Eastern (?) tip of Vanc., away from city activity. Parking is pricey & obligatory cost if you have car (not included in room quote). Might try on site meals (@ fixed, limited times). Otherwise, microwave & fridge space (not much) only. UBC campus is huge,...More

Thank you for staying with us. Parking is a premium in Vancouver and most accommodations do charge for overnight parking. There are quite a few food options around campus and our front desk staff would have been more than happy to assist. UBC is a...More

Your check-in staff is great and efficient. When I asked for another towel & wash cloth--no problem. I felt secure. The other guests were considerate and courteous. I loved having the volleyball game outside my room--seriously. I've just gotten "soft".More

Thank you for staying with us. We do have free ultra-high speed Wifi available in the lobby area and all over the campus. We appreciate your feedback and will work to improve our facilities.

Good service. It would have been helpful to have the small shop open for sundries like tea and other drinks when one arrives without any food. Poor signage to find the hostel which required a lot of walking to find it.

Thank you for your question. It usually takes about 30 minutes or so to get from downtown to UBC. Obviously rush hour would be longer. That being said, there is a major bus exchange on campus with lots of buses going to all... More
