    Good place for a backpacker.
    Free breakfasts, free wifi, seemed clean enough. Bed was a bit rough to sleep on but it did the job.
    Great location.
    Was noisy if you wanted to get a decent nights sleep. There's a bar underneath.

    This hostel is really ok, rooms are clean, maybe a little small (difficult to get your luggage out of the way), bathroom clean, good hot shower. Lots of things to do, the Beaver Restaurant and pub is always very animated, Granville street is full of pubs, bars and restaurants. Very much young and fun, the perfect place to be on New Year's eve!! And, as for me, a very good breakfast!!

    Service great, rooms and bathrooms clean, great location. Breakfast is fantastic, I filled up and didn't need lunch. There are activities every day including walking tours of the city.

    Excellent hostel, rooms cleaned everyday, bathrooms checked hourly. Hot water always available for showers, hairdryer, good free breakfast that now included bagels. Staff are really helpful, rooms are safe, some of the lockers are broken but most are ok. They change the password to get upstairs everyday to make it extra safe. Organised trips available, good bar, meal deal everyday in the bar for under $5. Weekly and monthly deals available.

    Heading out today to Vancouver and the west coast of the U.S. on sort of my first time traveling solo, I did travel to Singapore alone but I was meeting someone there. Hence the "sort of". I had thought it was an omen when the plane flying me out here switched and I was moved into a window seat(with no window) that's just the worst of both worlds. …

    I LEFT NEW ZEALAND! Holey **** - I left all my family, friends, my dog and cat and moved to Canada.

    Arriving in Vancouver I was completely expecting the ground to be two ft deep in snow. But no. It wasn't even that cold.

    I was staying in Van for three nights to get my bank account, phone and working information sorted out before …

    After the mission of getting all our bags to Hong Kong airport on the bus, and a 13 hour flight with absolutely zero sleep, we were hoping we would breeze through customs and immigration. This was unfortunately not the case. Coming in as a tourist on a 1 way ticket proved to be a bit of an issue. Having the working holiday visa didn't prove helpful …

    Before we got to Vancouver, we stayed 3 nights in Seattle, however, these days were all about organising our backpacks, sending parcels back home, getting a hair cut and a manicure & pedicure. We weren't in the mood to check out the city and were kind of exhausted from all the driving we'd done the last couple of days. So after our short stay …
