Small stuffy room, expensive for a hostel bed
Vancouver is an expensive city. The hostel is the cheapest and more affordable way to sleep in downtown". I spent 1 night in August and the 2nd night now in September. I reserved this place only for the low cost and when I say "low cost" I mean for Vancouver. Staff was very friendly and location perfect!
The room was a mess and so small. They should clean and change that carpet that might be full of mites. I doubt they use the hoover BUT "you get what you pay".
Had to shorten my stay and got refunded easily.
Elevator to the right does not work properly and you can get stucked in it.
15 min walk to downtown Vancouver, 13min to train station. Next to a busy street, everything is close by.
Late check in during busy season.
A range of facilities such as laundry, library, big kitchen, plenty of places to sit, and roof top balcony. The staff were helpful when you asked for help.
Wifi hardly worked which made it very difficult for me to plan my travels which was a real let down since it’s quite pricey for a hostel. When arriving my bed sheets were covered in someone else’s hair, don’t think they had been changed!
Visitors to Vancouver will find that the HI Vancouver Downtown is a fantastic accommodation choice. The hotel is just 3km away from Waterfront Station. Transportation around the city is also convenient, with Yaletown–Roundhouse Metro Station within walking distance.

This hotel makes a great place to kick back and relax after a long day of sightseeing. This Vancouver hotel offers parking on site. This hotel is consistently one of the most popular choices for travelers to Vancouver.
