This is a great hostel to stay in. Perfect location on a lively street. Great helpful friendly staff who take time to explain directions and even organize activities. I recommend this hostel to everyone and I would stay again when visiting Vancouver. Everybody made my visit to Vancouver enjoyable and worth it!

I hadn't ever been to a backpacker's hostel but this place was really good. The staff were friendly and all the stuff actually worked (wifi, heating, pool table etc) and the showers and bathrooms were pretty clean and there was plenty of them. The place also had a really social vibe about it and offered activities where you could meet... More

This place is party central, located downtown Vancouver there is something always happening. Hostel staff are very friendly and happy to help. Hostel also organises activities and has season passes for the Hockey so I was able to go to a Canucks game - tick that off the bucket list. I was travelling alone (20 YO Male) and found it... More

I had the best time, everyone was great just a nice little community. The hostel is walking distance to pretty much everything or just a short bus trip away. I would recommended everyone to stay at the hostel and the beaver bar downstairs is awesome

Walls are paper thin.especially at the stairs HOWEVER I was impressed with the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the bar is fun. Not too expensive. I'd stay here again and would recommend for someone on a budget! BRING EARPLUGS

My expectations of hostels are pretty low. This place was really clean, linen was clean and didnt smell at all, bathrooms were upkept, clean and well stocked. Street facing rooms are quite loud at night but its located within easy walking disrance and transportation in downtown vancouver. Also has and awesome bar built in with good, cheap dinners.

Great hostel for young (or for any age) and cash strapped travellers. The free breakfast and wifi is a great treat making the value that much better. Go to the attached Beaver restaurant anynight for a cheap meal, well priced drinks and great social atmosphere.

Excellent hostel in a good location, right in Downtown. Staff are very helpful and a breakfast of bagels, juice is included. They organise daily trips to sights around Vancouver. All clean, if a little scruffy but overall good value for money and very friendly!
