Great place to meet people, have low expectations
OK well for the price what do you really expect. On the flip side it is in a good location, close to wherever you want to go as in Gastown, Yaletown even Granville area and waterfront. The place isn't clean, but good for a one night stay and you meet people right away.

Bunk Beds! Great Location! Not So Nice bathroom!
Convenient location and cheap price. Best to avoid using the washroom there though.

Decent for what you pay
Decent place for a night to crash. Wasn't a clean place, but you pay for what it's worth.

Ok in a pinch
Upon arrival I was informed that this hostel was not deemed "child friendly". I was supposed to be booked at the sister hostel across the street. Due to the confusion, I was given a larger room as my son and I traveled from the Yukon to attend the Shania Twain concert and there were no other rooms available anywhere. The front desk staff was amazing and kept in touch with us during our 2 day stay, to make sure everything was going well for us during our stay. Our tv did not work and they did not replace it before we left, but that was not an issue for us. The showers were a bit sketchy, but we made due. The overall cleanliness of the bathrooms and hostel was not great, but the beds were clean and so was the sink in our room - which were the most important things to me. For the price and overall circumstance, it was not a bad stay. I felt safe and was not really concerned about the other "issues" with the accommodation. For someone who needs a place to crash and is on a strict budget, it may be acceptable. I would not stay there long term, but it served the purpose for our trip. The best part of our stay was that we were able to have comfortable beds! I have chronic pain issues, and even in expensive hotels do not get a good nights rest due to uncomfortable "new" beds. These beds were old but we managed to get 2 comfy ones. I even had a perfect pillow!
