  • WiFi needs to re-login every 20-30 min. sometimes couldn't connect. 3 computers are just sitting there turned on all day left out alone wasted. It should be free for tenants. Detergent sold in a small 2 inch bag is just ridiculously small for washing a whole load of clothes. It should be in a Bigger bag or box. Hair dryer n radio clock doesn't work couldn't listen to music, had no idea what time it was all day. Freezer should be in kitchen to freeze frozen food, not basement. great service.

  • Great location and value. My only complaint is that the wifi was so slow it was barely usable and the kitchen doesn't have a stove.

  • i was sent a confirmation with total of 172.20 to pay on arrival which turned out being 219.27. i will likely book directly with the HI hostels to avoid extra charges.

  • everything was great, except :WIFI connection, not good. also, hot dishwasher in kitchen would have been nice & sanitary instead of depending on travelers from many different countries to clean common shared dishes?? staff very friendly & helpful & it would be nice if private rooms had tv as other travelers always controlled tv remote??

  • Easy to find and good value with free breakfast. Clean washrooms. Granville Stret is a bit lively and can be noisy but on the whole a good place to stay at with very helpful staff. Thanks 😀

  • When booking, there is no mention that taxes are not included, and that the quoted rate is for Hostelling International members (otherwise costs 10% more). In fact, there is no mention of this until AFTER booking. I was very surprised (and angry) when I learned that I actually had to pay around $75 more at time of arrival for 4 nights in a private room than the price I was quoted (and agreed to) at booking!
    Owner Comment

    Thank you for your comments. Our advertised rates are for HI members, and we do include this information in our hostel description and in the Must-Read Hostel Info section. We have entered the info in every spot that allows us to. I have forwarded your comments to them to let them know that you felt this information could be highlighted better, & I'm hoping they will cooperate and allow us to include this info in a better way! Keith, Manager

  • The physical layout of the hostel is pretty similar to that of a hotel, so it feels a bit antisocial sometimes. But the staff were super friendly and I made great friends during my stay. The location is amazing-- walking distance to lots of cool spots in downtown vancouver.
