Very intrusive despite being preachy about openess
They didnt allow you to put your sheets as privacy and air barrier citing it as tripping hazzard despite not hitting the floor or the ladder and despite other hostels having these curtains. I ended up having the flew.

Best place in downtown Vancouver
Perfect location right on Granville Street, quick walk to train station, plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants, and the best bar/restaurant is in the hostel itself!

first timers
This was our first time staying in a hostel. The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. This place has A LOT of stairs, so if you have mobility issues or heavy luggage it could be an issue. We had a private room which was adequate and safe. We slept well. There were no noise issues and the shared bathrooms/showers were close and clean. The only that I think one should know is that the location feels a bit rough. Outside there is a lot of night life, homeless, and police presence. Once inside it is much nicer.

8/10 Very good

Affordable, safe, convenient. Easy to get to from the airport, with extra luggage storage area for your checked bag. Restaurant (bar) or shared kitchenette area for food right on the premises. Some background noise from bar and public spaces make it harder for light sleepers but roommates were all quiet
