Staying at the Painted Turtle Guesthouse on Vancouver Island is an enjoyable, sociable and inexpensive way to visit one of the most incredible islands in the world.

Nanaimo is situated on Central Vancouver Island, and is the ideal basecamp for exploring the whole island. Whether you are coming to British Columbia to surf in Tofino, bungy jump in Nanaimo, hug a tree at Cathedral Grove, take in the unique culture in Victoria or hike on the Northern Island – staying in a clean, comfortable and modern hostel is the only way to go.

Backpackers and students travelling abroad love The Painted Turtle Guesthouse, which offers affordable, safe and centralized accommodation with a reputation for spotlessly clean, comfortable and affordable rooms and dorm beds to backpacking youth and students.

Our large great room with fireplace, lounge and games area is the perfect place to meet other young people, share travel stories and perhaps meet a new lifelong friend. We also offer our guests free use of a modern, well equipped kitchen and comfortable dining room. The grocery store & Fisherman’s Wharf is close by for those interested in cooking themselves up fresh seafood or a self-catered meal.

The Painted Turtle Guesthouse is a Hostelling International (HI) accommodation and a world class facility – a charming blend of European B&B and modern hostel. Winner of the Hostelling International’s 2007 Best Property in Canada – the Painted Turtle Guesthouse looks forward to welcoming Hostelling International and HI Canada members!
