“great location - renovated recently”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

We stayed in a private room with ensuite bath though hotel also has dormitory like rooms and private rooms with hallway bath. We stayed there about 8/9 years ago. The hotel have since been renovated. If my memory serves, the room is now much better furnished and much nicer appointed but much much smaller. Robson Street is just around the corner, where lots of restaurants are located. Skytrain transit is a few blocks away - not too close particularly with luggage but totally walkable.

I stayed here for 5 nights, July, 2013. Great hotel, excellent location, staff was very helpful in answering questions about Vancouver and how to get around. I used public transit, no need for a car. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Well it's poor to avg , hotel is somewhat worn, the price isn't the best, some staff are nice helpful and some staff are not helpful or remotely polite oddly combative, hotel is very institutionalized with excessive security needing 3 keys total and hotel completely locks down at 11pm.

Our stay (3 adults) wasn't the best, all night partiers next door spraying nasty air freshener trying to hide whatever they weren't supposed to be doing.

Room was a tight fit a lot of squeezing through and tripping over the bed corner about 14" main pass thru. No small eating table at the other end of the room with a gaping space against the outer wall.

Too much pot smoking at the front doors for our liking.

YWCA is definatly not a family hotel.

We won't stay there again unless we absolutely have to.

Ps, hotel didn't look newly renovated at all their web page must be very old.

Great location, easy to walk in to town or catch a bus or train elsewhere. Very close to Rogers Stadium. I am a solo female traveller in my 40s. I booked the single room with shared bathroom and it worked very well, very secure. Tidy clean room. Very helpful staff re my many queries! The common areas are not terribly social, but not really a problem if you are out and about sight seeing.

On my own in Vancouver, I opted for the perfectly located, simple, super clean YWCA Hotel on Beatty street, across from BC Place stadium. Because the single I had reserved wasn't available I ended up in a twin bedded room at the same price - didn't need the other bed but it sure made the room big! Shower, bath and toilet down the hall, but I never had trouble getting in to any of the facilities when I needed it. As usual, the room was spotless, warm but not hot, with a window that opens for fresh air, a comfy bed, and a TV! Since my last stay, the Y has upgraded its soaps, and now offers complimentary shampoo, conditioner and body wash - a nice new touch. The YWCA hotel is my first choice when in Vancouver on my own or overnight with my kids.

Room Tip: A higher floor is a bit more quiet.

The hotel is very centrally located one block from the Stadium-Chinatown Sky train station and between Georgia and Robson Streets. Chinatown, Yaletown, Gastown and the shopping district are all close by. My room was comfortable and a kitchenette was down the hall. There are cooking facilities on several floors and a fridge in each room. I brought a mug and cutlery with me but supplies can be borrowed. The guest directory includes public transport directions for most of the major attractions and the staff in the lobby are very helpful. Good value and a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Check out the guest information in the room it has great tourist info.

Excellent location; it is within a walking distance of several attractions and near a Skytrain station.
The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was very clean, bright and comfy, compared with other hostels I've stayed at. All rooms have a mini fridge and an alarm clock. Bathrooms were very clean.
The kitchen in my floor didn't always look as spotless as the rest of the common areas, but no biggie. I had many breakfasts and dinners there during my stay.
They don't serve breakfast, but there are tons of places in the neighborhood where you can eat (also within a walking distance).
Wi-fi connection could be a bit faster (in the rooms).
If you're travelling on a budget, this is the place to stay in Vancouver!
