I stayed here from October 2013 to April 2014. I arrived on a working holiday looking for somewhere to stay, if this is something you might be doing then I recommend this hotel. The location is excellent, and you'll be living with other solo travelers so making friends will be easy. The staff were very helpful to me, after leaving... More

This is my second time staying at the Columbia Hotel monthly while on a working holiday from Australia. This hotel is perfect for those who need a great decent room (bed, work desk, chair, wardrobe, sink, side table, lamps, heater and TV) on a budget. (Think working holiday, international students etc...) Prices range from $570 - $650 for a private... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 months last year. I was well impressed with the level of room and bathroom cleanliness, common areas are sometimes good sometimes not but a lot of that depends on other guests. The management and staff can be a little rude, especially the owner but if you ca get by their quirks its a... More

Every time I come back from Europe I always go to this place. I've stayed two times in this hotel. The first time for 6 months and the second time for 1 month. It has been good for me, very affordable regarding the proximity to downtown, clean, safe and cosy. I recommend this hotel to anyone for a short or... More

I stayed here for 6 months. The first 3 months were OK, but unfortunately, within the last three months, this Columbia Student Residence has had a plague of cockroaches in its kitchens, crawling all over the shared dishes, and most of the rooms are infested with bed bugs. This "hotel" continues to have bedbugs and cockroaches, that you can visibly... More

We stayed here from November 2012 - April 2013 and it was the perfect place to live for 6 months. We paid $1000 a month for a nice big room, double bed and a bathroom but apparently we got a pretty good price because it was during the winter - apparently it goes up during the summer and I'm not...

This hotel is too expensive considering the fact that there is a bar downstairs where they play extremely loud music. You would not get any sleep! This is how I experienced this hotel, and the owners didn’t want to do anything about it. I would never recommend Columbia Hotel as long as the bar is downstairs.

The facilities here are pretty great - linen, clean rooms, kitchens, room service every week or so, secure premises, free WiFi, laundry facilities. The price for us was perfect - we wanted 'somewhere to live' in Downtown Vancouver for a couple of months. Everywhere else was either out of our price range or located way out of town. Our one-bedroom... More

Pretty run down facilities with crude remodeling, except for pub. Elevator is iffy. No linen service. Location is in high density homeless population area, but just a few blocks from the gastown area. No air conditioning, which can be uncomfortable and very loud in the summer. Friendly staff.
