    Is a party hostel, the atmosphere is ok, the cleaning was regular in some parts, in my experience bathrooms were very small and uncomfortable, many people in a small space and you can not put your cleaning stuffs

    Look here's the deal. On paper this is a very nice place to stay. Cheap clean amazing location with full kitchen and breakfast discounts. HOWEVER don't stay here if you bake sleep cause you won't get any until the bar is closed at two. It's stupid loud in part because the bar has their Amps in the ceiling. Idk I made it through my stay okay but that really sucked tbh

    If one is looking for a party hostel in Vancouver, look no further! I enjoyed this place, but it actually was a little bit to much party for me. The bar area is huge and it seems to be a huge spot for locals to go out at. I will say the best part about this hostel is the location. It is near many other bars and restaurants. The facilities and cleanliness were okay. Hit or miss on the staff, some were friendly others were not! All in all not bad, but I would not stay again.

    When you're looking for a party hostel, go for it! I actually just wanted to rest cause I was omw from the Rockies to Seattle and when I checked in at 10 pm my bed wasn't even ready... Not my favourite! Front office staff was very nice though!!

    This hostel was in a great location. However - the shower did not get hot at all during our 5 night stay, despite running the water for 5-10 minutes before getting in. The shower was mouldy and held together by duct tape. The rooms and beds were basic but they were okay and what we would have expected for the price. The main kitchen facilities were very basic and also very messy. We did not feel we could cook or use this space at all. The communal area was very small and rather unwelcoming.

    The dorm and facilities were extremly dirty (e.g. a blood stain on the sheet, an empty beet bottle on the shelf, etc.). Also, the hostel owns a bar/ club above which we slept/ or not because it was so loud, that even with ear plugs, one could not sleep until it was turned off around 2/3 am. No value for money and unfortunately no good experience for our only two nights in Vancouver!
