I absolutely enjoyed my stay here. It was my second time at this hostel and I stayed longer. What I really appreciated was the friendliness and honesty among the staff members. The day after I arrived, they had shut down the kitchen for health reasons and they refunded the breakfast money for the rest of the day. Very cooperative and very trustworthy! I would surely recommend this place to anyone looking to explore Vancouver without having to put too much thought to their living arrangements.
