    I stayed 3 months in the hostel. At the first sight it didn't seem a nice place. But hold on, sometimes you should give it a second try and you might find out the beauty underneath the surface. Enjoy your stay!

    A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
    stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of

    The hostel is sorry for not be so clean , but we hire guest for cleaning and many of them and they say that this hostel is much cleaner than other apartment or house were travelers live, and they are very messy them self ,but the hostel is worth the fun the free beer, the sex and love ,friendly place with musical instruments instead of WiFi and the old charm of the house ok we will hire you at $30 per hour please do good job
