It's certainly worth making a trip to Gastown along with the other sights and attractions in the downtown core, but aside from some very nice restaurants and the proximity to the ocean, Gastown is a tourist trap and is certainly run down in many areas. The amount of homeless people was surprising and you don't have to venture too far out of Gastown to find some pretty rough areas of town.
Definitely worth seeing - but prepare yourselves for that.
