  • Staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is very convenient, the bathrooms could have been a bit tidier, but other than that it was a great experience!

  • If you love meeting people and partying you'll probably love this hostel. I enjoyed the breakfast and staff member helped me carry my heavy suitcase up the many stairs to the first floor which was nice. However I found it bit noisy and crowded. The rooms were small, could feel the springs through my mattress, the power outlet by my bed didn't work and the shower was very dirty/hair clogging the drain.

  • Clean and secure hostel and the area is great with a lot of places to eat and go out. Staff was great and the hostel has daily cool events, so it's easy to meet other travelers who don't stare at their smartphones and laptops all day ;-) the room I stayed in was a bit cramped but okay for a couple of days.

  • It was pretty good, all things considered. Met some cool people, honestly had a really good time. The bartender was kind of weird. A lot of people are weird in Vancouver, though. I was drunk a lot so perhaps I'm not the best reviewer.

  • Positives - The staff was very nice and helpful. My bed was comfortable. Great location! Amazing breakfast! The entire place was great! Negatives - The bathrooms could have been a little cleaner and parking was very expensive. Besides those two things the place was wonderful! I enjoyed my stay very much :o)

  • Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and great rooms! Even though they are a kinda small, each bed has its own mini fan, its own mini shelf, and its own nightlight. Great idea! Excellent free breakfast, more variety than I've ever seen before at a hostel. Wifi wasn't the best however, I recall having trouble getting consistent service throughout my stay. Even so, it was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at!
