The WhiteHouse Backpacker Lodge is a graciously restored Victorian residence that has been offering boutique style hostel accommodation since 2006. Located in a leafy downtown setting, just one block from historic Baker Street, The WhiteHouse is convenient to shops, cafes and night life. Facilities include spacious lounge, fireplace, large kitchen, verandah, BBQ, views & more. Charming private rooms and spacious dorms are enjoyed by travellers of all ages from across Canada and around the world. Rescued from the threat of demolition, and extensively renovated with flair and imagination by the current owners, this elegant Victorian home, circa 1906, has been re-created into a truly great hostel with the ambience of a guest house. Unlike institutional-style hostels or chain hotels, The WhiteHouse is intimate, relaxed and welcoming, offering distinctive, quietly elegant private rooms and spacious, comfortable dorm share rooms. The hostel can accommodate up to 28 guests. There is also a private staff suite in the basement.
The WhiteHouse’s common areas are cosy and inviting. The lounge, with its walls adorned with paintings by local artists, its polished wood floors and its glowing ceramic fireplace provides a sense of home – guests remark on this time and again.
