We stayed here for 3 nights, and booked a dorm room. Check-in was good; the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The location of the hostel is key - you are near to streets with grocery stores, liquor stores, convenience stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and shops. We bought tickets to the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus through the hostel. It was a great decision;... More

This place is alright. The best thing about it is the location and on site parking provided you book a car park space in advance (there is a fee). There are lots of eating places within walking distance. We booked through Booking.com and didn't realise that in the small print it says you have to pay an extra amount if... More

I stayed in this hostel during June 2015. The staff was very cooperative, ande the atmosphere in the hostel was very good. Nice clean beds,bathrooms & rooms. Breakfast provided was up to the international standards. Wifi was easily available in my room with good speed. I would definitely recommend this hostel to any one travelling to Vancouver.

I stayed over in a dorm room for a treat in the city. Only $39.00, with breakfast included during the peak season. I used to commute to vancouver to work and i forgot how much I enjoyed HI so I openend another membership. Paul stays in the male 4 bed dorm when he commutes to work and it is much... More

This Hostel was very friendly and welcoming. It was in a great location on a quiet street. It was really close to downtown which meant there were plenty of opportunities for nights out and day trips. The bathrooms were clean (as good as you'd expect for a hostel) and as long as you went early/ late enough you never got... More

I've stayed at this hostel a few time and found it welcoming and safe in a quiet location on the corner of Burnaby St, just one block from the colourful and vibrant Davie St with many restaurants and shops. Breakfast is included in the price although only served between 8-915 am which means you'll of course be sharing your table,... More

This is a great hostel. I love the location on a quiet street rather than the dodginess that is Granville Street and its dregs of society inhabitants. The hostel even has a games room, library and rooftop deck! But of course my search for the perfect hostel continues as small details need to be fixed here. The internet requires you... More

Very close to downtown proper but not on a main street as to be bustling with activity all the time. The staff is friendly, the place is what you would expect from a hostel in which people stay for a few days. Bathrooms are clean (although not exactly pristine). There's even a small library à la take-one-give-one, which I really... More

I only stayed overnight in the off season but I felt desk staff was indifferent. I had to play 20 questions to get basic info. I purchased the Big Bus add on, had to ask where the nearest stop was, direction was poor, turns out it was right on the corner (I found out after walking blocks) wasn't given the... More

Great hostel and even better location- close to the beach and downtown without having that big noise from the city. The room and the bathroom were clean and compfi. Just the noise from other rooms can be heard pretty easily. Great choice of breakfast and huge and clean kitchen. We will be back in May.
