The staff was not really helpful and answered my requests relunctantly. Also the furniture was quite shabby and the internet in the rooms worked really slowly. However, the breakfast was great!!!


Great location near to shops, stanley park and ferry to granville island. Good free breakfast, although only served until 9:15 which is a bit early. Elevator up to 4th floor so no lugging heavy bagd. My room was too small for 4 people though and there was no room for everyones bags. There were lockers though. Staff on reception could have been more helpful and informative but on the whole a good hostel. Excellent thai place only 2 minutes away; Thai Bssil, good food and reasonable prices.


Sometimes the magnetic key failed. Although they record again without problem, it's a little... but it helps to communicate with other guests... >:o)

I greatly enjoyed my stay. The staff was very helpful, Erik's tour was a great surprise, and I loved the diversity of the people staying at the hostel.

Just had a perfect long weekend stay. Had nice room mates and even went for a drink with them twice.
