Welcome to our hostel

"We have always enjoyed our stay at the hostels. The services and programmes offered meet or exceed our needs. The students really enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the hostel versus a hotel or other accommodation."

HI-Vancouver Downtown is located in a residential neighbourhood and is just a short walk away from the False Creek Ferry. This takes guests across the water to the colourful and busy Granville Island Market - a perfect place to pick up some delicious food supplies to make meals in the hostel's fully-equipped kitchen. The hostel is also a few minutes’ walk from the beautiful English Bay which takes you towards Vancouver's famous Stanley Park. Want to get around and see the sights on two wheels? Then why not hire a mountain bike from the hostel?

There are plenty of activities which are organised for groups by the friendly staff at the hostel. This includes walking tours of the city, ice skating trips (with staff on hand to let you know how to stay upright), a tour of Bowen Island for hiking and for those a little less energetic, the hostel also has a weekly movie night.

HI-Vancouver Downtown is a large building with great facilities and room types for groups of all sizes. Private rooms are available and the 4-bed dorms can accommodate the budget conscious group. All linens, pillows and blankets as well as towels are provided for each guest and there is free breakfast as well as WiFi.

So why not make an enquiry today at the HI-Vancouver Downtown?
