"Scummy area" Downtown Eastside Tip by VancouverGuy

Downtown Eastside, Vancouver: 62 reviews and 16 photos

If someone tells you to go downtown to the area of Hastings & Main st - don't bother. Very bad part of town... unless you like being surrounded by drunks, drug freaks and hookers.

Directions: Generally the area between Gastown & Chinatown, focused along the Main & E Hastings intersection

Review Helpfulness: 2 out of 5 stars
