I've stayed at this hostel a few times and overall I find it to be just ok. The location is good if you have an early bus or train ride. The all women's dorm was very comfortable and despite the hostel being off of a busy road it was very quiet. I do think that the female bathroom and kitchen...

Finding a perfect backpacker hostel feels like winning in a lottery. I did when I experienced the C&N in Vancouver. Friendly and Peaceful, and as a senior single traveller, I felt SAFE. I had a big single room, a huge bed and a tv-set. Access to kitchen, computer and balkony (for smokers). In five minutes walk you'll find train-bus-station and...

Okay... First of all I want to stay, that I really never expect too much from a hostel. I think that as long a minimum level of cleanliness is provided all is fine. However, even after arriving in Vancouver after a 36 hour trip, I was not able to bear the accommodation we were provided in this hotel. I wanted...

Despite the location close to E Hastings (a few sketchy people may be on the street at night), this was a great hostel. Sure, it was a little old and rundown, but I have stayed here twice now and have never had any issues. Recently we had a private room and the price couldn't be beat. The woman running desk...

Hector - night manager very gruff, no social skills. Day time manager very good and helpful. I was in a dorm room and had a very strange room mate; never left the room, never said anything and smelled VERY bad. The place over than room mate was pretty clean.

Its one of the cheaper hostels but its in a crap location there is nothing around & only a couple of blocks away from junkies/homeless ppl. You may as well pay more money to stay in city in a nicer place instead of wasting your money on the skytrain! Only 1 shower for a whole floor of about 25ppl u...

Yep, it's ok. Good location; Chinatown has cheap produce and it's close, TnT for the sushi after 8pm, the train/bus station, etc. Problem is some of the long-term renters(over one year); they want you to follow their rules; in a public place? But it's clean, and the long-termers keep it that way so there yah go.

I have done my fair share of travelling and staying in hostels in Canada and Internationally, and this is by far the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. It was a bit cheaper than other hostels in Vancouver, but it was SO not worth saving a few bucks for. There was a sink in my room and there were...

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.
