    A friend and I shared a private room at the hostel. It was very cost efficient, safe location and also walking distance to everything. The staff were AMAZING! 3 things I would just call out were: No way to control temp in rooms (since it rains frequently, it gets too cold for those of us who are not used to it). We enjoy the thought of movie room/library/pool room, but it was just not inviting at all. It's too bad bc it's a big space and has lots of potential. No lights at the rooftop.

    This is an excellent hostel for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet and away from the partying. I appreciated how clean and well-kept everything was. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and modern. I also liked how there was a movie room, a library, and a rec room. Some constructive feedback include having better access to plugs from the top bunk, better coffee because it was honestly awful, more engaging daily activities that show off more of Vancouver and at competitive prices.

    I stayed there for one night and enjoyed it! Overall great place to stay but also don't have an unrealistic expectation. Great location, awesome staffs, the rooms are a bit old but still worth the money. Only thing I didn't like so much is the doors... like, there's no way to close the door quietly and I can hear other rooms close and open the doors lol Also, if you're taking no. 6 bus after the train, make sure you take the one on the SAME SIDE when you get out of the train station. Lol

    Thin walls and loud clanking doors. Great place. Clean. Friendly staff. Superb location. Great value. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper.

    Clean, organised and very quiet. Much more akin to a hotel than a hostel, if you're looking for an atmosphere to hang out people this probably isn't the place for you. That said, the location is great and the staff are helpful.

    Pros: decent price, nice and helpful staff, plenty of rooms, great dvd collection in the movie room, pool table (coin-op) Cons: little to no social atmosphere (you’re better off in their Granville street location), stiff mattresses I also heard some mice scurrying around in the ceiling tiles of the movie room, I don’t think they have a major problem, but they are there.

    Wifi does not work in the rooms. Other than that, the hostel is fine, the beds are pretty comfortable and it was really affordable.
