10/10 Exceptional

Great to meet people and very affordable
Awesome location in the heart of Downtown Vancouver. Great for just being able to meet new people. They ran free daily tours to various sites (pay only for transport) and Donny our guide was awesome. Breakfast ok but good if you don’t want to to venture out and just want a coffee and something light. Bathrooms are reasonably clean. Beds are a bit squeaky and pillow a bit small. But dorm room itself was fine and had more space than other places I’ve stayed. Front desk staff were all good. Bar downstairs also held a trivia and bingo events midweek so another good opportunity to have some drinks and socialise. Being able to store luggage after checkout was very convenient for my evening flight.

It’s good for solo travellers to meet with people who are travelling. Great service, closer to a lot of things in downtown Vancouver, with Granville island you can take the bus. Overall the Hostel was amazing with breakfast and meet new people.

Very intrusive despite being preachy about openess
They didnt allow you to put your sheets as privacy and air barrier citing it as tripping hazzard despite not hitting the floor or the ladder and despite other hostels having these curtains. I ended up having the flew.
