Would recommend, just get a lock for your stuff
The room i stayed in was cute in the sense that it was like a camp dorm. The view out the window looked over a bit of the alley and the surrounding southeastern side of downtown. The people there were really nice and approachable, and if you went to get a beer during happy hour the bartender was great to talk to. The location was extremely accessible to 2 skytrain stations, a number of shaw bike racks, and the aquabusses to Granville Island or Lonsdale if you were willing to walk about 10 minutes.

Great hostel
Great customer service. Good option for budget conscious travelers, free breakfast included is tasty & healthy. The staff offer tours, and information on great deals and local businesses. There is always good music playing in the common areas, and there is a great pub onsite (amazing beer menu). I would stay here again.

Decent Hostel
Stayed for 5 nights, the staff were friendly, the bar had good deals on at happy hour and decent beer. Shower was decent and the bed was too.

Great location, but hard to sleep
It was very loud. We were right across the bathrooms which was convenient, but since there's cut out for a fan above the door all the noises and sometimes smells come through. The window side isn't much better, you can pretty clearly hear the outside. It sounded like a pretty loud and probably drunken dispute. Breakfast was kind of nice with great cut up fruit and jam. The bread and bagels seemed pretty good quality. The coffee and juice we did not like and we were wishing for some protein or healthier option.

Overall a good hostel
All the staff were friendly bad one, I think her name was Mel(?), she was in a cropped blue staff T-shirt with the sleeveless top who was pretty rude at breakfast on all the days I stayed there. Previous customers socks and other rubbish were left in the pods. Other than that the atmosphere and location of the hostel was great and breakfast provided was the best I’ve had at any hostel
