Hostel stay was fantastic and was a great location, central to everything. We loved the fact that there was heating and it was maintained at a great level. Had a good range for breakfast and general facilities were great, would be great to see some improved cooking facilities in the kitchen as only a microwave and toaster (but we were aware of this when we booked anyway).

Location was excellent! Right near robson street for shopping, yaletown and on granville street where there are heaps of bars and shops. We had a private room and it was awesome - warm and clean. Would definitely recommend this place.

This hostel is in a great location for exploring Vancouver. Wonderful friendly staff and excellent service allowing me to store my bag for free for a couple of days while I visited the Island in between stays at the hostel. Great common room area, well stocked kitchen and many fun planned activities. Would recommend as the place to stay when in Vancouver :-)

Fantastic location and facilities. My only negative comment would be a slightly lacking atmosphere. I have stayed at the samesun across the road and that is too far in the opposite direction of non-stop partying. My preference is for somewhere in between the two.

No cooking facilities, it is not convenient.

Fantastic hostel. I think just the general layout made it slightly less conducive to and openness that would aid single traveler mingling.

Well located hostel in downtown Vancouver. Not what I expected after staying at other great HI hostels. Very little community feeling, makes it difficult to meet people when you are travelling alone. Breakfast provided was great although there are few kitchen facilities and it feels very dirty. Would be great if they could provide more items for washing dishes. Overall, a convenient hostel for a short stay.

The place is a little bit old and had some bad smell. Free breakfast was nice but the place was too small to accomodate all travelers. Location is perfect, the shopping area is not a far distance to walk and so is the Stanley Park. People were friendly and easy to make new friends. Room was a little bit too small but the bathroom was clean and get cleaned everyday!!

It was in a good location, close to everything, and the staff was cool. However, the internet was the slowest I have ever experienced, every tour I signed up for got cancelled at the last minute (which was really a let down,) and the building just generally needs a face lift.

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice complimentary breakfast. Weird smell in the hallways and elevator. Best location in town!

Excellent location, very clean, especially showers and toilet, breakfast every morning but not a lot of variety. Overall this is a very nice hostel to stay but the only drawback is that there is very poor wifi!!

Great atmosphere, common area to watch TV and kitchen on the first floor. Breakfast every morning, got very sick of having the same thing every morning but it's fine if you're only staying for a few days. There was no games room however. Bathrooms were clean. Hostel could have organized more events but they did good day trips. Overall had a great stay in the hostel, staff are helpful and there was a relaxed atmosphere. Great location, situated on the main street close to a lot.
