    Near the airport, this is the lowest rate I can find. Was a bit worried about quality as per low rate but was pleasantly surprised. Will certainly come back again in my next trip!

    Well done

    Pleasantly surprised with this place. Neat concept for those travelling on a budget or for those where a room is unnecesary. Place was very clean and service attentive. Well done!

    Solo traveler stay

    This was an easy and affordable option for my trip. I planned to just need a place to sleep because the majority of my trip would be spent adventuring Vancouver BC. Everything was very clean. The girl dorm area was very quiet and peaceful. The bed was overall comfortable. A mild hang up happened with my stay, but the manager credited me $50 just because of the inconvenience, which I’ve never had any hotel do, even when I’ve had larger hiccups at bigger hotels. They were great to me at this hotel and I felt like I had the whole place to myself the whole stay since not many pods were booked at the time.

    Expensive for what you get, the pods are very claustrophobic and no real mattress, so is like sleeping on the floor, very hard. Will not go back.

    Everyone was extremely friendly. The only negative was I wish I could get a wash cloth with the towel.
