          Really great backpacker hostel. This place is unique and I never been in a place like there before. The staff is allright and rooms are ok. You can't find cheaper in Vancouver and if you know how to live without luxury, this place if perfect.

          I stayed 3 months in the hostel. At the first sight it didn't seem a nice place. But hold on, sometimes you should give it a second try and you might find out the beauty underneath the surface. Enjoy your stay!

          If you are looking for a place to have adventures, meet people form all over the world and a 420 friendly environment, this is the hostel. Muy recomendado para auténticos aventureros y gente que quiere no desangrarse pagando por un techo.

          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

          The hostel is sorry for not be so clean , but we hire guest for cleaning and many of them and they say that this hostel is much cleaner than other apartment or house were travelers live, and they are very messy them self ,but the hostel is worth the fun the free beer, the sex and love ,friendly place with musical instruments instead of WiFi and the old charm of the house ok we will hire you at $30 per hour please do good job
