    Nice feel about this hostel, nice staff and fun bar. A little noisey with the bar being underneath but nothing more than any other hostel. Handy location with a supermarket and burger place just opposite. Would stay here again.

    Clean bathroom and room, good location and very friendly staff but the bed is rockhard and the music from the bar downstairs is incredibly loud. It went on until 1 am so very hard to get good sleep, but what can you expect for 17$!

    Nice place. If your not a night owl it can be a harsh stay if you arrive on a band night as they are very loud and run through midnight. The wifi is a little spotty. It can dropout sometimes depending on your room. The beds are good at least better than other hostels.

    I was just for a night in the Cambie and the room/bathroom was disgusting. It was not really clean. You find in Nanaimo a better place for the same price.

    This place was ok, I’m pretty sure they over charged us...I wouldn’t stay here if you want to have a relaxing quiet night. We were trying to sleep at an awful band was playing downstairs. Recommend only if it’s your last resort.

    Terrible. It fails in all categories. It was like living in an oven filled with drug addicts. It was the worst hostel i have ever stayed at.
