Yeah this place to be fair could do with new sheets and a bit of redecoration done on the place. But other than that it is perfect. Location is excellent and the breakfast ah God the breakfast.. after a lot of traveling this has been the best breakfast with all you can eat muffins, cereal, toast, bagels and fruit. Was... More

I stayed here in the first week of Nov. 2014. This place was pretty dead when i was here and the people in it really kept to themselves but i still managed to meet a handful of people to go out with and drink with in the kitchen. The ladies at the desk were all very nice and more than... More

Stayed here in a 4 bed female dorm when I first arrived in Vancouver. The room was very clean and bed comfy with nice linen. Lots of bathrooms on the floor so I never had to wait for a shower etc. Breakfast was good for free and a good place to chat to people. They run some good events so... More

Stayed in a single room with bathroom. Good location, felt safe as a couple. Clean room and bathroom with all linen and towels provided, good free breakfast, very quiet on the third floor, great activities including a really fun and cheap night at the hockey, nice staff. Wifi not great.

This hostel is clean and has a nice vibe but the kitchen is inadequate with only a microwave, the wifi is not great and during breakfast it's very crowded with no where to sit. The whole place needs a refurb. Having said that our room which slept 3 was fine, showers good and location is great. The hostel kept our... More

This is a great hostel and the prices are reasonable. We had a room with private bathroom, which was very nice. We made many international friends at the hostel and went on an arranged pub crawl and a guided tour to Granville Island (a peninsula and shopping district in Vancouver). Overall a great experience.

Stayed here for a week before finding a place to reside in Vancouver. I was previously staying at the Samesun across the road and although it was friendly, I wanted somewhere quiet as i had started working. I have to say I did get a decent amount of sleep and the dorm rooms were quite spacious. I did find that... More
