    Hot room. Loud room, noisy people at the pub. Everything else you need you need to pay like towe

    Stayed 2 nights in Aug. 2019


    It is a classic 1900 vintage hotel in Gastown—the original Vancouver. It is run down but clean and the service was good. A cheap place for young travellers to stay in a very expensive city.

    Noisy but Nice

    The hostel is directly above a busy bar. I stayed on a Saturday night and it was REALLY noisy. The music didn’t get turned off until 2am and there’s no way to sleep through it. The room and bathroom were clean tho and the staff friendly. This was my first time in a hostel so my expectations were mixed. It is really weird sleeping in the same room with three strangers. There was one girl there when I arrived on her computer that had towels around her bed for privacy. I got back from the show I went to see at midnight and then a couple arrived shortly after that. Everyone was really quiet. This is a great place to stay if you need a central location and a bed for the night. Just remember to bring some earplugs!
