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

I've stayed at this hostel a few times and overall I find it to be just ok. The location is good if you have an early bus or train ride. The all women's dorm was very comfortable and despite the hostel being off of a busy road it was very quiet. I do think that the female bathroom and kitchen... More

Finding a perfect backpacker hostel feels like winning in a lottery. I did when I experienced the C&N in Vancouver. Friendly and Peaceful, and as a senior single traveller, I felt SAFE. I had a big single room, a huge bed and a tv-set. Access to kitchen, computer and balkony (for smokers). In five minutes walk you'll find train-bus-station and... More

Okay... First of all I want to stay, that I really never expect too much from a hostel. I think that as long a minimum level of cleanliness is provided all is fine. However, even after arriving in Vancouver after a 36 hour trip, I was not able to bear the accommodation we were provided in this hotel. I wanted... More

Despite the location close to E Hastings (a few sketchy people may be on the street at night), this was a great hostel. Sure, it was a little old and rundown, but I have stayed here twice now and have never had any issues. Recently we had a private room and the price couldn't be beat. The woman running desk... More

Hector - night manager very gruff, no social skills. Day time manager very good and helpful. I was in a dorm room and had a very strange room mate; never left the room, never said anything and smelled VERY bad. The place over than room mate was pretty clean.

Its one of the cheaper hostels but its in a crap location there is nothing around & only a couple of blocks away from junkies/homeless ppl. You may as well pay more money to stay in city in a nicer place instead of wasting your money on the skytrain! Only 1 shower for a whole floor of about 25ppl u... More
