    Very quiet area within walking distance of downtown Vancouver. Easily accessible by public transit. Clean, modern rooms and facilities. Good breakfast. A good place to stay.

    The only comment I could say needs improving is how to use the key access. Fumbling around until we woke a room sleeper and he let us in. He then showed how to use the card access

    It was the first time my adult daughter had stayed in a hostel and she was very impressed with the kitchen facilities. We both liked the opportunity to join into some group activities and discounted ventures like the bicycle rental. I was glad there was a locked garage even though it cost extra.

    Erick's Tours and the staff made all the difference. I really liked the atmosphere and the ability to meet other solo travelers, and would consider staying there again however I would probably wait to hear the bathrooms were remodeled in order to book. At HI Central there were private bathrooms which made a nice difference. The shower I used in HI Downtown clearly had a mold issue and I felt like I had the residual effects of mold exposure after a shower. I was in 214 next to the bathroom.

    All was good, except this place needs more parking. Had to park a 10 minute walk away and it was costly overnight parking. The lady at the front desk was not helpful with advice on where to try for parking

    The internet didn’t reach most of the hostel and didn’t work where it did reach. Our room smelled awful. The lockers in the room were banged up. The beds had almost no privacy. It was fine if you just need a place to sleep for the night
