The hostel was generally very good, the staff were very helpful and the rooms generally very good. We stayed a couple of times during our time in Canada, one of the rooms we had was right next to the kitchen which was a little noisy but other than that it was all good. Pleanty of the free breakfast and good... More

I stayed here for 5 nights and had a good overall experience; the staff are friendly, lockers and towels are provided, as is breakfast (toast and bagels, coffee and juice), and there are lots of trips on offer- I went on Erilk's Capilano daytrip which I would highly recommend- he was brilliant! The free wifi wasn't great and frequently disconnected-... More

Arriving just before midday, our rooms weren't ready, but we could already check in and put our luggage in a storage room. After a short trips to the city, we could finally go to our room. We were four people with one room with two bunk-beds to ourselves. It was rather small with all our luggage taking up a lot... More

Hello! Definitely recommend this place! I stayed at the hostel for 9 days and was extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the facilities and by the hosts kindness and knowledge. I imagine the four bed dorm rooms could be quite cramp during busy season. Fortunately it was pretty quiet during my stay so I was able to have my own... More

This is my second place to stay in Vancouver. Hostel was rather occupied by guests all over the world, Desk can handle rather large scale of languages which was nice to hear. Guests have very good facilities to enjoy, kitchen, dining area tv- and game room are well equipped and situated. Closeness to city activities is good and public transit... More

Spent 2 nights in a 4 person room. As said previously, it was tiny. Everyone had to keep their bags packed up so that there was enough floor space to get to the bed. Wifi worked well in my room, which was on the third floor. The kitchen was massive and really well equipped. It was basically a commercial kitchen.... More

Great stay! Rooms and bathroom excellent. Lots of information on what to do in Vancouver on notice board. The best free breakfast ever! Reception helpful and always friendly, even when they are tired! Ten minutes walk to beach and shopping area! Twenty minutes walk to Stanley park! Love it.......love it!

I liked this hostel because they are relaxed with drinking and kitchen is open 24/7. They can clean the room a bit room. But do a very good job cleaning the kitchen every morning at the same time. Location is good and they have a nice mix of different staff from all overall the world.

First time in a HI hostel, stayed a couple nights and it was just what I needed and expected. The location couldn't be any better, great restaurants and bars close by, walking distance to Stanley Park and other cool attractions. Room with 4 beds was pretty small and awkward climbing ladder to top bunk. Couldn't get good wifi from 3rd... More
