Liked: joe on reception is brilliant, when we arrived we didnt know what there was to do in Vancouver and 'he spent 10 minutes telling us the best places to go and where the tourist traps were and told us what we would personally enjoy the most. the hostel is nice and in a fantastic location. safe and secure and good atmosphere and good value for money

Disliked: kitchen needs more cutlery, dishes pots and pans. no sofas, lots of chairs but so many people not enough for everyone to sit down, computer is below average.not enough bathrooms for the amount of people staying. 4 bathrooms for about 40 rooms. hard to spot from the street

Liked: The Price is good. The staff are helpful. Buses stop across the street.I like having a sink in the room. Toilets were kept clean.

Disliked: The location is near the rougher end of town so just keep your eyes open. No outside area to chill in. Only one washing machine and dryer which are only available 4pm-10pm. Kitchen was cramped and not much cutlery and pans etc. worth gettin some cheap kitchen stuff off your own.

Liked: How a hostel should be, homely, spacious, 2 clean kitchens, clean bathrooms, staff manage people to room ratio rather than having it at full capacity, friendly and helpful longterm Statefarm,, longer stay discounts, all round nice and comfortable stay at a bargain price.

Disliked: If you want a party hostel, choose another. Kitchen closes too early (21:30).

Liked: The hostel is like one block from the trainstation. It is not in center of everything but it is easy to walk to False creek and Stanley park from the hostel. I have heard rumors that the security isent that great but I have not noticed anything or anyone stealing anyting. The staff is awesome and very helpful.I whould recommend to stay here.

Disliked: Nothing really.

Liked: It is an old building. Location and cleanliness are not the best yet not the worst either.

Disliked: Building was old. Sheet and room were not clean. A pipe was limy. It needs to be replaced as it will leak. My comments on aside: Certain staff was rude and unhelpful, others were better at communication and quite helpful. I will most likely not going to stay there again.

Liked: Cheap price for the cityHelpful staffFree computer access, if a bit slow at times!Sinks in the rooms!

Disliked: The location wasn't great, either a 15/20 minute walk to downtown or 2 stops on the skytrain.Some of the facilities offered (kitchen and computer) closed inexplicably at 10pmSecurity doesn't normally concern me, but it wasn't in the best part of town and the outer doors didn't lock, my room however had a good lock.

Liked: The staff was super helpful and nice. Especially the chap with the curly hair called Joe. Overall it was a pretty good hostel..clean...good location...etc.

Disliked: Our room was beside the outside smoking area so you could hear people chatting at various times of the night. The outside door was not locked after hours.
