My boyfriend and I only spent 1 night at C&N but we were not impressed. Obviously we weren't expecting luxury for the price and to be honest we just wanted somewhere to sleep before our Greyhound in the morning, but I have paid less for a lot more. The hostel is strangely signposted as a different hostel which confused us,... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night since it was conveniently located for traveling to Vancouver Island the next day. While the staff is friendly and helpful, the hotel itself is in a horrible state. The rooms smelled awful and did not have bathrooms. Overall cleanliness was horrible. So if you think it'll do for one night because of... More

If your only staying in Vancouver for a night waiting for a bus or a train then this is a great location. Right across the street from the station. The staff were very friendly but the rooms need a make over, beds were very uncomfortable, and some of the characters that came in and out of the place didn't seem... More

The staff was super friendly and helpful at this hostel, and it was in a decent part of town and close to a couple of restaurants and RIGHT next to Pacific Central station, but when we checked into our room, the beds were unmade. The room also had a weird smell, and I think I got bed bugs. What got... More

Now, I really hate to write this review as the front desk staff just very helpful but...watch out for those buts...this is not the place for young kids, and anyone concerned about your surroundings. Several times walked past guys near the pub smoking weed. If you are on a limited budget, can manage with less than ideal situations, give it... More

Private room (i.e. the most expensive version): no cleaning was done; previous person's sweat on the pillow cases; the torn comforter was "fixed" with tape; super-hot room; killed at least 4 or 5 cockroaches; some bugs must have been in the mattress, since I woke up with huge red patches all over my hands and legs - they itched for...

Me and a friend stayed at the C & N backpackers for 2 nights. It didn't start too well.. After trying to cancel a night the guy on the phone was totally unprofessional. I was very close to canceling both nights but there wasn't any other options available. We were welcomed and told to take our shoes off outside, I... More
