At St Clair Hotel Hostel, we believe in providing affordable accommodation for everyone who wants to travel, because we believe travelling is an essential part of growing as a person.


Our MISSION has always been to support those whose eyes are set on the horizon.

The St Clair Hotel-Hostel is a heritage-listed building, built-in 1911 by Captain Henry Pybus and Architect Samuel Birds. It was the first concrete building in Vancouver, originally built as accommodation for railway and ocean-going passengers from both Pacific and Atlantic locations. The nautical theme has been preserved so that travellers from all over the world can enjoy the history of this unique Vancouver landmark.

Henry Pybus was Captain of the Canadian Pacific Steamship "Empress of Japan" which took the "Blue Ribbon" while setting the Trans-Pacific crossing record in 1897. Captain Henry changed the face of the city of Vancouver by

investing in various buildings in the downtown area.

Our Private rooms are clean and comfortable. 

We offer 36 private rooms, you can select them between Double, Triple, or Family Quad, just "Book NOW".
