It's also surrounded by the city's best clubs, shopping and restaurants. Hostelworld guests have said 'the colours and atmosphere and area are what make this place above and beyond the norm' at this 'fun and fabulous' hostel.

    Staff were kind and personable. Didn’t have to ask for anything. Everything was well explained at check in. Great beer selection and menu items at the Beaver. Linens were fresh and bed was comfortable. Slept the whole night without interruption from corridors or neighbours. While the hostel is wasn’t full there was activity still happening in the common room to join in on if you wanted to.

    Amazing hostel. Great staff, amazing facilities, huge common area and kitchen, and an awesome bar you can meet other travellers in and have a beer or 5 after a day of exploring. Due to Covid they weren’t doing their daily activities, but I stayed here 2 years ago and the activities they offer are amazing and make exploring the city that much easier and fun. Highly reccommend!

    Great hostel. Location a bit sketchy at night (more so as a solo female traveller) but it’s close to everything. Staff were friendly and very helpful, hostel itself was clean, and the pods offered comfort and privacy.

    Excellent hostel. Located within walking distance of Stanley Park, Gastown, and Granville Island. Loved the relatively private sleeping pods with privacy curtains, lights, and fans (fans were especially useful to block out noise. Only suggestion would be to start serving breakfast earlier - especially for people who hike or do summer sports and want to get started before the sun gets too high.

    Overall it was good to be one of the cheapest in the city. Staff is kind, they’re constantly cleaning the place and the breakfast was good (bagels are tasty), the only annoying thing that happened was having a loud group of people in one of the main areas screaming and laughing all night long, the noise was so loud i could barely sleep, even though they have a sign that says that it’s prohibited, people didn’t seem to care, I would just suggest someone checking on these things mostly at night

    Nice hostel right in the middle of the action. Unfortunately I had a roommate who snores like there was no tomorrow. The hostel was cleaned but a bit old. Facilities could be improved: more toilets, showers but mainly more place to put stuff when you’re in the toilet or the shower.

    Very Good

    Stayed for three nights. Bathrooms ok. Never felt fully clean, and definitely recommend having shower shoes. Bar was great, and the best place to meet people- sad it was closed on Mondays. Vax passport required for bar, but one of the girls in my dorm was unvaxxed, which was of mild concern. (More for her than myself due to shared nature of room.) Bed was fairly comfortable and had vents and a fan which helped with outside noise as well as temperature, but overall room not well-ventilated.

    It’s a nice party hostel but uncomfortable if you want to party and then go to sleep in peace and quiet. It was so loud in my room , I could hear the music till 2 am which made it super uncomfortable.

    Really disappointing hostel.. Not super clean, room smelled extremely bad.. Free breakfast is only 1 bagel per person. No juices, only water and coffee. Area is very sketchy. Way to expensive for what it was. No air conditioning in the room, so its very warm and humid.
