We travelled for five weeks and found the best place to stay right in the end: the Urban Hideaway Guesthouse feels like a home away from home. Patrick is incredibly friendly, helpful and draws the best maps of Vancouver. He really knows what traveller need and has fantastic recommendations for things to do or good places to grab a bite. Plus: The free breakfast that you can enjoy on the terrace outside is just fabulous (and so are the muffins Patrick made one morning for all guests).

A perfect choice to stay for a couple of days prior to our departure on our Alaskan cruise. Patrick gave me very easy directions from the Skytrain, approximately 5-10 minutes away from the stop, a plus. Upon arrival, he greeted us and gave us the interesting history of the building. We gave him our itinerary and he and Morgane drew a map and sent us on our way. Everywhere was spotless, great patio and good security. Location was important to us as we travel Vancouver and surrounding areas.

This is a terrific guesthouse - a blend of the friendliness of a hostel with the comforts of a bed&breakfast. The rooms were cosy and tidy, the kitchen well stocked and functional, and the bathrooms clean. Our host went out of his way to make us feel at home and help us with any queries we had about the city and surrounds. An all-round excellent experience, would recommend to couples and friends.

The manager at the time, Patrick, gave awesome suggestions as to what to see in the city and made our trip even better. The place was beautiful and clean and over all very friendly and lovely.

Patrick was the best host that anyone can ask for! He welcomed us with open arms at 10 pm. He drew us a map and recommended excellent places for us to eat. He even helped me book my trip to my next destination by calling other hostels to help with the booking arrangements. The hostel has a cute balcony, a very European, friendly atmosphere, and it was the best place we could have found for our very short stay in Vancouver. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!

A hidden gem! The story behind the house is very interesting which added more charm to this house. I did not stay long and did not use the upstairs facilities but had a great sleep on a clean bed and interesting conversation with the manager.As we had to leave before the kitchen opened in the morning he even packed us a breakfast to go.

Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Ground rules strictly enforced.....a good thing as it enhanced the security. Small enough for service to be very personal with opportunity to interact with others staying.Very good breakfast with impeccable organisation in the kitchen.

Our stay at Urban Hideaway was incredible! It truly is hidden in the midst of the city. There's a lovely rooftop garden and the house has so much history and character! The place was also very clean. Patrick was an excellent host and not only gave us a tour of the guesthouse but also went over great restaurant and hiking options. We will definitely recommend this place to all our friends as well as be staying there next time we visit Vancouver!
