The room is small, but cheap. The bed was comfortable. The place felt acceptably clean, if worn. I was right next to the shared bathroom though and could hear everything. Every flush, every tp dispense, etc. Would have moved but I had the last room and I got in from a late flight around 1AM and just wanted to sleep.... More

Thought this was a hotel but it was definitely a hostel. The bathrooms and the showers are shared but at least they were clean. The rooms were quite small but had a good view from the window. It is in a fantastic area of Vancouver, making it great for nightlife (especially if you're gay, youre right in the district) &... More

This hotel was a great, low priced option for staying in Vancouver. There are not a ton of extras, and our room did not have a private bathroom (though we had no problem getting a shower when we needed one), but it was well kept, the front desk folks were very nice (even helping us find extra pillows to help...

I was really excited when I found this online and I thought I had made a good choice. I was very wrong. This hotel/hostel is located right across the street from a very loud club. My room was on the second floor but facing the street. It was so loud and I got very little sleep. It didn't finally wind... More

I stayed with my boyfriend only for 1 night when we just arrived to Vancouver. The girl at the reception was very nice and we were happy with the location being in downtown. I think is even bit pricy for what it is but apparently the cheapest of the city. The cleanless was average, and the shower I think they... More

It was a clean and renovated hotel. I would definitely recommend it if you're only staying for one or two nights as you don't have your own bathroom. There is a shared kitchen which could be nice for people on a budget. I didn't have any problems with anyone or anything, overall I can't complain about my stay. There was... More

Hotel was a 10min walk uphill or so from railway. Check in was ok for my one night stay. Room is just that, no bathroom. Had a very strong disinfectant smell, which I soon became accustomed to. I guess the bathroom is a very long way down the hallway from my room. Coffee is provided in kitchen area down the... More

The lady receptionist working tonight, August 18, 2014 @ 2100 is very rude. She must not have realized that we are paying guests at this hotel. The one bathroom to 20 units set-up I don't care, but I will never let any rudeness slip by. My friends and I just got back from touring around vancouver and when we were... More
