Lonely Planet review

Located across from the Samesun, this warren-like hostel is more of a party joint than its HI Downtown sibling. Some of the benefits of its past hotel incarnation remain, such as air-conditioning and small dorms. There are dozens of two-bed dorms (some with ensuite) for privacy fans. Snag a back room to avoid Granville St noise issues.

Kitchen facilities are limited to microwaves and toasters but a continental breakfast is included. There's a brimming roster of social activities, including regular sightseeing tours. Locationwise, this hostel is within staggering distance of the Granville Strip's bars and clubs.

Our independent authors have visited HI Vancouver Central and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Downtown & West End.
