The Riding Fool Hostel remains committed to providing quality accommodation to the independent traveller in a fun, safe and social environment. This has always been our mission statement and it rings true today more than ever. To achieve this in today’s world, we are staying current and adhering to guidelines published by the Provincial Government and BC Centre for Disease Control.

Guest Experience

Signage is posted at the front door letting guests know that masks are mandatory in all indoor settings for everyone born in 2009 or earlier as per the August 25th 2021 Public Health Order. This applies to our common areas except when seated for dining.

Hand sanitizing stations are strategically located throughout the building in all common areas. Please take advantage of these as well as handwash opportunities in the kitchen and bathrooms.

Labelled spray bottles containing the disinfectant Oxygenic have been placed in shared areas so guests can re-sanitize hard surfaces should they desire.

The kitchen has a sanitation sink to sanitize dishes after they have been washed and rinsed.

No unregistered guests are permitted at this time.


We use a product called Oxygenic which is a fully biodegradable peroxide-based cleaner with a Drug Identification Number (DIN#) and viricidal claim of 99.9% efficacy. All hard surfaces and high touch points in rooms are cleaned and sanitized prior to check in. This same product is also used on floors. High touch point areas throughout the building have been identified and are cleaned multiple times daily with this product.

In this Together

We are proud of how our staff and guests have responded to the challenges presented by COVID-19.

Thank you for helping keep our staff, guests and community safe and healthy.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us.
