We had a private room on the second floor (there are a lot of stairs!) with shared washroom. These were cleaned twice a day, so this turned out to be no problem.
There were three fans in our room, so the temperature was OK. It was pretty quiet during the nights, we haven't heard a thing.
We didn't use the kitchen, but we took a look at it and it was really clean.
The Beaver is a great location to have a nice dinner and a few beers in the evening. The food is really good and if don't want to cook for yourself and go with their daily special offer it's a cheap (and much better!) alternative to McDonalds and Co.
The breakfast in the morning, which is also served in the Beaver, contains different sorts of bagels and bread, muffins, butter, marmelade and honey, cereals, fresh fruits, coffee (which is good!), milk, orange and apple juice. It’s really good, although after the third night we kind of had enough of it ;)
If you get there a little bit late, it might be quite crowded, so that you have to share your table with other guests, but that’s good to make some new friends ;)
I would totally recommend this hostel to anyone with low budget who is looking for a cheap but good accommodation in Vancouver!
