Fine hostel to stay in when travelling without a car. It is in a rough part of town which makes it less interesting to stay if you want to be out after dark. Main complaint is we picked this hostel because we were driving. Turns out free parking was actually the downstairs stores parking and could only be used after five. We were also warned multiple times by hostel employees that our car could be broken into. Also the owner of the lot said they wouldn't feel comfortable leaving their car there after dark. We ended up changing plans and location based on this advice and our own impressions of the neighborhood.

One hostel is on 927 Main Street (will call it 927 further in my review) and the other one 1038 Main Street ( will call it 1038 further in my review. Similarities:You can come back any time in both hostels, they have WiFi, have unpleasant smell of detergent or something, close to Central Station, Chinatown, Police Museum, relatively close to downtown and Stanley Park. Differences:927's kitchen has a fridge, stove, chairs, table, towels, cutlery, some stuff for everybody, left by previous backpackers - oil, salt, pepper, sugar, etc. 1038 - has ONLY a table, a stove and a microwave - no chair, nothing more. (Fridge in the room). 927 is quiet at night, 1038 has a bar the next door so I could not sleep before it closed. 927 kitchen is locked about 10 , 1038's kitchen is open ( you need to take all you need from your fridge in your room though and find a chair somewhere to sit and it). Reception - 927 's was one friendly guy ( Joe) and a grumpy one. 1038's was 2 nice guys, Chris and the one who speak French also. But the third guy ( Mike) was VERY disappointing - just gave me the keys, did not explain anything and yelled at me and was not cooperative at all, when I asked him to take something important from my suitcase, which forgot. Continuing yelling, he grabbed my suitcase from the storage room and said that I can take it to my room, though it was not in my plans. Thanks Chris and ''French'' guy, they changed my opinion about 1038 to better. Winner - 927 ( imo)
