Lonely Planet BC & Yukon Travel Guide, 4th Ed.

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. In a very compact space we offer all the benefits of a private room- privacy, a comfortable bed, your own mini fridge- at a fraction of the cost of a regular hotel room. Not your style? 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.
