Liked: I thank the Lord Jesus Christ, I had a very positive experience at C&N Backpackers. This is a hostel so the amenities are modest but the service and staff were quite excellent. I appreciated their professionalism and hard work. I felt safe in the hostel and environs. The neighbourhood is one of extremes of wealth and poverty, so use wise judgement in going about. -John 316

04 September 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel is very clean (bathrooms, rooms, kitchen). The two-person private room is very good value and it comes with a sink, mini fridge and tv. The location is close to chinatown/skytrain/science world, but not that great as there are some homeless people around the area. The hostel itself seems very safe.Free internet is nice too, although there is only 1 computer. Really friendly staff.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Customer review

21 August 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very helpful staff. However on the second floor, it was VERY hot and there wasn't a fan provided. So literally just baked in our room all night. We tried opening the window but were right next to the smokers deck outside that with an open window came lots of fumes. But the room was very nice. I would recommend this hostel, but perhaps also recommend you bring a way to stay cool, if visiting in the summer.
