Quiet and quaint, this location is the perfect getaway after exploring the shops of Kingsway and eating where the locals love.
Great location for those who enjoy a 5 minute walk to countless local restaurants and shops. Numerous bus stops are 3 minutes away. Modern and very comfortable, you cannot beat the price for the tranquility, convenience, and care that you get. The hosts visit the property daily and, if needed, are a phone call away. Bathrooms, kitchens, and a public living all guests.

Smoking, Keys, & Pets
Smoking is not allowed inside the household (Permitted outside only). There is a $50 charge for a lost key. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate pets at this time.
Please stay quiet after 10:00 for respect of other guests. Shoes are not to be worn inside the house. Slippers are provided for all guests.
The room is comfortable and has enough light while being in an above ground basement. The kitchen is on the smaller side and if the other guests are preparing their meals as well, then there is not that much room. It has all the equipment / appliances needed, though. There is also a washer and dryer tucked away in a small recess. So, all services are covered.
My experience was somewhat impacted by one other guest in the house smoking pot. No need to discuss the details & pro/contra that here, but I definitely don't think a guest should even consider that in an environment with many other guests. Mai and Tan have thankfully agreed to place me in their other guest house in the Beatrice Street for the same rate, which also has a higher standard than this house and is more modern / upgraded.
I stayed for approximately 6 weeks and it was very pleasant.
Unit: Nicely furnished (full kitchen is a big plus) and cleaned regularly. Also has surprisingly fast Wifi.
Room: The room itself was very large, comfortable, and perfect for a stay of any length of time.
Location: While there isn't a lot to see in the neighbourhood, there are lots of restaurants, and it feels safe to walk around pretty much any time of day. It is also very close to various buses/skyrain, so it is easy to get around Vancouver.
Operators: Sandy and David are very nice and helpful.
Drawbacks: Only potential drawback is that there is only one bathroom for 3 rooms. But this is only ever an issue if everyone is getting ready at the same time in the morning.
Overall: Would definitely recommend it for a stay of any length.
Nice and clean place. Easy to reach the host at all time. Close to public transportation to Reach the center. The extra bed in the room was really uncomfortable though.
Our stay was great! The house and the room was very clean. The location is convenient. All suits in the house were booked at the time, but we had no problem with our neighbours - everyone was very quiet and respectful.
Mai was very kind and accommodating. We needed to stay and extra night, but unfortunately our suit was booked. She went out of her way by finding a different room for us and letting us stay there. Highly recommended!
