HI-Vancouver Central

I guess I should've paid more attention to the description of this hostel on here, as it came as a nasty surprise that the (tiny) kitchen didn't include a stove. Other than that this place was okay; good atmosphere, pretty decent breakfast (though most of the time you'll have to eat it standing).

About HI-Vancouver Central

Free Wireless: We heard your comments and in January 2014 we installed a fantastic new wireless system. Signal strength in rooms is great, speed is 5x faster than before, and we've doubled our bandwidth!

Free all-you-can-eat breakfast! Bagels and cream cheese, cereals, muffins, scones, toast, fruit, juice, milk, tea and coffee, served every day from 8 - 10am. It's at least a $5 value, and we know you've got better places to spend that money - like on beer!

Private bathrooms! Every bathroom in our hostel is a private bathroom.

**Taxes not included. Rates quoted are for HI members. Non-members may purchase a membership at check-in or pay a 10% non-member surcharge.**

Smack dab in the middle of Granville Street's pub and club district, we're one of the newest Vancouver hostels -- and if you're angling for access to all the partying and good times you could want, without compromising on security, comfort, and cleanliness, then we're where you want to be!

Our in-the-thick-of-it location makes for the perfect home base while you explore Vancouver. Our hostel has awesome daily tours that'll have you hanging out with travellers from all over the world while you teeter across the Capilano Suspension Bridge or sip a pint on one of our pub crawls.

If you're looking for the fun of a hostel, but still want privacy, you'll love our ensuite private rooms (cable TV included!) and our two-bed dorms. These are our most popular room types, so make sure to book in advance!

A quick word about our kitchen -- our previous guests have asked (and we listened!) that we mention ahead that our cooking facilities include only microwaves, toasters and kettles. If you're looking to cook up a feast, we've got two other hostels in Vancouver (Downtown and Jericho Beach) with really impressive kitchens.

We know you care about security, too, and that's why you'll find your own backpack-sized locker in your dorm. When you don't have to worry about your stuff, you can really start enjoying yourself.

So that's our story: fun, secure, comfortable, clean, and can we just put in one more plug for the Granville Street nightlife?

We can't wait to meet you!

Other than that this place was okay; good atmosphere, pretty decent breakfast (though most of the time you'll have to eat it standing). Its location on Granville is useful - within easy walking distance of the Davie Street restaurants as well as the skytrain.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I will not recommend this hostel for one single reason but a very important one to my eyes...I slept in a 4 men dormbed and one of the roommates during the week I stayed there was a bum and he stank like hell...The reception did not seem very concerned by his smell and that it would bother (weak word) the others sleeping in the same room...it was unbearable...staff not particularly pleasant...good location...noisy street at night (drunk people yelling, etc...)

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Stayed in a private room with en suite and TV. Basically it was like staying in a average quality hotel but for a lot less money. If I was being very picky I would stay the only problem was the room wasn't cleaned daily and it didn't have a bar.

But lets make no mistake, it's still the best hostile I've ever stayed in.
