This hostel has great facilities and lots of potential. I think in a year or so when all the new buildings are finished around it, that it will be in a great location. The atmosphere was quiet although this is possibly due to the time we stayed (non peak). There is a lot of potential for this hostel to be great with a few more people staying and if the hostel organised some activities to get people mingling.

Good vibes! Can't wait to come back. Just wish the rooms weren't so stuffy at night. Minor detail though.

It took us a fair while to locate the hostel as we were looking for the green exterior which no longer existed with all the building work! We had a private room with en-suite for one night. It was just like a hotel room. Really nice decor, air conditioning unit but we didn't need it during our September stay. Breakfast the next morning was average and not a lot of food left towards the end of the 2 hour slot. They have some free parking at the back of the hostel. Short walk to the c train.

Nice hostel.

Overall, great. Staff helpful. Clean. Wonderfully located. The reading room's quiet was well-placed. The game room downstairs serves two purposes, TV and billboards. The second purpose overwhelms the first due to the size and openness of the space. Not sure theanswer, but TV was easily obliterated for several people with the pool game of two other guests. But, I didn't go away to watch TV, so not a huge problem for me.... All told, excellent.

This was a great hostel. It was easy to find and had fair sized bedrooms with big lockers. The common areas were good with a reasonable kitchen. Their aren't any shops for food near by, but the corner shop which was expensive and mostly empty. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bike hire is very good value with quality bikes. The bathroom only had one shower which was a bit annoying but didn't have to wait for long. Cinema room/social area was good too. I'd stay here again.

- Extremely cool is the TV area downstairs. Unfortunately, is it too loud sometimes to watch a movie, because the Billiard Table is in the same room. - Candy machines are too expensive, but good for your shape. ;) - That breakfast is amazing for the price

A great hostel with a great atmosphere!! And the breakfast was amazing. A bit in the outskirts I felt but it was just a short walk from the main city tram line. Everyone was really talkative and friendly and the staff were great.
