    My interactions with the owner beforehand were great, but unfortunately as another reviewer mentioned this place closed pretty unexpectedly. Luckily I did not prepay so I didn't run into any issues with refunds, but it was certainly an unpleasant surprise 2 weeks before the trip.

    Great location. Very helpful host who told us how to navigate the area on a budget. Visiting with the younger adventure seekers at breakfast was priceless. Close to everything. Gladly come here again.

    I stayed at the Urban Hideaway while taking a course at the very nearby B.C.I.T. Arriving from the airport, it's a short walk from the station in Gastown and everything else downtown Vancouver has to offer. The breakfast offers a beautiful bounty of cereals, muffins,...More

    A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
    stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
    being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
    plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
    the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
    history a more lively presence here than anywhere
