    Great bar downstairs and the rooms far enough away not to be disturbed on the first night of jet lag. Excellent friendly staff!!

    Rooms were a bit warm, but fans provided made it comfortable enough to sleep.

    Great breakfast that's included, close to nightlife and shops, lockers in rooms.

    Not a big deal but swipe cards would be easier to use then keys, sometimes the room door was a bit hard to open.

    Perfect location allowing you to visit the city centre without the need of any kind of transportation. Plenty of good bars and restaurants nearby. Friendly atmosphere.

    Breakfast is as much as you can eat for the same price. It's ok if your stay there for 1-2 days. However, there are few options, so it becomes quite boring.

    Free breakfast. They serve hot and delicious bagels and muffins. These are much more than I expected to meals are named "free".

    Wi-fi connectivity was sometimes bad.

    location was convenient, right on bus line, close to light train and not far from amtrak. The boys helped carry my bags up and down the 3 flights of stairs.

    they put me in a room with all boys, I was the only girl and made it clear there was no option. The room was about 95 degrees and we all slept quite restlessly and sweaty. Our particular room did not have any airflow coming through the window as outside walls blocked any flow of air coming in.

    good location, and friendly staffs. easy to go around the city.

    I had tree booking at this hostel in one week. first night when I got there they said they didn't have my booking so I had to stay some where else which is more expensive. the second booking was no problem but the room I stayed had no wifi at all,(room 111) and it was super hot, they have small fans for every bed but definitely not help at all, third time I was there was good I had wifi in my room.(109) and the room wasn't too hot.

    Super friendly and helpful staff, the common areas were pretty good and the free breakfast is a great addition.

    The wifi didnt reach the rooms, no elevator to take heavy bags up the stairs, the common areas were usually packed and no seating available, inconsiderate roommates

    - The artsiness of the hotel. Very creative design - The atmosphere really caters to travellers who are visiting for the first time - The staff was fantastic! - The breakfast was good - The on site facilities (ie. the bar/lounge) was convenient - The location was great.

    - The cramped feeling of sharing a room with strangers (although, that basically comes with the territory when staying at a hostel) - The lack of privacy. There's no where to really just "be alone" - Showers could be cleaner/updated

    The location is excellent! Located in downtown near to restaurants, pubs, skytrain, bus stops. If you want, you are able to visit a lot of sightseeing by walking. The free breakfast is simple but pretty good.

    Rooms are small, especially when compared to Samesun Banff and Kelowna. As well, since the rooms are small and crowded, it get hot really quickly, which makes it uncomfortable.

    I thought this place was excellent. Had been recommended to me and I booked on the back of that, wasn't disappointed. The staff were excellent, helpful, knowledgeable. Their enthusiasm rubbed off on me. Breakfast was good and, unlike other places I have stayed, was available before the "start" time - you would just miss out on the freshly baked bagels and buns. Lots of activities organised by the hostel. Very sociable and friendly place, and the staff are on the ball. They understand backpacker needs.

    Only gripe was air com u it's were. to great when it was hot, but each bed has a fan so you can create a draught to help keep you cooler.
