Excelente Hostel. Todos os funcionários são incríveis e atenciosos. Extremamente seguro e tranquilo. Não tem bagunça ou barulheira. Aqueles que querem sossego conseguem relaxar tranquilamente. Limpeza perfeita. Banheiros sempre limpos e cheirando muito bem. Nota 10!

I arrived at midnight and the the woman at the front desk was really nice and friendly. The next morning I went to the front desk again to ask how much time I need to go to the Tsawassen ferry terminal and they were really impatient, told me I need more than 2 1/2 hours and seemed like being really annoyed. At the end their answer was totally wrong, less then 90 minutes.
