We stayed at the Patricia hotel across tge road and up half a block. There were homeless people camped out in front of the hotel and along the sidewalk. There was a homeless persons tent in from of the hotel. The place may have been nice but there had to be twenty of these folks within ten steps of the entrance.

Anybody who would consider staying here should not be travelling by themselves! Possibly passable if you were eyesight impaired (blind) and had no sense of smell. Why would a dump like this even make it on to your review board? But then, if all you needed was a place to shoot up, try here.........

Well my original review was rejected by tripadvisor (fair enough) so I'll try to mellow it out a bit. The hotel's neighborhood (Hastings and Main) is notorious for certain illegal activities. These activities occur frequently in and around this hotel. I greatly feared for my safety in and around this hotel. The manager is, shall I say, tightly wound. The lobby is covered with notices that the management can enter your room at any time without notice. The rooms are tiny with little more than room for a bed and a crummy little shelf with a broken tv. Now imagine a place ten times worse than this, and you'll have an accurate description of the Hazelwood! It's a slum!

When I read the review below titled "Too Paranoid", I thought someone had gotten there on a really bad day. Well that reviewers experience became my own. I'd booked this hotel six weeks in advance. I went to the hotel a day early to check it out and see if I could check in earlier than their normal time, and was told it would be o.k. So the next morning I show up, and someone barks at me through the intercom to come back at 11. They would let me drop off my bags, they wouldn't even let me inside! When I came back later the desk clerk asked if I worked at a certain place, and simply said "I'm not renting to you. That place is [-] and I'm not going to rent to you." I was speechless- I can humbly say that I am a clean cut, well dressed, well mannered and cultured man who has traveled through almost 30 countries around the world, and this has NEVER happened to me. I could understand some hesitance if I was a wino or crackhead (of which the neighborhood is chock-full). It was especially disappointing as the reason I took a job where I did, was to be close to the hotel! I could have argued my case- that I'm just moving to Vancouver, and despite working as a bartender I don't drink or do drugs EVER, but after being treated like this They don't deserve my time or business, and they don't deserve yours.

They cheat customers. They did not refund my security deposit (half month). I contacted them many times and insisted on refunding me the security deposit but they did not hear, just ignored me. If you stay at this hotel (looks reasonable) but you will loose much more later.

I contacted them by email before arriving in Vancouver. Their reply was reassuring. It sounded like a safe and nice place in a bad neighbourhood. I went to have a look and we agreed I would rent a room for a few months while studying in Vancouver. I would come by with my luggage and they would hold the room for me. NASTY SURPRISE - they wouldn't let me in and through the voicecom said they'd changed their mind and weren't renting to me - no explanation, just a 'get lost'. Was it because I travel with a backpack? was it because I have an expensive folding bike, which they might have thought stolen??? I can't read their paranoid mind. Whatever it was, I was rudely turned away and just left standing there in dangerous downtown eastside with all my luggage. Luckily I still hadn't checked out of my arrival hotel; so I went back there. But their treatment of me was APPALLING and RUDE. There's a difference between keeping addicts out and keeping bona fide travellers/ students out who you previously had made an agreement with. I find it disgusting how they left me standing in the rain with my luggage and simply refused to speak or explain - except through impersonal and barely audible voicecom to 'go away', which I did after realizing the incredible fact of being treated like a bum, which I definitely am not. Don't trust them on their word - they break it.

East Hastings is a problematic neighbouhood brimming with junkies, bums and creatures that seem right out of a 'Resident Evil' movie. But once you're inside the hotel, you will find that the staff is very friendly and that the place is very clean. The washrooms and the showers are cleaned several times a day. For a student or budget traveler, it is difficult to find affordable accomodation in Vancouver's overpriced housing market. Indeed I arrived around the back to school period where it is virtually impossible to find a reasonably priced room, especially if you are male as rooms in Vancouver seem to be rented out exclusively to female students. Hazelwood was a convenient alternative, very affordable and conveniently located near downtown, its only 10 minutes by bus to the Harborfront and only 2 min walk to the scenic China town. Even though neighbourhood looks scary and yucky with its junkies and zombies, it really is not that dangerous because the police patrols very frequently and people who struggle walking erect arenot likely to attack you.
