    very bad..

             

    17.8.2018

    I have been cycling in Canada and I missed a last bus/ferry to Vancouver island so I was not too far from the airport where I thought I could spend a night . I was so wrong.. about 11.00 pm security guy came to check everyones ticket/ boarding pass and if you did not have one they would kick out from the airport. I told what happened and he was just angry idiot telling me this is not a campground.. He said I will give you 10 minutes to pack you things and you go out!! at 11.00 PM..  Thank you !! what a horrible experience.!!!

    Getting filthy

             

    3.9.2018

    Pros: Great airport all around

    Cons: Getting filthier

    I’ve used this airport a lot and the state of cleaning is going downhill. Men’s washrooms wreek of urine and it’s allover the floor. Soap dispensers won’t work. Crumbs on seats. Used to be so clean.

    Primo airport sleeping!

             

    14.4.2018

    Pros: Quiet, warm, friendly

    Showed up in Vancouver the night before for a 7 am domestic flight but it seems as though they close down the domestic terminal overnight and only open it at 4:30. I went in search of a nice place to sleep and found a great one!

    There’s a mezzanine above the international departures terminal (landside), also close to domestic security entrance for the C gates. I took my sleeping bag upstairs and stretched out on the carpet – no other sleepers, minimal foot traffic (only airport staff), quiet, and nice and warm. I only heard one loud cleaner overnight.

    As a bonus the information desk was great about helping me find the best sleeping spots. Go YVR!

    Tiny Airport!

             

    10.10.2017

    Pros: Good WiFi, fast security and check in

    Cons: Airport closes from the afternoon until the evening. No food

    Very small airport but has pretty good WiFi! If you arrive during its closed hours you can still use the WiFi outside the departure entrance. There is no outside washroom though. The area has seats and covered overhead. I would bring food there, although there is a tiny store inside.
