Check out the CONA Hostel while staying in Courtenay - Comox area of Vancouver Island
by Keith and Heather Nicol
There are many styles of rooms
If you are
looking for a friendly place to stay in the Courtenay-Comox area on Vancouver Island then look no further than the
CONA Hostel in Courtenay. We recently stayed there for 2 weeks while looking
for a place to rent for the winter and we were very impressed with the hostel’s
great location and its overall ambience. It is located on the Courtenay River
and is close to shops, restaurants, groceries and walking trails. If you are there
in the summer then mountain biking and sea kayaking are at your doorstep and in
the winter Mt.Washington is just 30
minutes away for winter activities like cross country and alpine skiing.
The CONA Hostel is located on the Courtenay River
The CONA Hostel
has lots of options for rooms from dorm style to private and family rooms.
There is even a suite which sleeps 8. There is a fully equipped double kitchen
and lounge area which also has wireless internet and lots of games. Linens are provided and there are also several
storage lockers. Rates are very reasonable and start at just $21.90. If you are looking for clean and comfortable accommodations housed in a restored historic building then have a look at the CONA hostel in downtown Courtenay. For more
