Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

6 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


8 Bed Dorm - Male only (Shared bathroom)


6 Bed Dorm - Female only (Shared bathroom)


6 Bed Dorm - Male only (Shared bathroom)

Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

Budget Double (Shared bathroom)


Budget Single (Shared bathroom)

About The Turtle Hostel

An old Victorian house full of character and just renovated throughout, under new ownership
Conveniently downtown, one can get to nearly everywhere on foot inside 10 minutes, or pick up a bus within a block. Beaches, Inner Harbor, Nightlife and Malls are close by. It is also unquestionably the cheapest deal to be found in Victoria, with weekly rates even easier on the traveler's budget.

The homey feel lends itself to socializing and getting feedback about places all over Canada and the rest of the world.

A really multicultural trampoline from which to explore Vancouver Island and British Columbia or to chill out for a while after coming from the buzz of a large city

Victoria is unique and the Turtle Refuge Hostel makes sure your stay is unique too.
