Vancouver in few days during the Winter :)

We arrived in Vancouver on the 8th just after have finished our West Coast Us trip.
Our flight San Francisco to Vancouver cost us 150 US $.

Vancouver is a really cool city surrounded by all this nature.
You feel very relax in some point :)

Where to eat in a budget ?

- 7 Eleven, pizza for 1 $ , hot dog for 2 $
- 2 restaurants on Grandville street where you can eat for 5/6 dollars all included ( you ll find them easily ,they have big advertising saying " all food 4.75 "
- Burger King : burgers for 2 $

Our hostel was " Hi Vancouver Central " , we got a big reduction , we paid 55 $ a night and we spent 6 nights there.
It is very great , right in the city center, clean room and bathrooms, they also have activities during the week.
You have all bars and clubs around.
