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.

This is the most popular hostel in Vancouver. Rooms are small but you meet tons of cool people. The bar downstairs is a nice touch for a quick drink. Party location so be ready for it to be loud.

We liked how the dorm rooms were split into 4 bunk beds with partitions and each bed had a large locker. The hostel has a large kitchen and seating area and it is very close to Jericho beach which was nice.
