This hostel is actually a house in a neighborhood close to Skytrain, a HUGE shopping center, and a library. The staff was very helpful (and apologetic when we had to wait on towels). You take off your shoes upon entry which we thought was kind of charming in a very homey way, and there are two kitchens-one upstairs and one... More

This is one of my favourite hostels I've ever been to. This was my first time in Canada and the staff made me feel very comfortable by giving an overview of all the attractions in the area and the places I should avoid. They recommended a Greek restaurant called Stefos in the city which was delicious and a great value!... More

Personally I enjoyed my 3 night stop here, after 2 weeks of Downtown city hostels it was a nice change to stay somewhere quiet and relaxed, very homely. However it's definitely not for everyone, the area (burnaby) is a typical suburban sprawl ie. safe and friendly however there is not a lot to do in the area. A 10 minute... More

We had a similar experience to Marie below. This place was much worse inside than advertised and we ended up rebooking elsewhere for our second night. Contrary to what the house manager said, my card was charged (despite assertions to the contrary) and the owner was very unsympathetic to issues with the property and our bad experience. Never stay here!... More
