I loved this place from the moment we arrived. It's just a few minutes walk to the beach and a short bus ride to the city centre.....but who needs the bus when you can rent a bike from the hostel!! Vancouver is the best city to cycle in. They have really god designated cycle ways (speaking as someone who is... More

This hostel is located about half an hour (by bus) from downtown and is about 15 minutes (by bus) away from the campus of the University of British Columbia. If you want to be near the city, as there isn't much to do nearby the hostel, I suggest that you stay somewhere else. However, this hostel is not in a... More

So I like to have fun late into the night and even through the break of dawn when the feeling is right, but when I hunker down, I really crave for quiet time. Jericho Beach was utter perfection for me. I had access to all of Vancouver, yet had a quiet, beautiful, & serene location to go to when it... More

I stayed here in July. Having mucked up my dates with some other accommodation and needing a place to stay at the last minute, I found a vacancy here. It's a wonderful location for a hostel and the building itself is clean and pleasant. Five minutes max walk to the beach, six minutes to a beachview bar, beautiful sunsets. I... More

The location is okay if you're after a slow pace. Not much options for food/service wise unless you're willing to walk 15 minutes. The beach was a let down, coming from Australia though, my standards are quite high. Room/dorms and bathroom facilities are all great. Biggest let down is the miscommuniaction between staff and service at reception. On any most... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in early June in a private room with a shared bathroom. The hostel was a great choice. Within Vancouver but in a quiet area with easy access to downtown Vancouver. The room was small but comfortable. Hostel was very clean. Staff were helpful with answering questions and giving advice. Unfortunately parking is in the... More

I brought my girl guide unit to this hostel and loved it!! The girls and guiders loved the location and the staff at the hostel. Very friendly and pleased that they had a dormitory room that all the girls stayed in :)

I found this place to be extremely quiet and the beds were very comfy. Only thing is the design of the place, its kinda a bit prison like or mental institution. The washrooms and showers could do with a bit of a revamp. They are clean, just old style. They need to get vending machines that sell food. The closest... More

We stayed in the co-ed dorm for the first couple of nights as the private rooms were fully booked. Then we moved into a private room for our last night which topped off a good stay here. The only downside to the dorm was there was no power points accessible for bed 1&2 as the outlets are behind a bench... More

We bought a private room here.... The hostel is clean and has plenty of space along with all the usual facilities. (Large kitchen) A room fan would have been nice. They run a cafe for breakfast, lunch and dinner, although it did close quite early. A short walk to the beach (Sailing club with good eatery) and the park, which... More
