I was looking for a place to stay at Vancouver and seriously, the whole city is expensive ! While I ideally wanted a room for two nights , the hostel had a dorm room to offer for night and I took it !

Hostelling International Vancouver Central Hotel Vancouver
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy
social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.

They have a luggage room at the hostel.
I think there is pay-parking nearby.
Hello, we left our luggage there just after check out for a few hours only. There is a small room for our luggages. Unclear whether hostel would allow you to store luggages over a few days.My suggestion: travel light!
