    My interactions with the owner beforehand were great, but unfortunately as another reviewer mentioned this place closed pretty unexpectedly. Luckily I did not prepay so I didn't run into any issues with refunds, but it was certainly an unpleasant surprise 2 weeks before the trip.

    This "guesthouse" or "hostel" was terrible. We had just driven a few hours from Whistler in pouring rain and were tired. We arrived at 6pm and we were met with some guy in dreadlocks (another guest) and the owner, Patrick who said "where have you...More

    Great location. Very helpful host who told us how to navigate the area on a budget. Visiting with the younger adventure seekers at breakfast was priceless. Close to everything. Gladly come here again.

    I stayed at the Urban Hideaway while taking a course at the very nearby B.C.I.T. Arriving from the airport, it's a short walk from the station in Gastown and everything else downtown Vancouver has to offer. The breakfast offers a beautiful bounty of cereals, muffins,...More

    A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
    stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
    being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
    plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
    the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
    history a more lively presence here than anywhere
    else. Having been originally founded around a popular
    worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
