Proof of Vaccination

To ensure the safety of our travellers and staff, we require proof of COVID-19 vaccination at many hostels in British Columbia and Nova Scotia. You'll find details relevant to each province below. Upon arrival, you'll be asked to show the required documentation at check-in. We are unable to accommodate travellers who fail to provide adequate documentation. For more information about additional safety protocols at our hostels, find out how we're keeping you safe.
