    location was excellent, close to transit stations and food options

    WiFi performance was spotty and unreliable if not downstairs in reception area, where there was not a suitable place for computer use. My partner felt the place may not have been clean

    Excellent location, value for money, very clean cosy and comfortable.Also good breakfast buffet spread though have to be early as the bread toasters are limited and slow

    The wifi is considerably slower in rooms and this have to be at lounge to get stringer signal. Could be due to being placed in the highest floor at the back of the hostel

    Breakfast was sufficient. Nothing fancy, but filling and easy. Location was great if you didn't have a car as it was in the center of the city close to public transportation.

    It was a little expensive for a hostel.

    Nice staff and good common facilities, good and free breakfast, cheapest option I found in downtown Vancouver with private bathroom, good location with walking distance to everything.

    One of the beds was terrrible. Room was very old but compared to summer prices in Vancouver it was ok value.

    Great location, facilities and value for money. Very clean, much better than most hostels out there. Sheets and towels regularly replaced. No bedbugs or such things. Nice free breakfast (fruits, bagels, cereal, cream cheese, milk, coffee and a lot of other stuff). Look for their daily events like tours, bbq etc; great!

    The only thing I did not like is the noise. The hostel lies in a very, very noisy district with a lot of clubs etc. Earplugs completely solve the problem though. Bring a pair with you!

    Although our stay in HI Vancouver is now 4 weeks behind us, we both haven't found any positive point that we could mention here. If all the negative points don't matter for you : you are near public transports and you are quick in plain downtown ...

    We are used to HI Hostels, and this is by far the poorest HI we saw during the last 15 years ! The pictures on the Booking.com Website do not reflect reality : furniture need to be replaced (les canapés sont pleins de trous et semblent avoir au moins 15 ans). The "kitchen" has 4 tables and 10 chairs, we think this does not need to be explained when you know there are 80 rooms ... breakfast had all morning 1 kinds of bagels, 2 kinds of bread and no diversity. Compared to European Standards on HI, the paid price (around 300 CA$ for 3 nights) is too high. If HI Vancouver has a *** rating; in Europe, you pay 25 € per person and night and you are in a 8-star-hotel ! Furthermore, when we arrived, the towels were wet and were not replaced. Finally, the Hostel is located in plain downtown, so be prepared to have drug addicts, homeless people, ... in the direct surrounding of the hostel.

    Decent breakfast(bagels, muffins, cereal, bread, scones, milk, oj, coffee, tea). Friendly staff. Elevator (slow, but at least they have one). Staff kept washrooms and common areas clean. Baggage storage. Towels, sheets, and blanket provided. Lockers in the room, but bring your own lock. They are nice about letting you use the facilities before you've checked in and after you've already checked out. Good location for getting around and visiting. Easy to get to from YVR.

    It was a bit hot and stuffy. For light sleepers it can be rough having fan or AC on...but that beats the stuffiness. Wi-fi was ok, but there were issues sometimes. Bring flip flops for the shower and room as it's not always in perfect condition, but that's to be expected as it is a hostel with shared spaces.

    It's nice to stay for 2 or 3 nights. It's very central, you have all you need and the things are clean

    I wouldn't recommend it to families or for longer stays. The rooms are quite narrow and you haven't lots of space.

    It's easy to circle around the downtown starting from the Hi Vancouver Central because of its excellent location. The staff is helpful and friendly and the breakfast is good!

    It is noisy outside at night.

    We liked the price,we liked the fact that we managed to get big discounts on Hop on Hop off bus and capilano bridge,the hotel was close to everything and clean

    We did not like that there was no phone in the room en that in certain ptivate rooms the toilet is so squeezed between the bathtub and the wall that our elbows hit the wall and the kitchen did not look clean,but the breakfast was great

    Location was amazing, friendly staff, so many activities to do while there, great areas to chill and relax. I was in a 2 bed dorm and there was plenty of room which was great. Would stay again.

    Few dramas with an organised activity. Internet was a bit poor on the higher levels

    Good price. friendsly staff. Good rules in the hostel.. After 11pm people who do not stay in the hotel cannot enter. Free towels and sheets for bed. Breakfast was really good! I loved bagles and muffins. Also activities are awesome. I recommand erik's tour on Tues and Fri, also som pub and club nights. They are perfect if you are traveling alone.

    Kitchen or dining room was so small.. I had to go back to my room with breakfast or wait for seats to be available. Other than this everything was good :-)

    Very friendly staff on arrival and had places to store luggage and a bike I had. I had a private room which was v comfortable and clean with bed all made up and ready. The breakfast is excellent although be prepared for queues as the kitchen is very small. However there is a tv room and lounge room to sit in as well which is great. One of the better hostels I've stayed in - never had an issue finding an available shower on the morning. Would recommend.

    No real downsides apart from the size of the kitchen really!

    Besides,the excellent,choices of breakfast.It's very convenient to get any where I needed to go like the Rogers center,to the water bay area walking trail,stores,restaurants ect....the staff was friendly....The room I stayed in was very similar to the one HI I know in Penticton.The standard consistency of a franchise is important to me,and the HI so far lives up to these standards. So thank You for being a good host and I'll be back on one of my next trips to Vancouver.

    The free breakfast was good. The common room in the 2nd floor. Air condition was good.

    A bit expensive as a hostel.
