The location is great, just a few blocks from the beach. They get terrific nightly deals from the clubs, usually including cover and an hour or so of open bar for like $20ish. They also host their own open bar for pre-gaming. All meals are free. Downside: it's a large operation, and is run in a manner that makes it feel factory-like and impersonal. Some staffers were nice, but several were condescending and unpleasant. If you can deal with an initial bad impression, the rest will make up for it!

Island Time Hostel

San Juan, Puerto Rico

GREAT staff, great atmosphere! Very fun place, totally laid-back and chill. Met a lot of cool people here, wish I could have stayed longer. Only downside: rooms are QUITE small, as are bathrooms, and there is virtually no place to move around or store belongings. But it's not like you're going to be spending a ton of time in the rooms, with all that there is to do in PR! Loved this place, mostly for its good vibes, and would highly recommend it. :D

Cambie Hostel - Gastown

Vancouver, Canada

Fantastic place! I was lucky enough to find this hostel for a one-night stay after my travel plans changed. I wish I had been able to stay longer! The staff was great, the other guests were great, the showers were hot, there was laundry available, and the downstairs bar scene was a ton of fun. Add that to the fact that it's located in a cool, chill part of town, and you've got all the ingredients for a great stay! :)
