          Good overall. Close to our daughter & everything we did & saw. Better & less expensive than hotel. No elevator in residence. Screens needed on windows so you can keep them open at night to get air movement in room when it's hot out.

          Hello: I am sorry to say that I wrote a review of this location and I was thinking of another hostel at the time, that I had just stayed at. The review I gave was NOT intended for the pacific spirit hostel. Please delete the review titled: "stay if you must". Thanks.
