"Downtown very scary" Beggars, homeless & junkies Tip by bigjohnstud

Beggars, homeless & junkies, Vancouver: 33 reviews and 9 photos

This is not a very safe city, I think it is worse than people say. Yes Robson street is safe, and yes areas like the west end are safe. However, we saw violence, drunks and other dangers all over the city and not just in the east end!! Lots of wannabe gang members who are still as dangerous as real gangsters and a lot of dangerous mentally ill homeless people. Beware and think of carrying mace.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

    I didn't even go to East Side and I was scared. I kept being harrassed by creeps, and almost got jumped. If the area wasn't filled with police, I probably would have. Yaletown is the worst! This is the worst place I've ever been. You couldn't pay me to go back there.
