Liked: The value for the price and the location.

Disliked: The hotel is not bad but it is not as expected. The room are quite simple and a little bit noisy. The area of the hotel is very close to downtown but there are beggars all around the place.

Liked: Excellent. The only problem is that there is no place to wash your hands after using the toilet. And so you will have to go back to your room to do it. It's slightly inconvenient. Another problem is that the internet connection may not work in the evening -- making the planning for tomorrow's tour slightly difficult. But other than that, it is just really good. If I come back to Vancouver I will definitely choose to stay at St. Clair

Liked: friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, good located in the city

Disliked: the light on the aisle was on all night long. Above the door there was a glas wall so the light shine all night long into my face. Because of that I couldn't sleep.

Liked: Close to everything we wanted to see. Especially close to the Seabus if you're planning on visiting North Vancouver as well.

Disliked: Bathroom and shower facilities were disgusting if you're staying bring shower sandals. Right across from student housing where there are parties every night. Loudest bunk beds EVER! "Kitchen" was located near fire escape doors which were left open. We watched mice coming and going.

Liked: Some of the rooms looked great, and you could be lucky and have a spacious room

Disliked: Our room was very small (they all seemed to be the same price). It is possibly the noisiest place i have ever stayed - night club till 1 in the morning, rubbish collectors 5/6 am in morning. Kitchem facilities limited. We asked to move rooms but no luck.

Liked: The price of a private room is cheap

Disliked: This is a cheap place to stay in Vancouver however there is no common room area which means that everyone congregates in the corridors outside the rooms - not good when you want to get to sleep at night!

17 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Clean bedrooms and good location, but poor security. Front door is open during the day and the staff are not always at reception, and the fire escape doors are always open day and night (which backs onto an alley behind the building). The fire escape door on our level, which was not in good condition, could not be shut easily. Luckily, you can lock your bedroom door.
