Powell River Guesthouse Fat Salmon Hostel, Port Alberni BC Globetrotter Hostel Monteal Misty River Lodge, Radium Hot Springs BC

Port Alberni's Fat Salmon Backpacker's Hostel

The Fat Salmon is a seasonal backpacker's mecca, offering 38 beds in dormitory-styled rooms. There are four bathrooms, two lounges, a kitchen, a BBQ outside and both front and back decks. There is laundry and workshop downstairs, as well as a drying room for wet hiking, cycling and kayaking gear. The back of the hostel sits two streets up from the beautiful Harbour Quay in rugged Port Alberni.

The 90 year-old building, sitting on two city lots, comprises two floors ≠ the main street-level is the hostel, and the lower floor houses the manager's suite (complete one-bedroom apartment), as well as a second one-bedroom apartment, currently used as a rental unit (but perfect for expansion of the upstairs hostel, too). There is an unfinished attic that could easily be renovated to expand the hostel or to finish as another rental unit. All plumbing, electrical and alarm systems were updated in 2005 to meet code.

The Fat Salmon has worked hard within the community to establish a reputable and solid name for itself and hostelling, in general. It has succeeded. The Fat Salmon works closely with local kayaking outfitter, Batstar Adventure Tours, local tubing outfitter, Stamp River Tubing, as well as Rendezvous Dive Adventures in the Barkley Sound.

The Fat Salmon is a member of Backpackers Hostels Canada (national hostelling association), Pacific Hostels Network (international hostelling association), our local Chamber of Commerce and Women's Business Network, as well as the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.

The hostel was written up in the 2007 Lonely Planet BC guidebook and in the 2008 Lonely Planet Canada guidebook.

The Fat Salmon has also been written up in both local newspapers (the Alberni Valley Times and the Alberni Valley News), the Vancouver Island-wide business newspaper, Business Examiner, as well as appeared on the local television channel, Shaw. In early 2008, the hostel appeared on the front page of the Travel section in the Edmonton Journal in Alberta and the Victoria Times Colonist in British Columbia. The Fat Salmon has also appeared in the international diving magazines Duiken (Belgium and Holland), Taudren (Austria) and SPITS (Germany).
