“Budget price in the heart of downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

This is the hotel to choose in Vancouver if you are looking for convenience, a great location, safety and a reasonable cost. If you drive to Vancouver, you can park in secure parking for free. The coffee shop in the lobby is good too!

This place has the advantages of the best of hostels with the feel of an hotel.
The Kitchens, bathrooms and other public areas are spotlessly clean and quite well equipped.
The rooms are a little small and the double bed would have made a nice single. All round it is
Good value for its excellent location.

Clean, comfortable, & smoke free room. The staff were very helpful in warning what areas of Vancouver to stay away from and where shopping and restaurants could be found. We didn't have a view but that wasn't on our "need" list. They are very security conscious and only guests can use the garage and elevators with a special pass key. It's location in downtown is a big plus as well. I stay here again when visiting Vancouver.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the access alley & Sandman Hotel would be quieter

Clean, airy, and mostly have windows, I stayed here for two nights. It's a good area, easy to walk around, close to the library area, and the service is good. They are fairly flexible with your flight schedule which is great. Small coffee shop right downstairs. The 1 person room I stayed did not have a washroom itself has to use a key to walk to a shower room. The kitchen has the basic cooking stuff but will close around midnight. There's a chance of running out of hot water for a period of time if showered late. Overall I recommend for traveler looking for a clean economic place to stay considering the city is overall expensive to stay anywhere.

Located very close to Chinatown, this is a clean facility run by a very friendly, patient, accommodating staff (they were particularly kind to my 2 year old daughter and even gave her a free toy). You're not in 5 star environs, to be sure, but neither do you lack for any of the basics: think of it as a "hostel plus." There are plenty of advertisements for things to do in the area, and the staff is also knowledgeable here. Wireless access, snack machines + very basic cafe, parking and rec facilities - an excellent base from which to explore the city, if you plan on being out and about most of the day.

we stayed here 2 nights in a double with shared bathroom down the hall. I was a bit worried about the shared bathroom but it was fantastic and clean! The room itself was just what we needed, queen bed, tv, aircon, fridge, windows. The aircon worked which was a blessing. Wifi was not complimentary but only cost about $3 per day which was fine for only 2 days.

The staff were really helpful and the location is fantastic! A short walk to Gastown (five minutes) and to the heart of downtown. We arrived by skytrain from the international airport. its really easy and there are instructions on how to get there on the YWCA website.

The best thing about the YWCA is that if you get lost, everyone in Vancouver knows where it is and can point you in the right direction.

I think it is definitely great value and was one of my favorite places to stay in Canada.

I'm unwillingly listening to the person next door showering and using the toilet. I would not recommend getting a shared bathroom with the room nextdoor. Very wierd. You enter from your room, close the door, then press a button for privacy . This does not prevent two people from entering the bathroom at the same time.

Also, watch out for traffic during events at BC Stadium. Beatty street was closed off to cars.
