Liked: Great place. I came in with few expectations but I was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to meet people as a solo traveler. The location was great, the breakfast was fantastic and the staff were lovely.

Disliked: The first two nights (a week ago), I was placed in a room by the main road which made it slightly challenging to sleep at night.

Liked: Security. Lounge area. Free wifi.

Disliked: Dorms are far too small. Lockers are tiny, there's no way you can fit anything of note inside them. No air con in the rooms. Some of the rooms back on to the streets which can be extremely noisy. There is a plug by each bed... but only if you have your own extension cable.

Liked: Excellent location. Literally couldn't be in a better spot in Vancouver. All staff have most information you could ask for available to them. Special mention for the dude who works the reception on a morning - incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Seems genuinely interested in talking to guests and in offering advice and tips. A credit to an all round great hostel.

Disliked: WiFi was a bit sketchy anywhere above the 2nd floor, not a big deal.
