Hello! Definitely recommend this place! I stayed at the hostel for 9 days and was extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the facilities and by the hosts kindness and knowledge.
I imagine the four bed dorm rooms could be quite cramp during busy season. Fortunately it was pretty quiet during my stay so I was able to have my own room for a couple nights. I kept most of my baggage in the luggage room (if there were more than two of us, there would be no way any of us would be getting in or out of the room!). There are lockers in the rooms and if you're flexible the size isn't that big of an issue if you have the right attitude. Only downside of the hostel was wifi. It was TERRIBLE (I regularly opted for coffee shops). It didn't reach most of the floors so you have to stay in communal areas and even then it disconnects often and/or is really slow when other people are using it. It's not bad if you opt for non-busy times of the day to use the internet, there was one night where the wifi worked in my room (4th floor) and a happy dance may have happened!
Location was great, no concerns wandering around at night at all. It's located on a side street so it was relatively quiet at night but also pretty close to bars and what not. There's also lots of great restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance and you're not too far from English Bay and Stanely Park!
