    Overall my stay at the hostel was amazing. I had to check in late and the staff was very accommodating and helpful with that. I couldn’t sleep well enough because the person under me snored way too loud but that isn’t the hostels problem. Overall for what you pay, you’re definitely getting a good stay.

    My stay was very comfortable. And thanks for keeping the price low. I could see the effort that goes into making that possible. I found the check-in process confusing and a little tedious but that could simply because this was my first time. Thanks again.

    Having to text staff who didn’t know English super well was kinda frustrating. Having my personal information sent to an other county was a process I didn’t feel super comfortable with. But the building was clean and the people were nice. Plus, the value for getting a place in Vancouver for that cheap is excellent. Overall, maybe get a receptionist. But thanks for the great stay!

    Staff are friendly, but the room I stayed in was a bit dirty and the flat pretty run down. Would be great if they could just make the place loom cleaner and better, would make a better lasting impression. If your looking for a cheap night or two, it will do 👌

    Running a place remotely is not always is the best idea

    Worst check in experience ever. No instructions about where to go or how to pay. When I eventually spoke to someone in person they were patronizing and said it was too much work for them to send people instructions in advance.

    Easily the worst hostel experience I've ever had. The 'hostel' is actually 4 houses, which they do a terrible job of managing remotely. You arrive to a note that says to whatsapp them for check in instructions, which should've been sent in advance at least. You might not even be at the house you're sleeping in. They kept getting us mixed up with other ppl/ houses. Didn't know the right WiFi network or password for our house. Payment was another nightmare. They don't tell you you can e-transfer.

    For what I paid, this hostel was as joke. The location was terrible, the 'self check in' was a nightmare as the owner only communicated via delayed text messages, the facilities were dreadful (I had to wait over and hour to be given a towel which was stained, damp and smelt like dog) and to top it all off you sleep on mattresses on the floor with cigarette smoke hanging in the air. Woken early by the owner with a horrendously loud leaf blower. DO NOT STAY HERE

    The property was filthy no cleaning had been done, the bed sheets were stained! Massively overpriced and lack of staff made me feel unsafe
