Maybe this is me being silly, but I feel like including the date and end of LTX in the OP would be helpful?

We are working on some other blocks and we'll of course update the post when/if we do get some more. Vancouver is already busy in the summer so securing a single hotel blocks in the hundreds aren't always possible. Each hotel also works differently and has different requirements/contracts/agreements that we have to take into consideration.

$60 for a hostel style bunk bed is quite expensive. If you are 6' tall, good luck sleeping in them pods! LOLOLOLOL What a joke.

 

 

 

I bet Hostel International is $40 or $45. You wont be able to get a motel room for less then $100 anywhere.

Campgrounds are cheap.

Sleeping in your car is cheap.

Renting a Uhaul van and sleeping in that is $20/night + $0.40/km. A very legit method if you ask me! Even if you drove to Vancouver, you can still rent a uhaul van, or a uhual cube van and sleep in it. I would hunt down tons of clean cardboard, maybe buy some camping bed foam from Crappy Tire and bring your sleeping bag.

Finding a spot where you wont be hassled to pitch a tent for free would be quite easy to do. I notice lots of good spots nearby.

Oof.  You're not gonna be very popular with fellow convention goers with this method.

Well, you can always shower at any gym. City pools have a shower fee of a couple dollars. Use baby wipes or just cover body odor with Axe Body spray. A quick wipe down at any Tim Hortons coffee shop washroom. Truck stops you can use their showers, and if someone just got out you can use the dirty shower for much cheaper.

 

Been backpacking and traveling for cheap for a long time. Gotta know all the tips and tricks.

More like been going to anime conventions for a long time. Spraying yourself with Axe when you stink of BO just makes it ten times worse.

I hate the smell of Axe even if you've just showered.

Anyone know the rules for sleeping in your car at the lot of the event center? some places here in the US don't allow it.

Otherwise truck stops are usually ok with it and they have showers you can use for a few bucks.
