unwind in one of our spacious, peaceful private rooms with ensuite bathrooms instead.
Our fully renovated 1891 heritage building is full of art and life and colour! We have a large, vibrant communal dining area and kitchen. But if you don't feel like cooking, our licensed Ocean Island Cafe Lounge is open daily, serving up healthy fusion-style food at ridiculously cheap prices.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
They wouldn't let me fix the grammatical errors on their quote sign outside.
The bed was very hard. There were idiots yelling outside our window, but what do you expect for downtown. The beds were so hard, we didn't request a different room, so who knows, maybe there were other rooms with good beds.
My overall experience was good. The location was quite good (not in downtown, but at a short walking distance from the main attractions). I stayed in a private room and there was a fridge, which is of value when you are travelling!
The only bad thing was that it was not very clean, though it was acceptable considering the price. Oh, and there was a traffic light for blind people just under my window, which was noisy at night. But I think that when you book it you can choose an inner room!
