Liked: The Urban Hideaway Guesthouse is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Patric is extremely helpful, and truly makes you feel like part of the family where you can feel at home. The rooms are perfectly clean, the kitchen is great with loads of options for breakfast, internet is fast and all guests where friendly. I would highly recommend staying at here. Thank you Patric for making our stay so wonderful.

Liked: nothing, the room was a dungeon with no windows. The twin room was pretty ugly decorated and no sheets.

Disliked: The guy at the front desk was so rude, I've stayed in thousands of places around the world and have never felt so uncomfortable.

Liked: This place have several important pluses:1. Great location downtown Vancouver. Many of the city's main attractions in walking distance, Gastown with its cool bars and restaurants just around the corner.2. With private rooms equipped with comfy beds and nice furniture it feels more like a hotel or B&B rather than a typical hostel. You only need to share the bathroom (there are 2 for 6 rooms, always clean, never needed to wait to take a shower) and kitchen.3. The host, Patrick, really cares about the satisfaction of his customers. The place is super-clean, kitchen is fully equipped (you make your own breakfast from a mountain of quality ingrediences provided by the host), and the atmosphere always friendly. Ask Patrick for tips on where to go and what to see, and follow his advice. You might discover a few interesting places that were not on your schedule!4. The price is right for the service you get.

Liked: Sehr gute, zentrale Unterkunft im Herzen von Vancouver. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und gibt gerne umfangreiche Tipps zu Restaurants und Ausflugszielen in der Umgebung (abseits der üblichen Touristenattraktionen). In der Gemeinschaftsküche kann man nicht nur super kochen, sondern auch Menschen aus allen Teilen der Welt kennenlernen. Insgesamt haben wir uns bei unserem Aufenthalt sehr wohl gefühlt und würden hier definitiv gerne wieder übernachten :)
