This place has everything you need! To start with it is on a fantastic location for those wanting to check out Vancouver, it's quiet but still close to everything! The rooms are clean and the private room we stayed in even had a toilet and sink which was brilliant for the price we paid! You get free breakfast which is... More

Very rude staff doing the checking in and out. Despite dealing with international travelers who may not know the system and working in hospitality, the front desk staff were not patient and were short and sometimes almost demeaning with their responses to questions. They were also not helpful with helping to direct us around Vancouver or to give recommendations. The... More

Very comfortable 5 night stay. Breakfast had a wide variety of choices and very fresh and yummy. Washroom facilities were very clean and showers were always hot. Room was clean, but stuffy. Bed was comfortable. I found noise level to be reasonable and I slept very well each night. I enjoyed the option for a BBQ on Saturday. Staff was... More

This place suited my needs for accommodation. Cheap but quality standard. Location is quite good, in the West End of Vancouver. Short walk to the centre of town including Granville Street. Nice staff, comfortable rooms. More than happy staying here again.

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 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
