HI-Vancouver Downtown & Groups

"We have always enjoyed our stay at the hostels. The services and programs offered meet or exceed our needs. The students really enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the hostel versus a hotel or other accommodations."

HI-Vancouver Downtown is located in a downtown, residential neighbourhood, one block from vibrant Davie street.  The hostel is a short stroll from False Creek Ferries which transport people across water to the colourful and busy Granville Island Market - a perfect place to pick up some delicious food supplies to make meals in the hostel's fully-equipped kitchen.  The hostel is also a few minutes walk from beautiful English Bay which takes you towards Vancouver's famous Stanley Park.  There are also mountain bike rentals and the hostel has easy access to public transit for those that are looking to venture a little further.  HI-Vancouver Downtown is an ideal choice for groups wanting to stay in a quiet neighbourhood yet still want to be within walking distance to some of Vancouver's most popular sights.
