Tofino Hostel - Whalers On The Point Guesthouse

We are an award-winning, family-friendly, mid-size guesthouse/hostel in beautiful Tofino - on the Westcoast of Canada. We focus on providing a family oriented and laid back environment where guests can relax and meet fellow travelers from Canada and all around the world. Our hostel is the perfect spot for exploring the Tofino/ Clayoquot Sound area. We are located on the water right in downtown Tofino with breath-taking (one million dollar!) views of Clayoquot Sound and the 5,000-year-old village of Opitsat, a community of the Tla-o-qui-aht people and Nuu-chah-nulth nation. We also take great pride in providing a green friendly guesthouse/hostel - we recycle, compost and strive to use sustainable cleaning products whenever possible.

We are a small, family-like team from all around the world (all in our mid-twenties to mid/end thirties). We are NOT (!) a party place. We are the perfect spot to meet people interested in the outdoors, nature, culture and all the beautiful things Tofino and this part of Vancouver Island has to offer. We are looking for friendly, mature and respectful volunteers to join us here in Tofino.

The atmosphere was very familial, the staff (most of them also live there) are all very easy-going and open-minded people. Even during winter there's plenty of things to do in nature around Tofino, from surfing, biking, to hiking or just relaxing in the beautiful living room next to the fireplace. The work is mainly housekeeping and definitely provided me with some new helpful skills. Staying in the hostel is comfortable, as it is very clean and there is a big kitchen you can cook in (and where you'll always meet lovely people).I am grateful for this experience and would love to come back!

From the moment I walked in the staff and the manager made me feel right at home. They made sure that I had time to settle in before I started working. The work is good and the hours are as promised. The hostel is really clean, after helping in housekeeping I got a better understanding of the work that it takes to keep an hostel clean and make the guests happy! On my days off there was always someone around that wanted to take a walk or go somewhere, which was really nice. The staff and manager have great knowledge of Tofino and it’s surroundings! I’m definitely gonna miss this place!
