It wasn'thorrible, we had a private room and we're close to the washrooms. The hostel had a bunch of character too which was cool. Now that a hostel is like $10 less than a cheap hotel I'm always hoping I'm paying for character with hostels. The blankets, toilets and showers were all a bit less on the clean side.
Location and cost were the biggest pluses for staying here. Main issue for myself was lack of parking.
Good staff, great location with a very international ambient. Lots of options provided to visit Vancouver on a budget The breakfast could be better and is a bit expensive compared with most of the hostels similar to this one that I have been to around the globe
The beds were comfortable and it was a good location in Vancouver. This is definitely a hostel for people who are looking to party. This is not me. If it had been 5 years ago I probably would of enjoyed my stay more. The area it is in seems to be all about the nightlife and the bar downstairs is very loud until 2 or 3 in the morning. If wanna be a part of that scene and can sleep through that this place is for you! But if you're someone who likes to be asleep by midnight like myself you may want to seek out other options.
Good if you're young and out and about to drink. They have a bar downstairs that's filled with energetic and sociable people and very close to the bars in Gastown.
If you like sleeping in a 90 degree room all night with any window access, this is the place for you
Close proximity to downtown Staff was not helpful. From what I was charged, this definitely was not a value stay as intended.
Very uncomfortable bed on the double room, super noisy! Don't expect to sleep much, the stairs are super noisy too and from 6am you can hear people already walking. Every time someone opens and close a door you will hear it too.
Great location and staff. Was given good directions on how to get into the hostel after closing hours and details on the parking in the area. The room had all we needed (bunk with a double and single bed for 3 people), the mattresses were comfortable and the sheets were clean. Had a sink in the room which was convenient. Got to see a real locksmith do work on the doorknob of my unit. The doorknob lock (the one where you turn the nub from the inside) needed a different key than the deadbolt, which was unavailable. Luckily we only tried using the doorknob lock the morning after we arrived, or else we would have gotten locked out of our room all night, but were still locked out for a couple hours until the staff came back during business hours. The situation was sorted out quickly by getting a locksmith who had to drill the doorknob because the locking mechanism was old and stuck together.
