From beer to bed to breakfast the Cambie Hostel @ Gastown is the best way to stay in the most historic district in the city.

Students, artists, scenesters, hipsters and professionals (so pretty much everyone) pack the bar every night so it is never the same. View House Rules

Overview

Here at The Cambie Hostel – Gastown, our decades of experience mean we know how to look after our guests. Downstairs in the city's oldest bar – The Cambie – you can meet people from all over the world, from artists to professionals to here-for-the-night travellers, and listen to live bands each week. Upstairs there's a kitchen zone in the common room – sink into the comfy sofa to watch some TV. It's a favourite spot to connect to our free Wi-Fi and post pics from the night before.

Location

Find us in the historic heart of Vancouver – Gastown. From the airport, take the SkyTrain for 30 minutes to Waterfront Station and we're a 4-minute walk away. You can also jump on the Airporter, which stops at the Pan Pacific Hotel in downtown Vancouver – 10 minutes from us on foot. To explore the city, the Granville metro station is only a 10-minute walk away or, to go further out, you can get a train from Waterfront Station. Discover nearby Granville Island (a 30-minute walk) and order some award-winning beer from Canada's first microbrewery, Island Brewery Co.

Rooms and Dorms

Your room has essentials like fresh bed linen, plus an en-suite or shared bathroom with hot showers – you can hire a towel from reception too. Stay in a mixed or female-only dorm for a social atmosphere or a private room if you're a couple or fancy a bit of seclusion. You can store your bag in an under-the-bed locker, just remember to add 'padlock' to your packing list.

Extras and activities

Start your day with a discounted hot breakfast down in the bar. There's also an ATM on site so you can keep your cash flow topped up. Before heading out, talk to our staff to get the lowdown on the must-visit areas – we'll sort you out with a free city map too. But our most popular team member has to be Oreo the cat!

    This hostel was awesome! The people were great and the place was amazing. We were situated in a very central location that allowed me and my friend to go visit all the sites (downtown, waterfront, Stanley Park). Plus it was super safe and super efficient at keeping the facilities clean.

    I really enjoyed my time there but the room didn’t have an air conditioner or a fan so it was way too warm for my liking! Other than that though everything was great!

    Overall the hostel is a great location close to Gastown and downtown and the Waterfront Station. Room was a big size, however the pillows could do with replacing. Room was facing the street and a little noisy so would recommend ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper. Breakfast with the discount was great value!

    The service is fantastic and so is the pub downstairs. I also appreciated the security, especially for female travelers. However, cleanliness could have been better, the lack of AC made sleeping difficult, and there was only one outlet for the whole room.

    This hostel is located over a very noisy bar. Don’t expect to fall asleep until 2pm. Also, bring your own towel and shampoo for the hostel dose not provide them for free. Staff is friendly and other guests are very welcoming. Great location in downtown Vancouver/Gastown.

    Lovely historic building and cozy common room which we used for a late night netflix session. The big windows over the street were lovely. The resident cat was a huge plus. Bathrooms were dirty and basic, the downstairs bar/restaurant was a mess and had loud music, not exactly the place to have a relaxing drink in. The area is really central but veeeeery dodgy. Homeless/drug addicts everywhere, literally.
