Easy stay in Vancouver.
Hotel is in a good position. They allowed us to do cheap clothes washing after 3pm. We were in room and 18 that had the showers and toilets very handy. Each floor had its own showers and toilets.

Perfect down town accessibility
This hostel is centrally located in downtown, which gave us great bike and walking access to everything. Our room was hot and there was a homeless camp set up in the alley and the guy would have bouts of anger and start kicking his bags or bottle and cans. There is also a live music venue nearby so be prepared to hear the music loud and clear. Getting our bikes in the room on the daily was difficult too, but we made it happen. Would recommend and would stay here again based on the location and charm of the historic building.

It is necessary for your stays be told about the facilities available. It will be especially helpful that visitors be told about controlling heat or cold in the rooms.
