If u want a quiet place, go here. If ur looking for a backpacker place with activities and vibe, dont go here. Place is very basic- wifi. No breakfast or coffee, but its cheap and near a metro station and mall. Takes abot 10-15 minutes to get to downtown via metro.


A quiet and clean place with free parking. if you are a party person, won't be suitable.

I m still in shock about the fact that they provide just the first toilette paper and that u ve to carry it to the toilet each time, I ve been in many hostels and I ve never seen that. Location is close to a big mall but far away from the city center and in zone 2 so u pay more to get there. It´s not exactly a hostel is more like a guest house but if u re planning to be in Vancouver for a while is a cheap way to start and it s also clean and quite,


The hostel was a disaster. The hotel manager was not present hired two girls, one of them (german girl) had no idea and thought only of parties. Was very unfriendly and rude. Also she had used very bad words towards guests. The hostel also has turned on the heater continuously until the evening at 8 clock. Had to sit with the jacket in the hostel. For what I paid? Would recommend anyone. Really terrible.

I've been to this place a few times already and always like to come back. There is a big mall nearby and downtown Vancouver is just a Skytrain ride away. The staff is always friendly and helpful, there's a shared kitchen, laundry, fast internet, clean, and great atmosphere.
