Touchdown in Vancouver

A travel blog entry by allanamue


No sleep for us but made it safely to Vancouver at 7.30am PST. Spent 2 hrs getting through baggage and sorting out working Visa. Little bit nervous lining up, but got accepted!! Was a breeze.

    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!!

    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.
