I stayed here in Jan 2011 because it was the cheapest hostel in Vancouver. To be honest for only $20 a night it was pretty good but if I had paid any more I would have been very disappointed. The worst part of it are the rooms. The bunks are noisey and the rooms are dirty but ill give a...

My girlfriend wasn't sure about staying here, but because we were trying to save money and wanted an hostel with a kitchen I persuaded her to stay here. At first the hostel seems ok, the communal area when we first arrive up the stairs seemed good, the receptionist gave us loads of useful information about Vancouver and I thought my...

Okay let me tell you first that my boyfriend and I are young people who arnt really picky and understand that you get what you pay for so we knew the place wasnt gonna be highclass, or very attractive but what we didnt want to pay for is bed bugs. and the hotel is constantly trying to fight them. they...

I stayed in this hostel for 3 weeks and it was a pretty easy stay. The staff are friendly and very helpful with any questions, the hostel was always clean and being cleaned. If you are a walker like I am, it only takes 20min to get to Downtown Granville st and 25min to Davie st, there are also buses...

We booked a private room, and it was a great place for what we needed. What we needed was a safe place to store our stuff during the day & to sleep at night, and a kitchen to cook some food at night. The location is good and bad, the good that it is a 5 minute walk from the...

We booked online, website looked fine and there aren't too many budget options in Vancouver. However, we checked out first thing and moved into a hotel after having spent the night in a tiny, cell-like room, opposite the massive washing machines. The sink was disgusting, full of rust, bunk bed mattresses just dusty (the lower bed had to face the...

I payed $60 PER NIGHT (yes for a backpackers) for two nights at C & N Backpackers due to the Olympics. There was literally NO VACANCY anywhere in the city. Its actually above the most derelict pub I have ever seen (you know the one with homeless people out the front and the only ppl in the pub are drugo's...

We stayed here during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic games, and were extremely unsatisfied with our stay... Firstly we booked a private room with queen bed, only to be given a jail-cell like room with two sets of bunk beds, and no TV (as promised). This was disappointing considering we paid $170 a night for a dive...The mattresses were shocking,...

Thankfully we only stayed here one night,that was more than enough. The only positive thing I can say about this place is that the bathrooms were very clean and its near the bus station. Our room was freezing cold and no heat. Outside the traffic on the main road went right by the place and there was no insulation. It...

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.
