The Space

Welcome to historic Gastown in Vancouver! This entire apartment includes a queen size bed, well equipped kitchen, modern bathroom, wifi, 10ft high ceiling, laundry, dryer, and more. Very cool spot!

The location of the apartment-studio is in the heart of Gastown a developing and up-and-coming urban zone. It's Vancouver's newest and
coolest hotspot with so many great restaurants and shops to visit.

The studio is kept very clean, well furnished, and beautifully simple. The kitchen is very functional and great for any sort of cooking. A gas fireplace is ready for cold weather, and a portable air conditioner for the hot days. The big windows will make sure you have plenty of sunshine and air. Crab Park, a hidden gem, is just north of the train tracks which has a small stone-beach, plenty of greenspace, and a beautiful view of North Vancouver.

If you need to work or do some research about Vancouver you can take advantage of the WiFi internet and table. Hopefully this space will inspire you a little!

  • We hit the jackpot with Hayato's awesome Gastown apartment. The space is clean and beautifully decorated. The neighborhood is amazing and the apartment is a couple blocks away from some of the best food and drinks i have ever had. If you are contemplating a stay in Vancouver, pick this one.

  • Hayato has a great, tidy, and stylish apartment in a perfect, central location. It's also next to some great coffee, and a few doors down from a steady supply of fresh BC oysters! I will definitely look to Hayato next time I'm in Vancouver!

  • What can I say but wow! Hayato's place is amazing, stylish and homely all at the same time. We were met by his lovely Mother and she couldn't do enough to ensure we were happy and knew where everything was. Hayato's place is ideally located in a great part of the town and my partner and I loved it . I wish we could have stayed there longer. Thanks Hayato :-)

  • I stayed in Hayato's place for 5 nights on vacation and had a great time staying in his studio loft. The unit was clean and the interior was incredibly designed and well furnished. It can get a little noisy at night in the alley that the unit backs onto but that would be the only caveat. The unit is in a great location in Gastown which had plenty of interesting restuarants and shops. Overall, it was a great place to stay.

  • Hayato's Gastown Loft was a wonderful base for our recent trip to Vancouver. The Loft was clean, cool, and conveniently located in walking distance to some amazing coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Although Hayato was out of town the day of our arrival, his mother was there to greet us and answer any questions we might have had. Furthermore, Hayato was kind enough to leave us maps of the city, as well as brochures on all of the fun things to do in the city. I would definitely recommend staying here on your next trip to Vancouver.

  • Excellent location, near good bars and restaurants, and convenient to skytrain. Also a great space, roomy and comfortable, with all the necessary amenities. Would love to stay again the next time I'm in Van.

  • What an awesome AirBnB experience! Hayato's studio was a brand new loft in gas town. It was beautifully furnished and the location couldn't have been better. And Hayato himself is a super considerate host. Thanks for letting me stay!

  • The studio is very modern and clean. I couldn't have stayed at a better place.

    Hayato is wonderful - making arrangements ahead of time, leaving maps of Vancouver in the apartment, and genuinely putting in the effort to get to know you. Little things count.

  • This was our first experience of airbnb. It is a fantastic way to stay in a city like Vancouver. We were in a great part of town and the apartment acted as a perfect base from which to explore. We cooked dinner on one night of our stay and felt in no rush to get out when planning our day in the mornings. The apartment was clean, with every amenity needed and Hayato was an easy going and friendly host. Would highly recommend. Thanks!

  • Hayato’s place is great, very stylish and modern, with all of the niceties of home. Hayato himself was very patient, we arrived a bit late because we missed our ferry, and he waited around for us to introduce himself, and answer any questions or concerns we had. He was also very helpful in responding to texts when I bothered him for suggestions on places to eat :) One of the only noise issues I'd say, and this isn't something that Hayato can really control, is the alley at the back of the place, which can get loud (especially when street dwellers rifle through the dumpsters). However we found that closing the windows really helped in this regard. But, more importantly, if you don’t stay at Hayato’s I challenge you to find a better place and host. If I’m back in Vancouver, I’ll try and stay here for sure!
