Street Map and Route Planning
|Bus:||Transit ($2.75): Go out the front door of Pacific Central Station and walk across the street, where you will see a city bus stop. Catch #C21 Beach. You can get off at Thurlow and then walk up the hill to the hostel (but this is not easy with lots of luggage). The alternative is to ride the C21 all the way to the end of the line, and switch to a #6 Downtown or #C23 Main Street Station, which will come up the hill on Davie Street. Get off at Davie and Thurlow (at the Denny's Restaurant) and walk one block down Thurlow to Burnaby. Taxi (about $8): Grab a taxi at the Taxi Stand outside the station.|
|Parking:||A limited number of outside parking spots are available for an extra charge of CAD$8.50 per night. Parking spots can be reserved at the Front Desk.|
|Location:||We are located in the safe and quiet West End area of Downtown Vancouver, at the intersection of Burnaby Street and Thurlow Street.|
|Rail:||Please refer to the bus station directions above since the Vancouver VIA Rail station is also at Pacific Central Station (Bus Station).|
|Airport:||Public transit: Take the Canada Line train heading to downtown Vancouver. Get off at the Yaletown - Roundhouse stop. Exit to Davie Street. Board the C23 Davie bus westbound and take this bus to Thurlow St. (the stop is by the Shopper's Drug Mart). Cross the street at the lights and go South (down the hill) one block. We are on your right - on the corner of Thurlow and Burnaby Streets. Cost: $9.00 ($7.75 after 6.30pm and weekends). You will need correct change (pay for a 2 zone transfer before boarding the Canada Line). Time: 45 minutes. Taxi ride from the Airport is approximately $30.|

Customer Reviews HI - Vancouver Downtown
|11 May 2013 Joanna, England & Wales||97%|
|Very close to the beach and walikng disrance from Waterfront and Stanley Park. Good choice of organised tours. Internet wasn't working on higher floors. Maybe if TV was closer to the kitchen it would be easier for travellers to mix. Night lamps attached to beds would be good in shared dorms.|
