Liked: Really great staff - so friendly and knowledgeable about the city.Good location, really short walk to buses/skytrain and main bus station and short walk to downtown/waterfront.Great value for money, we are a couple and stayed in a private room which had everything we needed. Access to kitchens, multiple bathrooms and free internet.Would reccommend to anyone - we were so happy with our stay we booked in for another night when we went back to Vancouver!

05 May 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great location! Within walking distances to local buses, Skytrain & Greyhound. It is said that the Chinatown nearby is not a particularly safe place. But it seems to be O.K. at least before 9pm. The down side of that is my room by the Main St. is noisy all day & night due to traffic. My solution is to use earplugs & to have my head far away from the window.Friendly & hardworking staff. The common areas are cleaned everyday.For improvements, I'd prefer more than one set of power outlets per room.

Evelyne Fischer

24 April 2009 Evelyne would recommend this property

Liked: It's a nice place to stay because the location is close to Downtown Vancouver and it's very affordable. However, you have to get used to the fact, that a lot of people are living, or better staying for a long time there, so you won't find only backpackers. The hostel itself is comfortable, only the lockers don't work properly, but you can give your valuables to the staff.

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.

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.
