Liked: Breakfast is best! And I can use refrigerator for free. And they served towels for free. And given some coupons are useful to visit attractions around here.

Liked: I really liked the location of the hostel and that there were several bathrooms available on our floor so we never had to wait for one. Also, the fact that they were separate was nice.

Disliked: It seemed a little dirty especially the bathrooms but that was a minor concern.

Liked: This place is perfect. Central Location. I have travelled to 71 countries and stayed in many many hostels, this place has the best breakfast hands down compared to anywhere I have stayed, Bagels, Cereal, Fruit, Muffins, Scones, Orange Juice etc. There are 4 bathrooms on each floor with showers that felt like being back at home. If you're coming to Vancouver this is exactly where you should stay.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Hostel rooms are nice, beds comfortable and there was a sink in the room which was handy for brushing of teeth! I chose the hi because I wanted a quiet night in and made the right choice. Breakfast was good.

Disliked: Some of the staff were definitely not as friendly/eager to help as I have experienced on average at other hostels. Not a very social hostel- if you would rather socialise than have a nice bed definitely go to the samesun across the road

Liked: It's pretty standard for a hostel. Building looks a little run down, but its all clean and the beds are comfortable. Free breakfast was good and the location is central for Downtown Vancouver

Disliked: It's located on a poor section of Granville St. If you want to hit the bars and don't mind the what the area is like, stay here. If you want to stay somewhere in a calmer area but still near shops, bars & restaurants, go for HI's Downtown hostel - better facilities and better location if you don't want bars literally at the door.
