DirectionsShow MapHide Map
From the Airport (YVR):
1. Public transit: Take the Canada Line train heading to downtown Vancouver. Get off at the Yaletown - Roundhouse stop. Exit to Davie Street. Board the C23 Davie bus (Westbound) and take this bus to Thurlow St. (the stop is by the Shopper's Drug Mart). Cross the street at the lights and go South (down the hill) one block. We are on your right - on the corner of Thurlow and Burnaby Streets. Cost: $9.00 ($7.75 after 6.30pm and weekends). You will need correct change (pay for a 2 zone transfer before boarding the Canada Line). Time: 40 minutes.
Taxi ride from the Airport is approximately $30.
For late night arrivals catch the #N10 'DOWNTOWN' bus from Domestic Arrivals (departs at 01:27, 01:57, and 02:27), and get off the bus at Seymour and Davie. From here, you can either catch a #6 bus (may run as #N6), or walk the five blocks.
2. Taxi: Cost: Approximately $30.00 (plus tip). Time: 25-30 minutes
From the Train Station/Greyhound:
Transit ($2.75): Go out the front door of Pacific Central Station and walk across the street, where you will see a city bus stop. Catch #C21 Beach. You can get off at Thurlow and then walk up the hill to the hostel (but this is not easy with lots of luggage). The alternative is to ride the C21 all the way to the end of the line, and switch to a #6 Downtown or #C23 Main Street Station, which will come up the hill on Davie Street. Get off at Davie and Thurlow (at the Denny's Restaurant) and walk one block down Thurlow to Burnaby.
Easy walk to Stanley Park, Davie Street, Robson Street and Granville Street. Take a Ferry to Granville Island and watch a Sunset at the Beach. Close to everything!
