    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!

    Wasnt really bad as what i read in some other reviews. Just the showers are bit congested, but considering its a heritage building, i guess its best what they could do for. other than that its pretty awesome, and worth the money.

    Seriously the shower situation is a bit ridiculous. Like I don't understand how they were designed like that in the 1st place. It is impossible to put clothes on or take them off inside the private space. You could have just had 2 showers and it would have been miles better. There also needs to be fans in the rooms - the air flow situation is awful. You could also break rooms down into cat level and non cat level because the cat can wander freely between rooms on the 1st floor.

    This was a great place for us to stay for one night. Located very conveniently in downtown Vancouver. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were able to store our baggage without problem before check-in and after check-out. We also rented some bikes to ride on the seawall at a very good rate. The only thing was that the mattress in our room was quite thin and a bit uncomfortable. All in all it was a good place to stay.

    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!

    This hostel is right above a bar, so prepare for noise. They do provide free ear plugs at reception, which was greatly appreciated. Having said that, the bar is pretty fun and lively, which makes for an easy going and fun atmosphere within the hostel. The bathrooms were fine, although the showers were very small with nowhere dry to change. It's very cheap for the west coast of North America, and for what you get, it's pretty good.

    Very Good

    If you're looking for savings, this would be the place. That being said, walls are paper thin, you can hear everything going on. Bunk beds were very rickety. Washroom floors were wet and riddled with paper towels. It's definitely not a hostel to spend your time in, especially the bedrooms. But I understand you get what you pay for – it's situated in an excellent location at a good price.
