    I stayed in a mixed 8-bed dorm and it was perfect, the room had safes and a large crate to store personal belongings (locks not included for these, but a quick trip to the dollar store solved this in minutes). The bathrooms were perfect, clean and no problems, they also felt very secure as you needed to use your key to open the door each time. The bar downstairs has a great atmosphere and music and is perfect for getting to know your dorm :-)

    Very Good

    The check in and out were easy and the people at the front desk were nice and helpful. However, the women's shower on the second floor was one failed construction. There are only two for the whole floor and they were really hard to maneuver in (I am an average weight and short individual). I could not hang or lay my clothes anywhere nor could I dry off or put clothes on in the shower. With the hot water coming in and out there was no escape from the at times freezing shower waves.

    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!!

    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!

    It's a cheap hostel in a good location, probably good if you want to party. But other than that it's not worth it. The staff is rude and arrogant, the building looks like it's about to break down and the bathrooms are simply disgusting.
