We enjoyed our stay. Our room was comfortable, spacious and clean as were the separate bathrooms. Staff were friendly and the location is ideal. Only negative comments would be the toilet opposite our room. The light would not always work no matter how many times...More

The Hostel is great, close to the bus stop, grocery stores, mall, tim hortons, night clubs and pubs! However, in Downtown Vancouver there is lots of homeless and drugs! Go to Toronto! P.s. The private room is great! It seems like a hotel room.

This is a great base in Vancouver, walking distance to the very heart of town. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the old building makes it feel like you’re in a noir movie (in a good way). Highly recommended!

The hostel was OK but it kind of smelt of wee throughout most of it. Breakfast and overall cleanliness were good but the smell was ever present. Good location but not great for meeting other travellers. There’s other hostels with better common rooms and bars...More

Smack dab in the middle of Granville Street's pub and club district, we're one of the newest Vancouver hostels -- and if you're angling for access to all the partying and good times you could want, without ...More compromising on security, comfort, and cleanliness, then we're where you want to be!If you're looking for the fun of a hostel, but still want privacy, you'll love our ensuite private rooms (cable TV included!) and our two-bed dorms. These are our most popular room types, so make sure to book in advance! Less

Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs
and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the
city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday
nights are the most popular and lively, with young
revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping

I think you would feel comfortable enough at the hostel. I've stayed a few times, and there have always been a few travelers in the 50+ demo. You'll stick out, but this is a much tamer hostel than the rest in the... More

Hello, we left our luggage there just after check out for a few hours only. There is a small room for our luggages. Unclear whether hostel would allow you to store luggages over a few days.My suggestion: travel light!
