If you’re looking for a steal of a deal in budget accommodation, the Ucluelet Oceanfront Hostel might be just the ticket. It’s part of the C&N Backpackers Hotels group (they also have properties in Vancouver, Tofino, and Port Hardy), and while the accommodation is pretty minimalistic, it is clean, and above all, dry, which is not something to sneeze at if you land here during a rainstorm. Those looking for a real bargain can book a dorm bed; there are also a handful of private rooms available. Plus the hostel has its own private beach and offers recommendations for local pubs, so you know it’s going to be a fun hangout.
