Bed lamps and an extra elevator are missing. The location is great as well as the breakfast. The friendly and smiling front desk is excellent. The hostel activities as the free walking tours are very good as well as the guide Erik.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us. Glad to hear you found the staff friendly and enjoyed our tours and activities! Bed lamps are on our list for improvements this winter, but an extra elevator, unfortunately, is not. The building would have to be torn down to put in an extra elevator, so it's just not in the cards for us. However, I'm happy to say that we have one, functional, safe elevator, even if it is a little bit slower than we'd like sometimes :) Kind regards, Keith, Manager

Great hostel, but the outside noise at night (Saturday) was substantial. Also, kitchen and common areas where undersized for the number of guests. I also stayed at the HI Downtown Hostel and found the neighborhood and amenities more enjoyable.

Thank you for your comments. Our convenient location (right in the middle of Vancouver's Entertainment district, so we're surrounded by pubs and bars, restaurants and shops) means that we're sometimes a bit noisier than other locations. I agree that our Downtown location (on a quiet side street) is perfect for those looking for a quieter, more low-key stay, and that hostel has better cooking facilities than we do, and that's an advantage, too. Kind regards, Keith, Manager

El edificio está muy viejo y poco cuidado. La cocina es muy pequeña y no muy limpia. El baño que estaba más cerca de mi habitación tenía una bañera que estaba sucia y oxidada. El resto de baños de la planta estaban más limpios pero en algunos no funcionaba bien el grifo de la ducha. Las habitaciones tenían un olor raro, como a humedad.
