Really, the only down side to this hostel is the wifi - if you will have need of it while you're staying you'll have to go to Starbucks down the road. It's fairly hit and miss, then it was out completely for 3 days while I was there. Everything else about this hostel is really good though

There is almost nice. However, I couldn't connect the internet during my stay. I hope it will be fine.

Clean hostel, fantastic location, good breakfast, safe & secure. I was a female solo traveller &felt very comfortable at this hostel. It is large & a lot of families and groups stay at this hostel. The hostel organises a lot of activities, some were cancelled though. I would stay here again when in Vancouver.

We stayed there for 3 nights. Staff during the day was really nice and helpful. We chose a private room that was ok. Could be a little bit more cheerful and the mattress was really hard. Seems like that it isn't possible that 3 persons take a shower at the same time. Breakfast was good they had always enough and you can choose what to eat. If you have the time sign in for one of Eriks tours they are awesome.

Not too bad, it's a huge hostel, the staff are friendly, the facilities are ok, the building is a bit old. Internet is terrible but other than that it was great!

great location- right by davie st and english bay and close enough to downtown and even broadway. staff was very nice and the room was not excellent but good enough - great value for money and great location!

The style and tone of this hostel is perfect for those wanting a low key experience, and Vanvcouver is big enough that it also offers a party crowd option at other hostels. This hostel gets top marks from me.

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!

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.
