Nice hostel close to it all

Pros: Location, the cheap and decent food from the pub below, the free coffee and muffin with the cafe next door for breakfast.
Cons: Improvements were ongoing. Bathrooms recently renovated and he rooms are gettin the same treatment shortly
Location wise the Cambie is brilliant. I was able to get around all of Vancouver easily. Rooms are basic but clean and the beds are comfortable enough. Can get a little noisy when the barks busy down stairs but if your tired enough you'll sleep through anything.
