I recommend this place although it is far away from the city center. It's a good place for travellers who like nature and tranquility because you can explore beautiful hiking trails just around the corner.More

Excellent value, loads of places to eat nearby. Athletic facilities available to use with a small fee [Pool was great]. The University has an excellent book store as well as Starbucks and Tim Hortons. Nice pubs as well

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that you had an unfortunate experience with some insects. We apologize that no other staff members came to investigate. We will definitely look into this issue and investigate the room.

Clean beds, right on UBC campus. Cafeteria food was actually quite good. Close to the beach ... Good security and single rooms. Has shared bathroom / shower facilities however. Overall quite acceptable for the price.
