“disgusting”
Reviewed July 7, 2010

Bed was infested with bed bugs (loads of them, must have been there for a while). The rooms have no windows, ventilation or AC. Bar music very loud in rooms, especially when live music plays at the weekends. Bathroom was dirty and whole room smelled of stale urine. No atmosphere, small dingy kitchen is only amenity.

The bar itself is great for a drink, but please stay somewhere else!!!!

There are some great hostels in nanaimo, don't be tempted by this one!

Tempting due to its low cost, but spending a bit more for a better place is well worth your money! This place is so gross that I can't believe we decided to stay there. To begin with, the room was a windowless box, devoid of AC or even a fan. Fortunately it wasn't hot outside when we stayed there. The mattress was one of the worst we'd ever slept on, like sleeping directly on a box spring. The sheets had hair on them (to be fair, the bartender got us fresh sheets after we pointed this out). The bathroom floor was dirty. The toilet was leaky, so it alternately trickled and filled continuously, all night long. The lighting was dim. The kitchen was broken-down and dingy. And there was loud music till midnight. Really, the bartenders were as nice as could be, but they couldn't save this place from being disgusting and a really poor choice for even the budget-minded traveler.

  • Liked — bartenders
  • Disliked — dirty, windowless room with crappy bed and trickling toilet
