Even if you're used to hostels - this one will come as a shocker! Cleanliness seems not to be a priority within these premises - it's horrendously dirty (our room was complete with two pet cockroaches). The bedding was not clean, although made to look as if it had been cleaned. The bedding has suspicious stains on it and should...

Just arrived and wish I could leave as fast. Guy who checked me in so a grump. Heart attack waiting to happen. Looks miserable and so is the vibe around here. Kitchens close 21:30 and he tells you to go to your room or downstairs the cramped tv room. There is no atmosphere here at all. If you can spend...

I've stayed at this hostel a few times and overall I find it to be just ok. The location is good if you have an early bus or train ride. The all women's dorm was very comfortable and despite the hostel being off of a busy road it was very quiet. I do think that the female bathroom and kitchen...

Finding a perfect backpacker hostel feels like winning in a lottery. I did when I experienced the C&N in Vancouver. Friendly and Peaceful, and as a senior single traveller, I felt SAFE. I had a big single room, a huge bed and a tv-set. Access to kitchen, computer and balkony (for smokers). In five minutes walk you'll find train-bus-station and...

Okay... First of all I want to stay, that I really never expect too much from a hostel. I think that as long a minimum level of cleanliness is provided all is fine. However, even after arriving in Vancouver after a 36 hour trip, I was not able to bear the accommodation we were provided in this hotel. I wanted...

Despite the location close to E Hastings (a few sketchy people may be on the street at night), this was a great hostel. Sure, it was a little old and rundown, but I have stayed here twice now and have never had any issues. Recently we had a private room and the price couldn't be beat. The woman running desk...

Hector - night manager very gruff, no social skills. Day time manager very good and helpful. I was in a dorm room and had a very strange room mate; never left the room, never said anything and smelled VERY bad. The place over than room mate was pretty clean.

Yep, it's ok. Good location; Chinatown has cheap produce and it's close, TnT for the sushi after 8pm, the train/bus station, etc. Problem is some of the long-term renters(over one year); they want you to follow their rules; in a public place? But it's clean, and the long-termers keep it that way so there yah go.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
