Beds were more comfortable than other HI hostels with thick comforters. You're in the heart of clubbing district with plenty of shops, and cool bar strip Gas Town is only a 7 minute walk away. Definitely bike Stanley park and visit Granville island!

When I arrived in my room, there was a strong cigarette odour from one of the tenant. The staff member whom I talked to about it was very friendly and switched me to a different room without hassle.
