The bed needed a new mattress. There also should have been milk or an alternative to go with the complimentary coffee. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The location and staff are very good, but it is a pity that cleaness is not satisfied. There is no sheets on the bed. My friend and I were biten by unknown insects and felt itched.

Hotel Ambassador is a mix between a hostel and a hotel really. There are shared bathrooms (which were always clean and accessible), simple decor, kitchen and lounge facilities and friendly staff. There were perks including free and fast wifi, good location, maps and advice from the staff and free to leave luggage for the day. There is no elevator and all the rooms are upstairs. We stayed one night and found this place perfect for our needs.

It was peaceful, quiet and so so clean! Yet still in a hip part of town. Perfect location too. I'd recommend my 20 year old brother to stay here and I'd also recommend my grandma to stay here. Staff was so friendly and always willing to help!

Good value for a very central location, close to everything. Granville Street is a party street, but the noise didn't bother me (I had a room facing the back, not the street itself) but most of the club are a couple of blocks away. The room and the shared bathrooms are clean, not hospital clean, but clean enough to me. There is a locker in the room, in which you can fit a small laptop. The Internet is pretty slow in the room though.

The bed was hard as a rock and the cleanliness of the sheets were questionable. Having an in room t.v. with cable was great for any down time

Wealth to stay. Nice an big kitchen, busy laundry room. Although it is on Granville street, but it takes 15mins to walk to the center.

Overall good, It was the 2nd time that i have stayed there. Only negative things that i will say is that the room they had me staying in, the bed rolled. also regarding the laundry facilities, they did not provide washing detergent which i thought was a bit stingy, but overall good, and id book again with them.

Very hot in the room. No aircon, no fresh air. It smells terrible because there is a neighbour chimney outside and it's noisy as well, day

No aircon. Very hot in the room. It smells bad, because some rooms look at a courtyard next to with a chimney that it's very noisy as well. The TV didn't work at all. Very old fashioned hotel. It's like a hostel.. Good points: water in the room, fridge.

The staff were awesome - very helpful and friendly. The hostel is in an excellent position in Downtown Vancouver and is close to everything. I thought the value for money was second to none.
