Roll out of bed for a free breakfast of muffins, fruit and bagels at HI Vancouver Downtown. There's also free coffee, tea and purified water! Take your caffeine hit out to our rooftop terrace and grab a table with a parasol or spread out on a sun bed. Or join one of our tours to Stanley Park or Lynn Valley. On cloudy days, take an armchair seat in our library (it's lined with bookshelves full of great reads). We also have a TV room with cable, where you can catch up on your favourite shows in our cinema-style seats.


We're located in the peaceful West End residential neighbourhood which is an easy walk from the sights. One block away you'll find Davie St – a great place for hanging out in cafés or clubbing. Walk 10 minutes and you'll reach Sunset Beach or False Creek Ferries for a trip to Granville Island (pick up seafood at the public market to bring back for dinner). To get here from Vancouver International Airport, take the Canada Line train to the Yaletown-Roundhouse stop. Hop on the 6 Davie bus (Westbound) to Thurlow St and we're a 2-minute walk from there. It should take around 40 minutes in total.

Rooms and Dorms

As well as private rooms, we have mixed and single-sex dorms. All our rooms have sinks and your bunk comes with free linen and towels. We're also wheelchair-friendly. Store your stuff in a security locker – that, and the secure key-card access, should keep it all safe!

Extras and activities

Make a packed lunch in our huge kitchen before heading off for a spot of window shopping at CF Pacific Centre mall. If you're staying in one night, you can use our free Wi-Fi to post some pics of pool competitions in our games room. Lost that last round? Step up to the foosball table to show who's boss. And if that wasn't successful either, pop by our 24-hour reception to get tips for late-opening bars nearby.

    Nice hostel in a good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Only thing is the rooms aren't air conditioned so it gets quite hot.

    My friend and I stayed here for a half marathon and so though we were not using the many amenities this hostel provides we were really impressed with how much was offered for the price! It certainly provided exactly what we needed for the weekend, even free towels, breakfast, and parking. The location is awesome, walking distance to anything you could want in downtown. The main amazing thing, though, was the staff. SO friendly and genuinely concerned with making our experience great :) Thank you

    Great place to stay. Clean facilities, attentive staff and great area. If you don’t want your things to be stolen from your car, please pay for private parking! My room was HOT. And they had a fan running but other than that, clean sheets, spacey lockers and clean room.

    Wifi isn’t that great but it can still get there in the end. It’s location in my opinion is quite good because it’s away from the nosiness of downtown but it is a good 5-10min walk away which isn’t too bad but something to consider Ps toilets and showers are communal....bit of a yikes
