Great experience with this hostel. On arrival, there was an issue with my booking, but they resolved it immediately, and I was upgraded from the 8-bed mixed dorm to a 4-bed female room at no extra cost. Security was great, with swipecard access to guest only areas, and plenty of locker space in the rooms. Enjoyed some good beers, a decent burger, and excellent company downstairs in the pub, and noise fom the bar was negligable in my room on the 2nd floor. Beds were comfortable, if a bit wobbly. Location is great, right in the middle of Gastown, lots of good (& cheap) eateries close by, a 5 min walk to Waterfront Station (Transport hub), close to Downtown, and an easy, picturesque walk to Stanley Park. Full marks to the staff, who were cheerful, helpful, and a pleasure to talk to. Will stay again!

This hostel has bed bugs. It's a gross hostel. Pay more and stay somewhere that takes care of problems like this. If you stay here, make sure you leave your bags outside (as there are no bathtubs to put your bags in) and check the mattresses in your room. If you see bed bug evidence, go somewhere else. I have bed bugs in my luggage and have now imported them to my girlfriend's apartment. Great.

When I called to let the manager know, he dismissed it as though bed bugs were just part and parcel to having a hosteling experience. In Canada!? Terrible.

Ive stayed in many hostels around the world but this is the worst one I have ever stepped foot in. Fortunately the staff were friendly and gave us a refund so we didnt have to stay!!
We booked a 4 bed dorm, if the beds had been any closer together they might as well have put beds in there. The conditions of the beds/lockers were poor and the light in the room didnt work, window didnt shut. There was one bathroom on the floor with one working shower to share and 2 toilets.
The bar downstairs looked good and the staff were friendly but the area it was in was the worst part of Vancouver and not central Gastown (which is a pretty area)
Go and stay somewhere else dont even contemplate the Cambie as you will be disapointed

What do you want? Close to the citycentre and gastown? Good bar and eating possibilities insite? A cheap stay? Nice and young staff? A free muffin breakfast? Don't want to sleep? Don't use the showers and toilets? Then yes, the cambie is a very good place.

Buttttt. If you want a quite and clean place, no way, then it's a very bad choice... Always noisy, strange people, very old showers and toilets, it smells, the bed sleeps horrible, it's over and out, this place needs a very big make over.... Wifi is available but very slow.

This place is possibly the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. The place is unclean, unsanitary and it smells. The rooms all need updating; wobbly beds, mattresses that look like they havent been changed for years etc.

The hostel is in a dodgy area too, right in the middle of drug addict central. The area is full of crackheads, so dont be surprised if you see drug deals going on right outside. If you have a car, don't park it near here, it'll get broken into.
