Good location for shops and transport and felt reasonably safe. Great staff. Only downside is size of dining and lounge areas which only fit a few people. We had to eat sitting on corridor floors and were unable to get a chair in the lounge at anytime in our stay. As the rooms were bunks only there was nowhere to... More

I stayed there one night last May, 2014. It was okay. I had bed by window. Breakfast was good. Lounge and breakfast are on second floor. There are many restaurants nearby. I didn't have problem there.

Stayed in a private ensuite room for a decent price. The location is pretty good, not too far away from Granville station. The hostel itself smelt pretty bad but the room seemed clean-ish! It was fine for one night, wouldn't particularly recommend it, but for $30 a night I can't really complain :)

Stayed here for one night in a private room in transit up to Whistler. It's an older building and has that close, musty smell throughout. However the location is excellent if you want to be close to public transport or in the thick of excitement along Granville. Some excellent cheap eats nearby as well add to the appeal of the...

Unsafe for two reasons: 1) I've stayed in this hostel this April and did not have the best times in a HI hostel as usual. One of the nights there were some guests sitting on the emergency stair smoking and partying. Signs were all over the floor asking not to smoke as well as there was a sign asking not... More

We stayed here for one night after arriving in Vancouver. We arrived at around midday, and asked if our room was ready for checkin. It wasn't but the lady on the desk switched us to another room that had been cleaned. This was amazing because we did have a lot of luggage with us! Our room was clean and the... More

The location is excellent ..if you're into walking, you can walk to most of the attractions. The front desk staff was extremely helpful. The rooms were clean. The kitchen & dining area is a bit small & I found that the common sitting area was overcrowded. The breakfast was good though. Would definitely come back again!

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
