    The hostel is in a great location, only negative is that it is a few blocks away from Hastings which for those that aren’t aware could be slightly off putting. The hostel itself has a good vibe, great bar downstairs with good entertainment. The kitchen and bathrooms could do with some updating and the kitchen could definitely do with an oven.

    My stay at the Cambie was just fine. You can’t beat the location, Gastown is awesome and so close to transit that connects you everywhere else. I only stayed here for one night, which was enough after I saw a little mouse running around my room. It’s an old building, I guess. Still, a little shook. Staff was awesome though!

    It has a good relation between prize and quality, it has a perfect location and it is good if you like to party and make friends ( it's a young environment). But it smells like cat, the hallway it's a bit dirty, and it's hard to sleep at night because of the noise that comes from the bar.

    Decent location in Gastown and the bar downstairs serves a great selection of beers; but the facilities were lacking. Only 3 toilets/showers per floor. Very basic rooms with ventilation problems and a tiny kitchen/social area with not enough room to do anything in. For what you pay I'd recommend other hostels e.g. Samesun they do breakfast and daily tours so you get more for your money.

    The facilities are not well maintained, the kitchen and the bathroom are pretty dirty. Bathrooms are very small and the showers are not convenient. Need to rent a towel for $2. The kitchen was left with all the dishes of dirty guests.
