Great location in downtown within easy reach of cafes, restaurants and shops - you can walk to anywhere in the centre from here. A short walk to the waterfront at sunset beach where you can also take the ferry over to Granville Island. My room was clean with 2 bunks on the top floor. There was just enough room for... More

The hostel was a minute away from Davie where there's tons of coffee shops and restaurants! It's also very close to downtown and less than a 5 minute walk away from sunset beach! I loved the location! The breakfast was really good, even if it would have been nice if breakfast was a little longer (was only an hour and... More

The location of this hostel is great, very close to everything. The staff were helpful with local attractions and would always explain how to get there. The rooms are a bit small, cannot fit four people's belongings in them. Free breakfast was a bonus. Little bit dirty and out dated, although the bathrooms were clean every time I visited.

The Pros: fairly clean, great location (4 minute walk to the beach and ferry to Granville Island, 30 minute walk anywhere downtown), free breakfast, big kitchen, fairly quiet, reasonably priced and comfortable beds (for a bunk). The Cons: my room had a weird funk that never seemed to go away (was not me - I checked), Wi-Fi was pretty spotty... More

The best thing about this place is definitely the location. It's in a slightly more residential area of town, so it's a bit quieter than HI central, but still walking distance from everything. It's a particularly lovely part of town and a nice stroll down the hill brings you to sunset beach and then on up to Stanley Park. The... More

I stayed in a private room with my fiance. Room and bathrooms are clean. She had no complaints about cleaning. The environment is just perfect! Staff is great and willing to answer any question about the city! Give hints, discounts. You feel like you can count on them, always. Location is good, very close to Davie street, where many restaurants... More

Pros: Location is quite nice. It's central, but not busy. The breakfast is very good. Showers and toilets are some of the best I've seen in a hostel. Cons: Shame about the room though. The room I was in was stuffy, stale, and smelled like sweat. The room had a pretty large window, but only the smallest part actually opened;... More

Breakfast was very good. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms too. Staff was very friendly and there were good activities in the hostel. Especially the Capilano suspension bridge tour on Fridays with Erik! The hostel is very close to the sunset beach which is very beautiful and about 10 to 15 minutes from downtown.

I stayed here when the downtown HI hostel and Samesun were sold out and it was actually perfect for a quiet night before heading out early the next day. Close to numerous restaurants and bars etc. (and safeways). Granville st with most bars and clubs only 5-10mins walk. Clean and quiet rooms, nice bathrooms and good wifi in common areas... More
