“Are you ready to go back to the 90's?”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

This was definitely not the highlight of our trip. The room has not been updated since the 90's. The room was very dark. The furniture was all black and pretty beat up and the tables were old school glass topped. The couch and bed were completely worn out. There was way too much furniture for such a tiny space. The pink bathroom was about a 5 x 5 foot space that included a towel closet, toilet and shower stall, but no sink. The shower had a door that opened in (not the usual outward swing) which meant you had to touch your body to the back of the shower stall in order to close the door. The shower fixtures were rusty and leaking, and when someone upstairs used water you were frozen. I specifically asked about a hair dryer and was told yes so imagine my surprise after my shower only to discover otherwise. Talk about a bad hair day. We rented this room for 2 nights, but left a day early. The one and only positive is it is within walking distance to coffee and nightlife.

“Funky location, everything you need”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Located near commercial drive gave us a variety of restaurants and bars just around the corner . Recommend trendy Havana which was buzzing , many of the eateries have outside dining which is perfect on a balmy night. We bused downtown using the 135 along e hasting or the 20 tram which runs straight down commercial drive, both ran frequently and easy to navigate. The unit is well equipped if a little dark. We were hardly home, so took advantage of the kitchen facilities mostly for breakfast. Howie the host popped in to welcome us with a yummy treat, I think this is great value.

“Cozy and convenient”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A small, cozy efficiency very close to shopping and restaurants. Easy to get in and out of Vancouver from here. Nice for the price, but mattress and couch need to be replaced. Both sag and couch is uncomfortable to sit in. Nice amenities and very nice owners.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

The apartment is in an excellent location for people who like to be able to walk to restaurants, shops, and bars. It is just outside of downtown, so getting to Stanley Park, Granville Island and Gastown was very easy. The accommodations were comfortable and clean and we felt that we were in a very safe location.

Thanks Again!

Translation:)
We were very warmly welcomed by the host family and spent two nice days here. In the apartment we found everything we needed, it was incredibly quiet for city conditions and we slept well. The bed is a bit too small for two adult persons, on the couch you can but also quite good sleep. The shopping street is just 100 meters away, there you will find restaurants and shops. Everything important was available and I would stay in Vancouver anytime again!
