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.

    Great location. I will come again. Private room was great for us, bigger than I expected. Bed was ok. Kitchen could be cleaner but that is the fault of other guests who do not clean after themselves. Very laidback hostel. Only one stove with 3 out of 4 stove elements were working. Breakfast is free: tea or coffee and bagels with jam, butter or cream cheese.

    Good hostel in downtown Vancouver. The cleanness of the hostel is up to par, and considering what going on in the world right now which is a good thing. I would imagine in normal times there would have been fun activities to do however in our new normal of social distancing they are not possible to run. I enjoyed my stay and sightseeing of Vancouver. Its great they have free Wi Fi however sometimes it's nice to have a TV or bookshelf in a hostel so during your travel downtown your not bored.

    3rd Visit. Covid didn't destroy the use of lockers so there's that: Security A+! Granville has definately changed for the worse; don't expect Piccadilly Circus. I had one mumbling homeless man get verbally defensive (profanities etc) in front of us whilst we were obliviously stoned outside the main entrance - no idea what he wanted. Scottish Andy was great, interior atmosphere (post check-in) is fine good sociability if you seek it. Reduced breakfast perks but still lovely bagels thanks guys!

    Good location central to most attractions. Breakfast was simple but did the job (bagel and coffee). However there was no physical distancing or masking in the common areas, which made me feel uncomfortable.

    The private room was comfortable for sleep but there was an unpleasant smell in the hall perhaps related to the renovations? Other guests were not maitaining a safe physical distance.

    Not completely terrible, but also not great. Hallway and common room smelt like fresh vomit during my stay, which was the most off-putting thing. Kind of a strange crowd staying there as well, but luckily my roomie was amazing and so friendly, which was kind of the only positive about my stay here to be quite honest. I’ve stayed at numerous hostels before and although this one wasn’t absolutely disastrous, for the price, it was not good value for money.
