    Stayed here for 2 nights in a double room in the second floor. The HI Downtown Hostel is a run down place with no atmosphere on it. The washrooms are cleaned once daily, so u won't find a clean toilet after 11am. I complained the...More

    I stayed there 11.23.14 - 11.27.14. They send you an email confirmation, and at the bottom of the email are directions from how to get to the hostel from the airport. The directions are as clear as day, and I got there with no issues....More

    I stayed at the HI Downtown about one week. I booked a bed in a 4-bed female dorm. The room was really tiny and with all the suitcases the room was really packed and kind of uncomfortable. Breakfast was included and had a lot of...More

    West End
    A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
    verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
    Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
    paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
    perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
    languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
    Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
    take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
