the washrooms were very dirty and the locker inside the room too small, there are other hostels in the city with a good location too and with even better prices

Hello and thanks for your feedback. New Years was a very busy time with people getting ready for heading out so the washrooms were at a higher volume than normal. Apologies if they were left in a bit of disarray for you. Hope you had a good New Years in the city though!

Very impressed with the staff, the location, the cleanliness of the place (including the showers/bathrooms), and the general order of things. They've got it together at this hostel. Loved the bar too, although the beer and food are pretty poor quality. Luckily the atmosphere and people make up for it.

Excellent hostel. All the employees were extremely friendly and very helpful. It was a very clean hostel and well maintained. there was only a few showers per floor however I very rarely had to wait. The staff at the front desk were very helpful with directions and recommendations. The hostel organised daily events, allowing people to see as much of Vancouver as possible, and made sure everyone had the opportunity to come along. Also the Beaver bar was excellent for food and drinks.

Always a good place. The price is right, location great and welcoming staff. The activities are well organized, and the bar on site always helps to meet new people.

Only stayed here one night passing through Vancouver from Whistler. The staff was really helpful, there was a bar with tons of activities on the first floor of the hostel, and it was right in the middle of all the action in Vancouver. It was walking distance from bars, clubs, restaurants, and public transit. The front rooms that are on the street side were a bit noisy and didn't have the newest furniture but it worked and there were still outlets, lights, lockers for each bunk.

Be prepared to meet more Australian ski bums than you thought ever existed. The activities coordinator, Stephanie, is very nice (and cute too!) The bar downstairs, which is open to the public, is very convenient and serves decent food at incredibly low prices.

Had a great stay here! The best thing was of course the wonderful staff and the other travelers but I also loved that Stephanie organizes different tours. An awesome tour with good facts and stuff you will remember. Who knew that newly weds like to have their picture taken on a pile of garbage??

Hello, Thanks for your feedback. If your bed was unmade it was either a) someone else's bed or b) our cleaning staff somehow missed it. In either case, just let the desk know and we will get it made for you in just a couple of minutes. Cheers Pete

I first checked into the hostel and was greeted by friendly staff who explained the hostel to me and how it worked. There was a great atmosphere as soon as I walked into the hostel.The kitchen and common area was huge! Great for socializing! My bed was made and there were lockers in the room to store my personal belongings. The toilets were really clean - I was pretty impressed! The Beaver Bar have good value food and drinks! Fun activities run by the hostel everyday make it easy to meet people!
