I stayed there 11.23.14 - 11.27.14. They send you an email confirmation, and at the bottom of the email are directions from how to get to the hostel from the airport. The directions are as clear as day, and I got there with no issues. Upon arrival, the front desk offered me their membership, and I would be able to... More

I stayed at the HI Downtown about one week. I booked a bed in a 4-bed female dorm. The room was really tiny and with all the suitcases the room was really packed and kind of uncomfortable. Breakfast was included and had a lot of choices and definitely above hostel average. The location was awesome in the beautiful Westened!! Best... More

We chose to stay in a double at the HI Downtown Hostel for the value. It's a good choice as long as you know what you are going to get. It is clean, central, efficient, etc. It does not have much charm, but that comes with the territory. Although most people were young, we saw all ages there. The biggest... More

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
