From May 15-August 15, Pacific Spirit Hostel is the perfect location for backpackers visiting Vancouver. Rooms are quiet and clean and, unlike other hostels, you only have one or two people to one of our private single or twin rooms. The hostel is on the beautiful UBC campus, with easy access to campus amenities, affordable food, pubs and entertainment and Vancouver's many attractions. It's a safe, secure environment surrounded by hiking and biking trails and Vancouver's most popular beaches.

University Land Endowments
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.

All I needed was a clean place to sleep and wash, on the UBC campus. Pacific Spirit Hostel provided this admirably. Only problem was that wi-fi did not extend to rooms without renting an extender, which I did not do. So I had to do my work in their common area.

Comfortable for the price paid. Excellent front desk staff! Beautiful location. Bed not that comfortable. :( Wi-fi worked with no issues. Vending machines or some sort of late night access to food or drinks on location would be good.

At first I thought the hostel was a bit far from downtown Vancouver, but when I realized how close it was to a fantastic beach and beautiful trails and a park, I was sold. It's literally a 5 minute walk to the beach, although there are nearly 500 steps. The room was fine,

We appreciate your feedback and thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are literally steps away from the beautiful Wreck Beach. We are sorry for the bathrooms and can assure you that they are cleaned daily. That being said, we will be looking at ways to further improve our facilities and guest experience.

Thank you for your questions. As per Timo M's detailed response, it depends on which port you are referring to. If you are referring to the cruise ship terminal port downtown, then it is about a 20 minute drive or 30 minutes bus ride downtown (pending traffic).

Thank you for your question. It usually takes about 30 minutes or so to get from downtown to UBC. Obviously rush hour would be longer. That being said, there is a major bus exchange on campus with lots of buses going to all parts of Vancouver, including express buses that go downtown.

No worries. Accidents happen! We are unable to delete the reviews ourselves but have contacted Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor has reached out to you for clarification. Once you clarify with them then they will be able to delete the review. Thanks!

"Best place ever stayed"
"Rooms facing west can get VERY hot and stuffy."
"ask to stay on a floor with your sex of washroom, so you don't have to go to a different floor to go to the washroom."
"The single room on the 4th floor was everything I could ask for when arriving late at night."
"Single rooms are very reasonably priced."
