I flew into Vancouver from Toronto, with a reservation. When I went to check in I was informed they had given my room away. I had cancelled an earlier resovation, but rebooked. The girl at the counter gave me 2 print outs of the same cancelation email and tried to convince me they were for each of my reservations, despite... More

I strongly recommend anyone who is Even considering to Stay in this 'Hostel' to pay a Little bit more and Book one far away from that place! My friend And I stayed there for three nights until we changed to another hostel. It seemed like we were the only females in the whole building. Apart from that the kitchen didn't... More

Me and a friend of mine stayed about 1 month in this cheap but great hostel. Joe offered us a discount for one month to pay only 440 CAD each. Thats a perfect rent, if you think about this place which is only 10 mins walk close by Downtown. Some people stay here for more than one month as well,... More

If your skin reacts to bug bites then I do not recommend staying at this hostel. There are bugs (and mice for that matter) everywhere- which the staff lie about to the customers- and the bits leave marks that scar and the scar last for months all over your legs. I had less bug bites covering my legs sleeping in... More

Alaska is expensive, and I have enjoyed the hospitality of hostels to cut costs. Not bad at all. Part of my last trip involved a stay in Vancouver, one of the most expensive cities in North America. Hotels are about $300/nite, so I opted for the C & N Backpackers. It's certainly not the Ritz, but has all the necessary... More

My friend I stayed in c&n hostel because we had to wake up very early to a pickup point in Chinatown. We stayed in a private room which was a room with a queen size bed, tv, sink. The room looked ok and the bed was made quite neat; however, the whole floor smelled so bad that I almost threw... More

There are absolutely no redeeming features about this hostel, aside from if you are lucky you might meet similarly disgruntled travellers and have a good laugh at what an appalling hostel this is. The rooms are dingy, small and uncomfortable, cleanliness is not high on the agenda here with insufficient showers/bathrooms for the amount of guests. Worse than the ridiculously... More

We booked this hostel for the location, as we were arriving very late and didn't want to travel too far in the dark. So the location for us was ideal! The man on the front desk was very friendly and chatty which made us feel more at ease. When we got into our room though it was quite dirty and... More

Even if you're used to hostels - this one will come as a shocker! Cleanliness seems not to be a priority within these premises - it's horrendously dirty (our room was complete with two pet cockroaches). The bedding was not clean, although made to look as if it had been cleaned. The bedding has suspicious stains on it and should... More

Just arrived and wish I could leave as fast. Guy who checked me in so a grump. Heart attack waiting to happen. Looks miserable and so is the vibe around here. Kitchens close 21:30 and he tells you to go to your room or downstairs the cramped tv room. There is no atmosphere here at all. If you can spend... More
