Clean and friendly. Good location and staff is always friendly.
The toilet paper dispenser was in a inconvenient spot considering where the toilet was in are room hard to maneuver around it. maybe it should be moved under the window.
It is simple but great. You can easily meet people in the facility and enjoy the extra activities they offer every day. To travel alone I would totally recommend this hostel, if you are with family you can also choose the private rooms they offer with private bathroom. It is very simple but again comfortable. The breakfast is good with some variation of breads and fruits, enough to start the day. There are not many tables to sit down but you can eat in he main areas with the folks and make some conversation which can help you meet new people. I will totally book again whenever I need to go back to Vancouver.
I like having the breakfast as it saves having to spend extra money on food....The staff give good guidance on travel which is not easy in BC what with buses, skytrain and Ferries being complicated. I like being able to borrow a hair dryer. The housekeeping is very good. First thing in the morning the toilets are already clean in the bathrooms. All the staff are very professional including those who are apprenticing.
The room was a bit chilly.
staff friend, good location.
in bad need of a face lift, damp smell around hostel. facilities could do with modernising.
