I had a great stay at this hostel. To be fair i wasnt really looking to 'mingle' with others all that much as i was travelling with a friend but at one of the burger nights on the rooftop i met heaps of lovely people who were up for a chat.
The free breakfast was the same as all HI's, bagels, toast, juice etc.
the best bit of this hostel is the location. Maybe vancouver is a safe place in general, but this was great. My friend and i (two young girls) walked home at night in the dark and didnt feel uneasy once. Infact, people we passed actually said hello! This location is close to english bay beach and davie street. Davie street is awesome and has heaps of bars and restaurants and interesting characters. We also walked about 30 mins to granville island which was great, and maybe about 30 mins to canada square for the fireworks on canada day.
The rooms here are nothing flash, but that doesnt bother me. They were clean and close to the bathrooms which werent super clean, but perfectly acceptable.
Staff were happy to help and good for a chat.
I would love to stay here again.
