The HI Vancouver Central is literally in the heart of the city, with easy walking access to all central city areas and public transport at the doorstep. Granville Street is full of theatres, bars, restaurants, clubs and great shopping (if you have the money to buy a pair of $50+ jeans that you could be spending on booze). The dorms are super comfy and cozy and there’s a pretty basic kitchen, movie room and hang out area. The crew who run the joint are incredibly helpful and there are many tours available – some free and some not so free. The atmosphere is not exactly pumping at this hostel, but across the road at the SameSun hostel, they have a bar where all the young backpackers hang out. Just go there to party and come back to sleep soundly.
