More about Tofino Trek Inn
Forget me not!
Amidst years of traveling, countless hostels and hotel rooms,Tofino Trek Inn will forever stand out in my memory as one of the "forget me not" places that I have stayed.
The welcoming atmosphere and friendly hospitality services provided by Trek Inn owner, Joe, made our stay in Tofino exactly what we were looking for - peaceful, quiet and reflective.
And if you're lucky, Joe might even make up a batch of his famous tandoori chicken! :)
I stayed here last week with a couple of friends. We were in Tofino for a few days of surfing and had a great time at the Trek Inn!
The Trek Inn is clean, quiet and the perfect place to relax and get away from every day life. The cozy living room has a real homey feel and the bathroom has a big soaker tub and is super clean. There's also a big well-equipped kitchen for everyone to use. If you're bringing your own surf gear, there's a water hose that you can use to rinse all your stuff after a day on the beach and there's also a small shed to store your boards and hang your wetsuits!
The location is perfect and the views from the living room and the deck are amazing. If you're lucky you might spot whales and eagles while cooking up your steak on the BBQ. Champagne views on a beer budget!
Joe is a fantastic host! He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and pleasant and he knows all about the area and can give you great recommendations on where to go and what to do. He can even help you with looking for a job, if you're coming out to work! The free breakfast that he provided every day was awesome! There was fresh bread (it was so fresh that is was still warm, straight out of the oven from the bakery down the street!) every morning with fresh fruit and tea/coffee, which was a great start of the day.
I would definitely recommend this hostel/B&B to everyone! It's the perfect place for small families, couples and single travelers!
"friendly fella with a friendly home"
stopping in at the Trek Inn was just what i needed. Joe offers a nice place to relax and take tofino at your own pace. Waking up in the morning to fresh baked bread and fresh fruit, accoompanied with a friendly chat with Joe was a breath of fresh air aways from the hostel life. Not only does he offer a personalised service, Joe is always at hand to offer advice on places to see and things to do. He's a really nice bloke with a really nice place.

Champagne View on a Beer Budget
This is a fantastic place to stay for job seekers or backpackers. I went to Tofino to find a job and was pleasantly surprised when I got to the Treck Inn. Great staff, nice breakfast, you meet awesome people...The best part was enjoying a glass of wine on the patio, relaxing on the lounger, watching the sun go down, and gabbing to the other girls staying at the Inn. I would recommend this place to anyone. If you are looking for a job they will help you do that, if you are looking for the main Tofino attractions they will point you in the right direction.
Great, inexpensive B and B in tofino
I recently stayed at the Tofino Trek in for the second time and enjoyed my visit as much as the one I had there last year. Joe, the host, is friendly and helpful, and provides a great breakfast in the kitchen, with freshly baked bread. He knows the area and local businesses well, and gives great advice on where to go and what to do, and guests receive a discount when booking with tour operators.
Prime experience for Tofino!
My sister and I recently stayed with Joe at the Trek Inn... have never enjoyed a B&B/ Hostel experience so much! Incredible views, great location, and amazing bread and breakfast time... The beds were incredibly comfy, Joe was so helpful on EVERYTHING, and the toilet paper must have been 4 ply.. it was really the nicest stuff Ive ever touched..
Great experience, clean, affordable, friendly, and great atmosphere!! I will be back soon! Thank you Joe... =)
This is an excellent place to stay. Comfortable and cheap, had an excellent breakfast. The owner is very helpful and has good connection in the town. He can arrange stuffs for cheap. We got a very cheap deal in bear and whale watching. Stay tuned, watch our bear video in youtube (still take few days to upload :)).
A GREAT value given the pricey location!
As a solo traveler (in his 40s) I highly recommend Tofino Trek Inn because--
1) You can't beat $37 CAD--breakfast included--to stay next to the Ocean in Tofino! Hotels in the area I checked were typically $85 and up per night.
2) Unlike local youth hostels which cater primarily to 20-somethings (party down, dude!!!), I encountered travelers of all ages (young and older) in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It was great meeting and chatting with the other guests in the lounge.
3) Joe (the manager) is extremely helpful and responsive to guest needs and inquiries. I don't normally do reviews of hotels, but this place is an unusually great value with a great manager.
I was lucky to stumble upon this budget B&B, and highly recommend it.
Friendly, helpful and relaxed
Clean and welcoming environment. Great kitchen with a beautiful view. Joe, the host, was very helpful and knowledgeable.
