The Hostel is locate din the heart of Downtown, walkingdistances to major transportation and Attractions in Vancouver. Calendar of events going on all week and helpful staff always there to help you out. I had a great time in Vancouver and thanks to the cambie for providing majority of this good time.
I would love to go back and see what the new management team is doing, because what I have seen is good, but there is a very nice project starting at the both locations and will be a blast to go back there and see the cambie on the top of the Backpacker's Market in Vancity.
Go and see yourself the party, happy and fun atmosphere at The Cambie Gastown.
The location of this hostel is perfect. There are Skytrain station, bus station and ordinary train station just 5-minute-walk away. Shopping malls such as Sears and Pacific Centre are also nearby. You can also get to the famous Stanley Park by foot in 10 minutes.
The price is good. If you stay longer than 7 days, you can get a weekly rate, which is cheaper. They provide muffins and coffe in the morning. Actually coffe is always available. There are also quite a few useful maps and brochures at the frontdesk. For backpackers, you'll find this is the place.
One drawback is that if you are in the rooms facing the street, you'll hear some noisy.
In spite of that, Cambie is a good choice for people who want to save money and enjoy the Vancouver downtown.
Don't stay here if it is the last place left in Vancouver - sleep in the street - it would certainly be much cleaner. My boyfriend and I have been travelling round the world for the last couple of years and this is by far the grossest place we've had the misfortune to stay in. We booked a double room and after only 2 hours asleep, woke up to find the bed infested with bedbugs - and not just a couple - there were at least 20 crawling around and at least 4 different species. It was obvious that they hadn't just popped up over night - the place had clearly been infested for days.
We went to the reception staff at 1am in the morning to check out and the man at the desk had the audacity to ask us why it had taken us so long to notice! He wasn't shocked to hear that the place was crawling and obviously didn't care. He wasn't even going to give us any money back until I mentioned that we had taken pictures of the bed crawling with bugs. Even then he only gave us back a partial refund.
The next morning we discovered we were covered in bites - thank god we woke up only after 2 hours asleep. What makes me really angry is that I can guarantee the room had someone else in it the next night with nothing having been done about the infestation.
We've stayed in a large range of places on our trip and this place is the worst hostelling experience we have had and gives a bad name to hostelling in general.
