The hostel has a great location and has a nice bar/restaurant. The rooms are spacious but were not that clean and could use some fixing up. It was also pretty noisy if you want to go to sleep "early" to catch your bus... but if you want to party you probably can have a great time in the hostel. Overall...

The Cambie Hostel in Gastown is in a great location surrounded by everything you will want to see/drink/party/eat. It is not the cleanest place in town as the building is pretty old but the Staff makes up for it for sure. Jenna M. really made our group of 4 feel at home and made sure we were taken care of,...

The bed was comfy and even had a good pillow - they are very rare in hostels worldwide! But don't expect to get to sleep before 2am, even with industrial ear plugs. The hostel is very central but they have a very rowdy bar/club attached and I felt like I was in the club itself by the noise level. I...

Great location for a night or two. Lots of great restaurants around and nightlife. The room we stayed in for the first two nights was a little small and there was stuff everywhere. I think someone was living in there long term. The room we had for our last night was much nicer. It was bigger, cleaner, and had some...

The hostel was not the best when it comes to the quality of the dorms and washrooms, however there is a free breakfast or $3.50 discount on breakfast menus, and the location is really good only a 5 minute walk from Waterfront Station, which can take you almost anywhere and also very close to Canada Place with a great view...

Has a kitchen but couldn't find much to cook with. It has a small area to eat and a small area to sit and watch tv. Downstairs is a large bar scene. Just make sure you don't arrive to early in the morning as they don't accept people in unless you paid for the night before. Beds are not very...

Cambie is located right in the centre of gastown, which is a great place to stay if you want good food, great beer and a lively nightlife. Other shopping areas and Stanley park are also within walking distance. The hostel itself was average, nothing special but a good place to stay for a couple of nights. The bar downstairs was...

We stayed here for a few nights in July. It's okay. The place was clean but it smells like urine in the corridors! Room was clean and comfortable. The showers aren't great - there were only two in the bathroom on our floor and they're not very private- the screens are almost see through and there's no area to get...

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
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 Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
