Lonely Planet review
It says 'downtown' but this purpose-built hostel is on a quiet residential West End side street. Popular with older hostelers and families, the dorms are all mercifully small and rates include continental breakfast. Private rooms are available. There's also bike storage, a full kitchen, and TV and games rooms, plus twice-weekly tours from April to November with legendary local guide Erik.
The most 'institutional' of Vancouver's three HI hostels, the front-deskers are especially friendly here. Book well ahead for private rooms.
Our independent authors have visited HI-Vancouver Downtown and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Downtown & West End.
