Why so many Silicon Valley companies are moving to Vancouver
The Migration north of some of the biggest tech companies from the Silicon Valley to Vancouver, has knock effects to even the travel industry.
With some of the most valued and desired jobs being in the tech industry, there will be even more need for affordable accommodation in downtown Vancouver. Whether that be for job seekers attending interviews, or the need for overnight business stays in a quiet hotel or hostel.
Therefore the ideal place to stay would be in St Clair Hotel Hostel, with our more mature clientele and affordable accommodation and variety of different room types including single bed private room starting from only $49
