  • Great hostel. Only concern was how the room got too hot, at least on the fourth floor. One of the windows did not open. They were considerate enough to bring in an electric fan in the room, but it was not enough to cool down the whole room. Maybe having two would've been great.

  • My top grade,one of the finest enjoyable staffed hostels I have had any chance to stay at. The property is kept clean and tidy and the nice new couches are so good as is the new hardly a squeak in them nicely made beds! Always a nice time,... just say hello and everyone is pleased to help, or to be friendly (can always make a new friend here) . Food (groceries) and drink (downstairs) or steps away in world famous gas town where its always buzzing. I would stay again. The Best.

  • Wifi was weak and kept cutting out. Pub crawl was very under-whelming. Our guide said we'd go to 4-5 pubs, we went to 2, and then he left us. I asked front desk for suggestions of things to do, and it was like pulling teeth to get ideas of sites to see. It also wasn't very clear on this site that I'd be charged an additional 10% since I wasn't an HI member. Also, my dryer didn't really work to dry my clothes after washing them, and the front desk shrugged and offered no help. Not worth price.

  • Had a blast at this place! Not to far of a walk to the main stuff downtown. About a 20 min walk to BC place.

  • There was somebody sleeping in my bed when I arrived. Servicies were terrible. They hadn't told me that the room has been changed. Which in result, I lost my slippers that I had put in my room

  • It was great here. The only reason I did not give the staff the highest rating was "Kath" (that's all I could see of her name tag, there was some other lanyard covering part of it). It was Tuesday afternoon around 2:00 pm. there was no one at the counter or in the lobby so she was not busy. I asked her if she could help me with my wifi connection and she acted pretty rude about it like why should I do this. Meredith was awesome!!! In general this place was great! Clean, quiet, great loc
