We stopped here for a burger and a beer and that's what we got. Wasn't bad but nothing special. Probably wouldn't go back.

I stayed at the Cambie hostel based on Seymour for one night. The place is very noisy (there are traffic lights on the street and you can hear them every minute!). Also it needs renovation!

Choices between dorm rooms and private rooms, mostly shared bathrooms. It's an old place but always kept clean. Cheap & yummy breakfast in the morning! I always have a good sleep when staying here.

Amazed it's still there and still offering a burger and a beer, not the 6.00 or 8.00 dollars I paid many moons ago. Cold beer, top notch nachos, and a excellent burger and fries. Still a big cross section of patrons from construction workers to white collar business people. Some good memories here glad to see its still in the... More

I was goaded into going to the Cambie. I was very skeptical, but the cheap pitchers were a selling point. Is it a dive bar? Yes for sure, but you get a nice mix of people there. Go with a group of friends early, claim and table, and make some friends! Food is better than what the bar vibe gives... More

I saw the huge outdoor seating area, I thought it would be a decent place for a beer and some cheap grub. Ehhh, it is what it is. Hostel, all the way around. The chicken tenders and fish get fried in the same fryer, you could taste it on the chicken. If you're looking for a cheap meal, and to... More

Great for the younger and more casual crowd to have a few drinks or then some. Some cheap bar food option of average quality..but you're there for the drinks and lively atmosphere.

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
