If you're looking for a hostel that is uniquely Vancouver, you need to stay with us at the Cambie Hostel @ Gastown!


Dorms $28+, Private $68+

We've had decades of experience establishing ourselves as a local institution and we're ready to help you have a legendary time while visiting Vancouver! Our hostels are close to attractions, restaurants, transportation centres, and nightlife - and if you're overwhelmed by the choices we have a kick-ass staff that can help you plan your time while you're here.

From beer to bed to breakfast the Cambie Hostel Gastown is the best way to stay in the most historic district in the city. You can party like a local at The Cambie Pub, the busiest bar in BC; or chill upstairs with travellers from around the world in the hostel common room equipped with full kitchen amenities. And when the day is done and you're falling asleep in a comfortable bed, you can look forward to the best breakfast in the city when you wake up. (Free muffin and coffee - or a discount on our comprehensive breakfast menu).

Home to one of Vancouver's busiest and most diverse bars, The Cambie has become a Vancouver institution. Rock and Roll, Hip Hop, Classics and pretty much everything else gets played from the jukebox nightly. If you fit into a scene or live outside the mainstream you belong in our bar. Students, artists, scenesters, hipsters and professionals (basically everyone) pack the bar every night so it is never the same.

Coffee and tea all day,
Homemade muffins in the morning for breakfast
