Always my default choice when staying in Vancouver, as its in a quiet part of the city, with quick and easy access to shops, restaurants, bars, and a supermarket. The breakfast is one of the most diverse and extensive ones I've ever had in a hostel!

Rooms a bit cramped and the rooms and hallways could be cleaned better although not unbearable but other than that it a great hostel to stay at, the other people staying here are really nice

Staff were really knowledgeable of the area and always really friendly. The dorm room floor could have done with a hoover as the same toenail was on the floor from start to finish of the stay. Apart from that, enjoyed staying at the hostel, it's such a great location.

Within a great location, near clubs (particularly gay clubs), restaurants, bike tracks, Granville Island and more. The staff are helpful, and the bike tour and tour of Granville Island were great. The rooms are comfortable with adequate lockers, the kitchen big with plenty of cook tops, microwaves, fridges and pigeon holes for food. The bathrooms are good, however the showers can be tempramental and needed to be cleaned a little more thoroughly but overall a great hostel.

Sink in bedroom was out of service when I arrived and never got fixed while I was there. Then, the showers on our floor were broken. Staff was nice though.

The rooms are rediciously too small and there's no where to put your bag. The bunk beds feel like they're about to fall apart.

The best hostel we've ever stayed in. Quite simply. Fantastic 4 bed room. Massive selection of breakfast foods. Friendly atmosphere and located in a hip part of Downtown's Westend. Would HIGHLY recommend HI Vancouver.

a nice hostel, though rooms are small, and in winter very hot (we had our door open to let out heat during the night as the window wasn't enough). apparently in summer the rooms are freezing. big kitchen and decent breakfast, excellent staff.

Lots of things to do, lots of information to take in. Could do with a comprehensive guide/explanation of the local buses (but where couldn't?). I wasn't very impressed by the bike hire, largely because my bike's adjustable seat wouldn't stay adjusted. Everything else, especially the location, was just fine!
