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

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!

    I really enjoyed my stay here. Amazing location, comfortable bedding, hot shower, and delicious breakfast. A little more attention on cleanliness would make it a 10 on 10! Thank you for your hospitality. Will come back again.

    The hostel itself was pretty average. I personally wouldn’t recommend it if you’re hoping for an early night, the music in the bar downstairs is crazy loud and resulted in the beds in my room actually shaking on 2 of the 4 nights I stayed there. Bar is cheap enough though if you’re wanting to get a quick bite to eat or a drink.

    Ask for earplugs or bring your own. Be prepared for an unexpected cold shower.

    This place is right above a bar so do not expect to get much sleep. The bathrooms only open with a key (very difficult when you have an armful of shower items). There is only a very small locker by each bed, only big enough for a small purse or wallet. There’s not much room to put a suitcase or backpack as the rooms are very small. It’s perfect if you’re wanting somewhere to drunkenly crash after being at the bar but I did not feel comfortable there. Very close to Waterfront station though.
