Great downstairs bar, very social scene, still quiet enough in the rooms.
Very big, but nice hostel right in the Center of Vancouver! Rooms are a bit small, but alright. Free breakfast is nice and bar and common rooms as well.
Great place to stay to see the city and so centrally located for some good nights out. Definitely recommend to all age groups provided you're very social. Not great if you want a relaxing trip. Love the backpackers and will definitely stay again.
Bar on site was awesome, great atmosphere. Would stay here again!
So far a great place. On the first floor you hear the music from the bar downstairs till early in the morning. Cheers Matt

I will gladly stay here again. I like how they enforce the quiet time starting at 11pm. Good move.
Location is perfect. Right smack on Granville St within walking distance from the City Centre metro. Large social room to meet different people from all over. Met lots of French and Germans on the first night I arrived and we went out clubbing for someone's birthday party. Good security measures whereby the pin for the door is changed daily at 2pm. Washer and dryer services included. Towel available in case you forgot to bring yours.
Excellent location right downtown. There is one bathroom per gender on each floor - thankfully, it didn't get too crowded. Entrance to the corridors is by a password that changes daily, and your own room is opened with an old-fashioned key.
Just an excellent vibe about the whole place. A big hostel, but with a familiar feel. Bathrooms could have been better. Bar in the lobby was brilliant. I would definitely come back.
i my opinion suppose to be breakdfast with some sort of meat .and unlimited access for caffe all day .

stay here. It's the best in Vancouver. Bar down stairs, common area, right in the middle of town. Just do it.
One of the best hostels I've ever lived in. Excellent breakfast! They provide freshly baked bagels and muffins every morning. You can just eat as much as you want!
Really nice and clean cut place. The facilities were all top notch and the sports channels and cheap drinks in the downstairs bar were a huge plus. The staff were fantastic, they were all knowledgeable about the area and were genuinely very friendly. All in all, I had a great stay, my only complaint being that it was just too big to get to know people properly. Not anyone's fault but I have experienced better in other hostels in that respect.
Hostel was in a great location, The Beaver bar was a great extra for cheap food and a place to make friends and watch sport, rooms were dirty and dusty despite daily vaccuming, food and cutlery left over from previous guests (I was there for 3 weeks!), security lacking many guests had outsiders upstairs, minimal activities provided, balcony was a great place to meet other guests and get rowdy before heading out, communal showers need a refurb, would stay again but only due to location/atmosphere
probably the best hostle experience for me so far. The staff was nice and helpful- It was youthful and active just what I need - especially for solo backpackers.
