    By far the nicest hostel I've stayed in. Friendly stay was knowledgeable about the area and ready to answer any questions. Breakfast was tasty. Bar staff was kind and fun to be around. Great location in downtown Vancouver. Close to bus stops, the train, shuttles, you name it. 10/10 will stay here again.

    Really great hostel, I was finding it really hard just now to find a fault with the place.. everything was great, even the free breakfast. The tour up Dog Mountain was great value for money and we had a very enthusiastic host/guide called Shelly ☺️ It is by far the most expensive hostel I’ve ever stayed at... like 3 times what I would pay in Europe or NZ, but for the central location in the city centre and Vancouver being expensive I think it’s maybe acceptable... only just.

    I always enjoy staying here, the staff is friendly, rooms and bathrooms clean and the location can’t be beat! Considering it’s located on a busy street you aren’t affected by the noise which is nice. This is definitely a place I’d recommend staying and will stay again, thanks.

    Really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Felt very comfortable and loved the little pod beds & the USB cables and fans. Really helped having them right next to bed. Breakfast was by far the best I've had in a hostel, quite a few options and good amount of everything. The hostel is on a very noisy road at night especially over weekend but as I was in my little pod and had the fan on, I barely heard anything, it was only when I got up to go to toilet. Toilets and bathrooms well maintained.

    Breakfeast could have had more variety. Staff might want to clean a bit more under the mattresses in the dorms. Kitchen hours could be 24/7 as midnight snacking after clubs is required. Also, better air conditioning in dorm rooms as the beds lack proper air flow, especially when the ventilation fans are against the wall. Besides that, clean, neat, tidy and handy to have a bar down stairs.

    The room we were given was way too small and narrow - 6 bed female dorm. It was difficult to move around with all of our luggage. No atmosphere at the bar as well. The lockers were too small as well.

    Not much of an atmosphere. Probably easiest to meet people at breakfast or on one of their daily outings. Good things: helpful staff, good location, bar downstairs has a good vibe but hard to meet people there, beds were comfortable, facilities were pretty clean. Bad things: no AC in the rooms so it was hot, lockers were all damaged so if someone really wanted to steal my stuff they could have. Kitchen is pretty small for the number of people this hostel sleeps. Beds aren't made. No towels.
