Front Desk: Nice and Helpful, $10 for deposit on card; Towel rental $5; Breakfast is grub-to-go cakes and coffee. Room: 2-bed buck bed, lucky for me that night was only me. No locker, one chair one table. The thing that bothers me a little is the fact the bed is like a tray shape, with mattress in it, so there are a lot of dirty things under, but I guess it's just very hard to clean it because they way it designed. Sheets are pretty clean. Bathroom: Clean and tidy. Hairdryers available. Only thing is that there are no changing spaces and hooks are outside the shower room so basically people may come in while you are naked and getting your towels...But I showered pretty late so no one came in at all Biggest problem: Neighborhood. If you are not a party people that return to hostel after 2 am, nor a people who sleep super tight anywhere, be prepared to listen every billboard hits in your room...I can hear every word the DJ said and every songs played, loud enough that I call my mom in my room and she's asking me whether I am in a pub. Around 4 am some drunk guys were banging on my door and woke me up. Overall, if you are going to Vancouver downtown for party and bars, or you are very experienced hostel travelers, this place definitely have a great value in a great location; but if not, better find another place.

I stayed at the Cambie Seymour hostel for a week while attending the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America. My wife joined me when the conference ended and we spent an additional two days in Vancouver. The best thing about the Cambie Seymour is its location - 3 blocks from the conference center and waterfront, minutes from lots of great restaurants, pubs, art galleries and shopping opportunities, all within walking distance. The other best thing are the friendly and helpful staff at the hostel, they always seemed to have an answer for us when we revealed our ignorance of Vancouver and Canada in general. The bar on the ground floor is also great, with a terrific beer selection. It gets kind of noisy as the weekend approaches - for example, they have a regular Thursday night karaoke dance party, and a DJ every Friday and Saturday night, so if you're a light sleeper you should probably request a room on the 2nd floor (which most folks from the US would consider the 3rd floor). The rooms are very small and the beds are kind of hard, but this is a hostel, after all, and given all the fun things to do in this part of Vancouver, we didn't feel motivated to spend much time in our room. We would definitely stay there again.

The first staff we encountered (overnight shift) was extremely rude. Kept playing on his laptop and told us to come back later. The others were alright though. We were given the wrong room and was told I had to pay extra to get the room I booked. Had to check-out and switch rooms for the second night. This meant re-packing the bags and not being able to use the room until check-in time. Free muffins were ok. Good WiFi. Showers were horrible. You got either boiling hot water or cold water. No room to get changed. You are visible to people using the toilets. The water pipes leaked in the bathroom, so the floors were wet and you got dripped on when in the toilet or shower. The toilets are cleaned just before checkout time. Terrible timing. The window was broken so it was left shut all night. The room got very hot.

In downtown, so unless you turn to bed late, don't expect a noise-less night. The price was very good for a one night stay. Downstairs bar was nice, and the service was great. Room is a bit unclean but what do you expect for a cheap price? Worth checking into if you're low on the budget side and with a group of friends.

Given, when we booked this room, we knew what we were in for. Staff was very friendly and helpful, bathroom was very cleanly, and the complimentary muffins at the front desk were alright! The only downfall is that the hostel has NO air conditioning OR fans. We woke up drenched in sweat in the morning, and that was at 8am! The noise didn't bother me so much because we were planning on it being loud all night anyways. Overall, I think that if you're on a budget and looking for a place in a fix, then this is a great place. But in the summer, spend that little extra and get a place with at least a fan!

I had an early flight out of YVR so I stayed here for the night. There is a bar and grill right underneath, and its noisy at night. But I went and had a few drinks and some food and it was pretty good. And its not too far from the skytrain either.

The room are OK for one night stay for a student. But if your on vacation, just pay extra 15-20 $ so you have a nice sleep. I could hear the music on second floor (old house). Make sure you book rooms 100-107 and not 108-16. I stayed in both parts of the building. Oh, and make sure you have slippers for showering and a lock.

The room was pretty basic as expected. Being above a bar, it can get pretty loud downstairs. However, the hostel is in a GREAT location, near Gastown, transit, shopping, etc. Muffins & coffee are included free for breakfast but you can get a card from the front desk to show at a nearby cafe to get a full breakfast (bacon/sausage, eggs, toast, coffee) for $5, which was a great deal.

I stayed here on a Sunday night while passing through Vancouver. I arrived late and checked out early so wasn't there very long. Contrary to other reviews, it was extremely quiet during my stay. I didn't see many other people around at all. Check in was easy and the staff were very friendly. The muffins in the morning were a treat, perhaps my favourite part of the stay. The room was clean but very hot but there was a window which you could keep open using a wooden block provided. However having the window open meant having to listen to all the outside noise. There are a lot of weird people outside who seem to want to yell and scream at someone/nothing in the wee hours of the morning and I started getting creeped out that someone would climb through the window somehow so I closed it. I paid almost $70 for a private room which I think is quite high for what I ended up getting. The shared bathrooms were not on my floor and that was an inconvenience. Next time I'll just pay the extra and stay at a real hotel.

Really really nice employees. 5$ breakfast which was delicious. Perfect location for people like me who doesn't travel with a car. The room and the washroom is surprisingly clean. Even though the room was small and only has a bed and a table, for all means I was just there for sleeping, so it didn't really bother me. Music was loud at night during weekends, but I loved the music played, and I can easily fall in sleep with the loud music, so it also didn't bother me and my boyfriend. It was worth my money!

There was no ac in the room so it was really hard to sleep. The hotel advertised that you could upgrade your breakfast to hot breakfast. We went to the place where the so called hot breakfast was served but they told that you can't do the upgrade and served us just the same muffins as the hostel. There was a nice bar just downstairs.

Lautstärke: Im Erdgeschoss des Hostels befindet sich das Pub Malone's. Im gesamten ersten Stock helfen dann bis 2 Uhr nachts auch keine Ohropax. Es gibt 2 Etagen mit Zimmern... Nur wer selbst feiern will, den wird es nicht stören. Sauberkeit: Bäder waren ok, Küche nur was für Hartgesottene und was die beiden Zimmermädchen in den Zimmer vorgeben zu putzen, kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Ausstattung: Die Einrichtung und der Boden sind ziemlich abgewohnt, da kommt kein Gefühl von Behaglichkeit auf. Lage: Sehr zentral in Downtown! Gute Anbindung an Skytrain. Man ist schnell in nem guten Pub... :) Service: Personal war freundlich.

"Cannot recommend"
06/24/15 Michel H Stuttgart, Germany
In August 2014 I travelled West coast of Canada & USA. My first night of my trip I spent here. Positiv: Located in downtown, friendly staff. But I can confirm others travellers comments like " Place was like a prison cell". I felt absolutely not comfortable when I checked in and saw the 4 or 5 qm room with one plastic chair (I had similar rooms in Nepal in the Himalaja trekking area for 1$ per night). Cambie... there were a lot of young backpackers. In total it is a very noise place to stay. Fortunately I booked only one night. In my opinion this hostel is definitely not worth the money. It was fully booked, only a double bed room was available... for 49 EUR! Ridiculus for that what you will get. At the end of my trip I spent 3 nights in a really nice motel outside downtown... it was fantastic there. But Cambie... I won't come back and cannot recommend this place.

"You get way you pay for"
06/13/15 ndsfabia Quezon City, Philippines
Good location. Noisy bar and lounge. The corridors and the stairway seemed spooky. Room was so - so (I stayed in a two - bunk dorm room, but had the room to myself). The shower took a long time to warm up (Note: I went there during the winter season). No elevator!!! I had two big trolleys with me, and I had to drag both of them all the way to the third floor! Definitely not coming back. I think there are other hostels that provide better services with the same price.

"Screwed up reservation, broken window and table, disgusting facilities"
05/24/15 TakhiniHotPools Whitehorse, Canada
I had a terrible stay. First of all, the hostel screwed up my reservation. I had booked a private room for two nights but when I checked in I found out that they had messed up my reservation when manually imputing it into their system, by putting my reservation in June rather than May. The staff called management and they did not seem very keen to fix it. Second, once I explained to them that I was angry and that I myself own and operate a hostel (2 hours after I checked in) they decided to shift rooms around and give me my original reservation. However, my new room had a broken window and a broken table. The window would not close and stayed open my entire stay because it was broken. I could put nothing on the table because it was completely broken. Their rooms also had bedbugs, which no one decided to warn me about. That should be illegal by modern standards. The hostel was very loud and played music so loudly that it was impossible to sleep. The entire building was in disgusting shape, paint peeling everywhere, the bathrooms were so gross that I had to use the Starbucks next door. There was also a gloryhole in the bathroom. The staff at the counter was nice and mostly helpful. A blond woman named Anna-Lisa was very helpful. Management seemed not to care about this terrible service and only discounted me 23$ on a 130$ booking. I will NEVER stay there again nor will I ever recommend them to any of my patrons that come through my hostel.

"Bed bugs!"
04/22/15 Raerae1376
BED BUGS!! Room 211. Place was like a prison cell. Dirty and dingy. The staff are friendly and put me in a different room when I realized there was bed bugs. Bar is great and location. Very noisy though. Won't be coming back.

"Strong average! Great staff! Cheap, clean and easy"
04/22/15 TV_2112
I stayed here for a week in total, originally booking for just 2 nights. I fell in love with the city and also found the hostel to be very welcoming. I had no issues with cleanliness of the bedrooms or facilities, in fact bed linen seemed to be changed every other day. No major issues with facilities, key and towel deposit is justified in my opinion. Staff were happy to let me occupy dorms with no one else in, which worked out great, always helpful and talkative. The included coffee and muffins were great, and couldn't fault the $5 all out breakfast next door, whose staff were also awesome! It is however very basic, and the noise from downstairs could get irritating at times, partly solved by earplugs at times. On my floor only one of the three men's showers worked, though I never had to wait (early riser).

"Horrible Hostel"
01/28/15 John H Victoria, Canada
We were looking for a place to spend the night, ideally near the main street. My girlfriend and I are used to hostels, cheap hostels, and any other place that are not expensive, as we often travel a lot to Vancouver, yet don't want to spend too much on a room. We found this one.... So we arrived, the lady was really nice, until she gave us the keys, and explained us there is a $20 deposit *per* key - which was the first thing I didn't really like, this is the first time we are asked to pay for a deposit for the keys, knowing we paid for a room. We didn't spend too much time looking around, we just wanted to drop our stuff before going out. Level 2, we arrive to our room, which is more a closet than a room: a bed that takes 80% of the space, a window that we cannot keep open, and a tiny table. Oh, and a mirror. The sheets weren't completely clean, which somehow wasn't cool - we're talking about funky smudges there and that. Under the table, I can't help but notice the mouse trap, and I preferred not to freak my GF out. Heading to the shower, the door doesn't close, one sink is unusable, and one shower's tap is broken. Hand soap? not even. Kinda grossed out, I decided not to take a shower, then we left. The day after - I woke up, kinda curious about their breakfasts options: nothing but a couple of muffins on the front desk, near one kind of tea, and cheap coffee. Real sugar? Nope, only sweeteners (and muffins). I wanted to take a shower, until I notice we didn't have any towels - this is when I head back to the counter and ask for two towels "I'd need a $10 deposit, $5 per towel"....What the? Turning my head, I can see a mouse trapped, yet still alive, squeezing and trying to escape, this was kinda disgusting. 10 mn later, back with my credit card, the mouse is still there, alive. Oh man....

"Covered in BED BUG bites"
10/21/14 Wanderingaimless
We stayed 2 nights in the Cambie Seymour and had a terrible time. The hostel is situated above a bar and club which means music and people yelling all night long. The general feeling of the hostel was very sad. The private room and bathrooms were as clean as what you would get in a hostel - but the worst part of our stay was the BED BUGS. I have red itchy welts all over my arms and legs and the bugs were visible at the ends of the bed. We got out of there as soon as we could. The only good thing I have to say about the Cambie Seymour was the muffins they had in the morning were pretty good.

"Bedbugs"
09/28/14 danielk1632
Sorry, I quite liked some aspects of the hostel, but I have to say terrible as I got bitten to pieces by bedbugs staying here. Horrible night, hardly slept, and I'm now covered in 20+ itchy bites. You could see the damn things, and the bed also smelled pretty bad, so I'd question the cleanliness. They wouldn't refund my first night either. I've been travelling for 4 months, including some very basic places in South America, and this is the first place I've stayed that has this problem.

"Terrible service! Do not book here!"
09/26/14 StevenMudslide Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
Booked a double room, turned up and they had double booked our room. Was offered two single rooms, with no other choice of accommodation we begrudgingly agreed. Went up to room (only after faulty ket had been changed three times!) there was bags of rubbish blocking us even getting to our room with our heavy luggage once we arrived at the room it was disgusting and resembled a worn out prison cell; the window was held open by a piece of metal, the furniture was battered with chunks missing and it smelt damp! We returned downstairs to express our disappointment 5 minutes later, we asked for a refund as not only was the room rank but it was t even the room we had booked. We were refused a refund due to 'policy' !!! We left a message for the owner to contact us regarding the whole situation as we knew it wasn't an issue the girl at the counter could sort herself and he never got back I touch and we are still trying to track down a refund!!! Terrible service!!!
