Q: What is a hostel?

A: The main feature of hostels is the dorm style rooms that are available. Instead of renting a whole room, you would just rent an individual bed. Hostels also have cooking facilities where you can make your own meals. It is a cheap way to travel and meet lots of other travelers.

Q: How do I get to "The Mall?"

A: It's just a block and a half walk and then a 25 minute bus ride on express bus 100 or a 35 minute ride on bus 1.


Q: I have a Hostelling Membership card/other hostel discount card, would you accept it?

 A: Yes we do! It would be our pleasure to accept your Hostelling membership or whatever hostel discount card you may have,  Please present it at check in and you'll automatically receive 10% off per night! Please ensure that it is valid and is under the name of the person checking in! 


Q: When is GO Backpackers opening up locations in other areas?

A: There are many locations on our radar throughout Western Canada where a backpackers hostel would be welcome.  We are continually researching and welcome potential investors and partners for our expansion plans.  Email us for a prospectus if you want more information.
