    It is sad that I have to write this review. But the owner/manager is a bit shady. I originally made a reservation through hostels.com. I was intending to book a larger en suite bathroom and misbooked. I emailed the hostel directly and asked for them...More

    The Urban Hideaway is definitely an experience we will not forget. It's a cross between a B and B and a hostel, one without noisy travelers. The best kept secret is that it's CASH ONLY. This was very inconvenient for us as we can only...More

    A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
    stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
    being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
