spare day
Had a day to kill between flights, UBC is a great place to walk and coffee. Could do with some gaskets on doors and noise abatement.

You get what you pay for.
This hostel was fine for the cost. I had to stay 6 nights, 3 nights each time so wanted something very economical and this was it. The price was good, the building and amenities were fine, definitely not luxury but you get what you pay for.

Good 6.0
Inexpensive and basic
The hostel is basic and has a room with a shared bathroom. I was there for 2 lots of 3 days in July and it was an inexpensive way of spending 6 nights in Vancouver.
Yvonne, us3 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
The staff were very friendly. They helped me out with just about everything. I needed a bus route to get to a train station, a staff member Carol helped me out and was very polite about everything. The area was very quiet and peaceful. Conveniently located and bus routes can take you downtown easily. Very close to hiking trails at the Pacific Spirit Regional Park. I enjoyed my stay here very much.

Very Good 8.0
Better than expected for the money!
Better than what you would expect for the price. The rooms are clean and the shared bathrooms were spotless. The beds were very stiff so be prepared if you like a soft bed. The UBC campus is beautiful and relatively easy to get downtown via a number of busses.

Very Good 8.0
Clean and simple
Perfect for conference travel at UBC! Although, you do have to pay extra for wifi and will need flip flops for the community showers... :) Still the cleanest "hostel" (they are dorms!!) I've ever stayed in.
