Welcome to Penticton
Translated to it's Salish Indian meaning means "A place to stay forever." Forever is a long time, but definitely a place like Penticton makes one think that they could stay forever. Cradled within tree-lined mountain slopes, dramatic cliffs (the world famous Skaha Bluffs), and bordered by two pristine lakes, Penticton offers natural beauty all year round. The semi-arid desert climate provides more than 2000 hours of sunshine each year to complement the myriad of cultural activities, international events, regional festivals, and good old-fashioned relaxation.
Hostelling International Penticton
The hostel is located in the heart of downtown. The hostel is just one block from a variety of unique restaurants, pubs, night clubs, and shops. The sandy shores of Okanagan Lake are a quick 3 block hop from the hostel.
Guests can expect a relaxed, home-away-from-home feel when staying at the HI-Penticton hostel, a renovated 1908 heritage home. Our friendly staff know how to add those special touches that make many initial one-nighters want to extend their stay in the beautiful land of peaches and beaches.
