We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Property Description

Free all-you-can-eat breakfast! Bagels and cream cheese, cereals, muffins, scones, toast, fruit, juice, milk, tea and coffee, served every day from 8 - 10am. It's at least a $5 value, and we know you've got better places to spend that money - like on beer!

Free Wireless throughout the hostel!

Private bathrooms! Every bathroom in our hostel is a private bathroom.

** Please note, taxes not included.

Smack dab in the middle of Granville Street's pub and club district, we're one of the newest Vancouver hostels -- and if you're angling for access to all the partying and good times you could want, without compromising on security, comfort, and cleanliness, then we're where you want to be!

Our in-the-thick-of-it location makes for the perfect home base while you explore Vancouver. Our hostel has awesome daily tours that'll have you hanging out with travellers from all over the world while you teeter across the Capilano Suspension Bridge or sip a pint on one of our pub crawls.

If you're looking for the fun of a hostel, but still want privacy, you'll love our ensuite private rooms and our two-bed dorms. These are our most popular room types, so make sure to book in advance!

A quick word about our kitchen -- our previous guests have asked (and we listened!) that we mention ahead that our cooking facilities include only microwaves, toasters and kettles. If you're looking to cook up a feast, we've got two other hostels in Vancouver (Downtown and Jericho Beach) with really impressive kitchens.

We know you care about security, too, and that's why you'll find your own backpack-sized locker in your dorm. When you don't have to worry about your stuff, you can really start enjoying yourself.

So that's our story: fun, secure, comfortable, clean, and can we just put in one more plug for the Granville Street nightlife?

We can't wait to meet you!

    Great location, breakfast is good (bagels, cereals, differentbpastries, etc), the street is packed with restaurants, a 7-11 across the street. It might look a bit old, and could use some renovations, but it is s good place to stay at nevertheless.

    HI Vancouver is a great place to stay. It is in the heart of the city. Everything is easily accessible. You can walk around to get stores and restaurants. There is also a bus stop in front of the hostel making it easy to hop on and off the metro. The staff are really nice but are not wuite knowledgeable about the city. Asked 3 different staff about their recommendations and couldnt even give a decent one. But overall, its worth every penny staying here if you want to save.

    Great option if you want to stay downtown. A bit run down, but great location. No more than a max of about 25 minutes walking to everything downtown. Keep in mind that it is on Granville, so it can be loud because it is a bar street. Some washrooms were out of order, but not a big deal. The adjustment knob on the heater in my room (316) wouldn't turn so it was very hot unless I opened the window.

    A good free breakfast, the staff were nice and the bed was comfortable. A little bit expensive and not really connect with other travellers type hostel atmosphere, but good place for a night before flying the next day and I liked my stay.

    went just for a night for work. Place was good. Has option of just sharing with 1 other person which is great, no sharing with 4-7 other people. The only thing I would say was how hot the room was at night. Couldn't get it to cool down and the heat wasn't even on. Was on the the top floor though so make sense since hot air rises.
