  • Patrick was an amazing host and had many great stories to share. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. We were invited out by Patrick and a few of the other guests and there was a huge emphasis on inclusivity.

  • Cozy nook in the heart of the bustling city center. Great hospitality! Felt like I was staying in someone's home rather than a hostel, which I technically was :p Central location. Comfy beds! Very very big Canadian style breakfast. All around wonderful place!

  • My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights; we parked our car and walked everywhere! The location is AMAZING and the house-owners are incredible people. The complimentary breakfast is out-of-this-world delicious; there was home made breads, yogurt and jams every morning! The only downside is that we had to pay to park our car as it is right downtown, otherwise, it is amazing and I will be going back to stay again.

  • This hostile has a fun, funky, laid back ambiance that is very homey/welcoming while at the same time having "house rules" that are enforced to protect guests' quiet time and security. The However, if one has cat allergies, then you'll have to pass on this place because the owners' cats are roaming around. Also, if you're sensitive to smells, you'll definitely notice the smell of a kitty litter box. If you're okay with cats, then I'd recommend this place to visitors passing through Vancouver.

  • What a beautiful place you have! I was blown away by how NICE the house is and the extent of the facilities. The kitchen is gorgeous, my room was big and comfortable, and everywhere I looked, something cool (whether it be a decoration, a cute sign, or a cat) was looking back at me. I've already been recommending this place to friends and if I'm ever looking for a place to stay in Vancouver again, yours is the first number I'll call!

  • Urban Hideaway is truly a treasure in the Vancouver Gastown area. We loved this charming, hostel and will absolutely stay again. We found the accommodations exactly as described and appreciated the staff for accommodating our very late check in. There was parking readily available and Gastown was just a few blocks away. Overall UH was clean, secure, the staff was very friendly and fixings for breakfast were way above average!
