Booking again!
It was a very decent time there while attending a convention. Meet lots of cool people at the hostel in the kitchen area and well obviously being above a bar is a problem for those who are light sleepers but for me I slept without a problem and enjoyed the clean linen and all the accommodations they had to offer!

Poor 2,0
Rude manager. Never book. They chatged my card twice. Very tiny small room with 2 people. No ventikkation and window. Pictures are decieving. Book other hostels in downtown never cambie unless your credit card want unneccessary charges and associated risks. Strangers staying with you could be their own people to steal your stuff you never know. Dare to be wise than be sorry and repend later.

Cambie Horror-tel
Outright lies. First of all they charged my credit card 3 days before I even arrived. The room was nothing like advertised, there was no kitchen, no breakfast, no desk or plug-in for computer, so impossible to do my work, which was the reason for having to travel. I was forced to leave after only one of my two nights, and withdraw from my conference, costing me hundreds of dollars
Bert, ca2 night business trip
Fair 4,0
The bed was uncomfortable and had no safety rails on the top bunk. The window was cracked and sticky taped back together
