Decent hostel, decent location
This hostel is located a few blocks south of Vancouver City Centre Skytrain station in the central part of Vancouver. It's a fairly large hostel in an older building on one of Vancouver's main streets. Despite that, my room facing the main street was fairly quiet with the typical urban noises that you'd expect even on Friday/Saturday nights (the area seemed like a bit of a seedy clubbing area but not dangerous). The six bed dorm that I stayed in was pod-style with thick plywood creating some privacy; not quite Japanese capsule hotel, but similar. The hostel has one daily organised activity that you can join, from winter sports on Cypress Mountain to a walking tour of Granville Market to hiking in Lynn Valley. I didn't take part but that seemed like the way to meet others if that was your thing. Washrooms were fairly clean and usable (6 toilets and 6 showers per floor, separated from each other, decent water pressure and enough hot water). There's a bar downstairs that serves craft beer (HH from 4PM for $4/16oz) which was decent. Breakfast from 7:30-9:30 was also served here, with the typical backpacker fare (bread, cereal, milk) but with the added bonus of fruit(!). There's also a little lounge on the 2nd floor, which while a bit sterile and anti-social, could probably be activated depending on who's there at the time. There didn't seem to be any rules or hangups about buying your own beer and drinking there instead of at the bar. Overall, decent. Would stay again.

Best hostel I've visited.
Excellent hostel. Far exceeded my expectations of cleanliness and amenities. Great value for money. Friendly and respectable staff and clientele. This is not the scummy hostel you see overseas.
