I went to Vancuver after Salt Spring Island and I stayed youth hostel. (but I am not youth anymore..) The hostel has very simple shower place. I was expecting to see many young people, but actually I saw many adult staying at the hostel. It was kinda surprise for me. I am glad that the hostel was not noisiy.
Nyankichi-Sensei : Since people tend to have long vacation and travel many place, they try to save money and stay hostel. It's good that youth hostel is not only for 'youth' but for everyboday!
