Liked: It's very clean and comfortable. I stayed in the shared dome and it's fun meeting the new people. This was the first time I've ever stayed in a hostel. Good experience!

Disliked: The street light was bright and it would be nice if there was a blind.

City break, Sightseeing & culture

Liked: The hostel is right in the middle of Vancouver and so well-placed for sightseeing. We were given good advice about places to visit and area to eat in. Breakfast is a communal experience and is a good opportunity to meet up with other travellers, which is fun. The hostel cats are also very welcoming!

Disliked: Inevitably, because it is in the middle of the city there is some road noise at night.

Liked: Owner is fantastic, incredibly helpful. Great resource for learning about what's happening and where to go.

Disliked: Depending on which room you're in, street noise can be an issue. But then again, you're in downtown Vancouver... what do you expect?
