We booked this hotel because of it's cheaper price than further into the city centre, although it was still in a close location. When we arrived we realised why it was cheaper. East Hastings Street is nutorious for druggies and prostitutes. It's very sad to see and quite scary when you're two females on your own after dark. Although the locals said that the people won't harm you, it's quite intimidating and not very nice to see. The hotel itself was clean and breakfast was included in the price.
We would strongly recommend not visiting Vancouver with a car here. We took our car back early as we were worried that despite being in the hotel car park, drunks and druggies would hang out there at night.
All in all, if we were to visit Vancouver again, we'd choose to stay further out at a decent hotel and get the skytrain in or the bus. The public transport and taxi are very reasonable. Although budget Patricia in itself is okay, the area really lets it down and I hope that the people of Vancouver will start doing something about the very sad problem they have down Hastings Street.
