The pillow was very lumpy. The comforter was smelly and needs to be washed more frequently. Also the filling inside the comforter was clumped towards the four corners and was uncomfortable to sleep with. The shower heads in the 4 adjacent washrooms on level 2 were not working properly and the flow of water was an issue. There were leaks in all 4 washrooms which should be looked at. Apart from the above the breakfast was good, and wifi was good when connected but kept disconnecting very often.

Das Zimmer war sehr laut die fenster und lüftung könnten widereinmal eine renovierung erhalten. Richtig Sauber war es auch nicht. Und beim Empfang war alles sehr mühsam könnte aber auch daran gelegen haben das wir nach einem langen flug angekommen sind und erschöpft waren. Der Preis finde ich auch zu vill für das was geboten wird einzig die lage ist der Preis wert sonst nichts

Hi there! We are location in Vancouver's Entertainment District, so we're surrounded by pubs, bars and nightclubs. The hostel is very central to everything, but Vancouver's problem with homelessness is real, and you can see that all over the city. I'm glad to hear that you felt that our security was good! Kind regards, Keith, Manager
