Hostel Cat:
Cambie Gastown Hostel has a very special member of the team, Oreo the cat. Do you feel homesick or lonely? Our lovable fluffy friend will help you out!

From beer to bed to breakfast the Cambie Hostel @ Gastown is the best way to stay in the most historic district in the city. You can party like a local downstairs at the busiest bar in BC or chill upstairs with travelers from around the world in our hostel common room equipped with full kitchen amenities, TV and a big comfy couch. However, if you are after a quiet night in, please see our front desk staff for complimentary earplugs or a room on the second floor. When the day is done and you're falling asleep in a comfortable bed, you can look forward to a delicious breakfast menu at a discounted price to guests (with hash browns, toast, eggs, and sausage/ham/bacon & vegetarian option available).

Home to one of Vancouver's busiest and most diverse bars, The Cambie has become a Vancouver institution. Rock and Roll, Hip Hop, Classics, and pretty much everything else resounds off the jukebox nightly. If you fit into a scene or live outside the mainstream you belong in our bar. Students, artists, scenesters, hipsters, and professionals (so pretty much everyone) pack the bar every night, so it is never the same.

Amazing location, very social hostel as well with a great bar downstairs - I found it very easy as a solo traveller to make friends! The Cambie has a great late night happy hour from 9pm-12pm as well for cheap drinks. The music is fairly loud late at night, but there’s always lots going on at the Cambie so I didn’t mind!

Location is the ONLY thing this place has going for it. 8 bed dorm with 1 plug socket , curtain rail falling down, the hooks for coats had a screw missing so was hanging vertically. Even on a night where there was a comple change of beds the floor hadn't been swept, evidence was the pile of clipped toe nails on the floor (((((((: the shower door fell off whilst I was taking a shower. Not vibey or a place to make friends. Hate leaving bad reviews but no management to speak to during my stay.
