Although the room was quite basic and the shared showers and restrooms were clean, the room was very old. The desk and bed were probably more than 30 years old, and there was no air conditioning. No wifi at the room. In contrast, the hotel service is very friendly and the lobby is quite comfortable. The gage apartments are located... More

Given the moderate temperatures of Vancouver you usually do not need air conditioning. But my room was directly in the sun and was a stifling 90 degrees F when I walked in. Even after jamming the door open the room would not cool down. There was simply no way to pull cool air into the room. Made for a rather... More

Great location on campus. Parking close by and the student union building across the street are handy. Don't expect much in the way of service when compared to a hotel. Here you move your own luggage to your room and hope to get replenished bathroom toiletries on a daily basis. But it's clean and if you need to be on... More

While the bed was comfortable, the fan in the room didn't work, nor was there Internet access (despite it being indicated in the guest service binder), and the ability to dial the front desk wasn't working. As a business traveller, it had more limitations than benefits and as the price is the same as the downtown hotels - I'll stay... More

We stayed here for a week in July 2014 during a conference at UBC. So location was great. Unfortunately there was a heatwave in Vancouver, and the ceeling fan wasn't much help. Better AC would really improve the situation. Otherwise, close to the bus terminal, so reaching other parts of Vancouver was very easy. It isn't a top hotel, so... More

Printer always broken and there is no note to say it-you lose your money. Laundry machines are not working properly either. Don't expect any service. When I first came in my flat, it wasn't even clean! I'm so sick of this residence. Can't wait for the end of the term…

Great way to stay in Vancouver without breaking the bank. Not only are you not breaking the bank but you're paying very little money for lodging in a fairly expensive city. Caveat is that it's a dorm, so even if you get a single room (and I recommend you do), it's small and spartan with a communal bathroom. But there's... More

My review is for the Gage apartments. For a price that is low by Vancouver standards, I got a fully equipped room with kitchenette and bathroom: quiet, clean, with a free breakfast included in the price: a great deal. Since I needed to see someone at the university, this was perfect for me. On the downside: there is no air... More

My employer booked this accommodation and paid for it, so I can't comment on the price. But I was absolutely blown away by these modern, clean, and spacious apartments (my review is of the Gage Apartments, not Towers). These rooms are a far cry from the dingy, dirty, and outdated dorms I lived in as a college student. My only... More
