I booked a four bed dorm but got a 6 bed dorm and was charged an extra $10 (not including the $10 deposit for the keys) on top of what I thought I had to pay when i booked. The shower was a absolutely shocking!! It practically just dripped and took forever to heat up! There was also no room... More

I don't understand why this hostel has so many bad reviews. I was at the hostel for 3 nights. I was in a dorm on the 5th floor. The room was very big, had a fridge and a TV. It was really quiet at night too. The kitchen was OK and didn't have many pots or pans. The bathrooms were... More

My boyfriend and I only spent 1 night at C&N but we were not impressed. Obviously we weren't expecting luxury for the price and to be honest we just wanted somewhere to sleep before our Greyhound in the morning, but I have paid less for a lot more. The hostel is strangely signposted as a different hostel which confused us,... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night since it was conveniently located for traveling to Vancouver Island the next day. While the staff is friendly and helpful, the hotel itself is in a horrible state. The rooms smelled awful and did not have bathrooms. Overall cleanliness was horrible. So if you think it'll do for one night because of... More

If your only staying in Vancouver for a night waiting for a bus or a train then this is a great location. Right across the street from the station. The staff were very friendly but the rooms need a make over, beds were very uncomfortable, and some of the characters that came in and out of the place didn't seem... More

The staff was super friendly and helpful at this hostel, and it was in a decent part of town and close to a couple of restaurants and RIGHT next to Pacific Central station, but when we checked into our room, the beds were unmade. The room also had a weird smell, and I think I got bed bugs. What got... More

Now, I really hate to write this review as the front desk staff just very helpful but...watch out for those buts...this is not the place for young kids, and anyone concerned about your surroundings. Several times walked past guys near the pub smoking weed. If you are on a limited budget, can manage with less than ideal situations, give it... More

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighborhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
