Hidden Gem when traveling on a budget!
1st Pod Hotel experience and it was great! This hotel is conveniently located across the Richmond Centre Mall and 5-10min walk to Sky Train. Going to Waterfront is 30min via Sky Train. Beats traffic and finding parking when exploring downtown Vancouver. Very clean hotel!

Near the airport, this is the lowest rate I can find. Was a bit worried about quality as per low rate but was pleasantly surprised. Will certainly come back again in my next trip!

Solo traveler stay
This was an easy and affordable option for my trip. I planned to just need a place to sleep because the majority of my trip would be spent adventuring Vancouver BC. Everything was very clean. The girl dorm area was very quiet and peaceful. The bed was overall comfortable. A mild hang up happened with my stay, but the manager credited me $50 just because of the inconvenience, which I’ve never had any hotel do, even when I’ve had larger hiccups at bigger hotels. They were great to me at this hotel and I felt like I had the whole place to myself the whole stay since not many pods were booked at the time.
