We offer our guests an exciting and lively atmosphere with the opportunity to explore a bustling city that is right on our doorstep. With two locations in Vancouver and one in Nanaimo, our various locations allow travelers to enjoy the ultimate experience! Each location has something for everyone from private rooms to 2-bed dorms to 4-bed to 6-bed dorms to 8-bed mixed dorms. The Cambie hostels are where you go to meet travelers and enjoy your stay to the max. With the on-site pubs, you will never run out of things to do and people to meet. Our helpful staff is on-hand 24 hours a day to make sure you have all the information and insider tips you need to make your stay enjoyable. Whether you're looking for fun rainy day activities, free events, or the best cup of coffee around, our staff is happy to help you.
