I stayed here for about a week in February while visiting beautiful Vancouver with a group from Ontario. This is a great hotel for those looking for superb value at a lower cost - you aren't going to find anything much cheaper than this in a better/safer and more central location. No food is available directly inside, but tons of places to get food in the area. If you're looking to cook for yourself, you can actually get free pots/pans/utensils/dishes at the front desk if you need them! Lots of friendly travellers from abroad, and I had quite a bit of fun meeting other people in the common kitchenettes and lounges! The hotel is about a 5-15 min walk to restaurants, a library, cafes, SkyTrain station/transit, the shopping/entertainment district, a grocery store, and basically everything else you need and want to see. The staff were very friendly/helpful, and the rooms and facilities were incredibly clean. Not all of the rooms have bathrooms - some are in the hallways and with others there is a joint (shared) bathroom between two rooms. I wasn't the biggest fan of this but I could have selected a slightly more expensive room with a private bathroom if I had wanted. My only other complaint is the internet - you do have to pay, and I found that it was pretty slow during my use. Otherwise, a great place to stay for any traveller (especially extended stays) and would highly recommend it!
