Very good hotel. I stayed there in residency twice, each time over 6 months. The place is quiet, the beds very comfortable, and the staff super friendly. I definitely recommend it to every one who wishes to stay in downtown Vancouver at a reasonable rate.

We stayed here forentwo nights prior to our Rockies roundtrip and we were very happy with it. Very friendly and helpfull staff and a very basic but clean room for a fair price. We stayed in a room with private bathroom. Very convenient location.

When we (my wife and I) planned our trip to Seattle (US) last May-Jul, we also included a short trip to Canada (Vancouver). We traveled by train from Seattle to Vancouver on 3 Jul 14.
On arrival at Vancouver (Pacific Central Station), we went straight to YMCA hotel where we had booked the accommodation on-line. The hotel is centrally located, clean, and affordable and is extremely well managed by efficient staff and house keepers. Welcome folders etc. were user friendly and included explicit instructions .The friendly, courteous, helpful and knowledgeable reception staff was, par excellence and this helped us enjoy our 3 days trip to Vancouver.

We stayed here in September 2012. I had spent months researching places to stay in Vancouver before our cruise. Everything was lovely but, very expensive. I finally stumbled across an ad for the YWCA. After a little more research I decided to book it for a one night stay. It was very easy to book and the staff were amazing about answering all my questions. They also offered some suggestions about the room we should take. We also got a Senior's rate which was really good. I emailed them to say that we would be arriving at 9:00 a.m. And they had no problem with that. They said if our room wasn't ready they would hold our bags until it was, allowing us to do some sight seeing. Fortunately our room was ready. We were very pleased with our room and the other areas available to us. There is a kitchen and eating area as well as a common room on every floor. You must have a key to use the elevators and the building is locked up at night....very safe. We spent the day wandering around. It is very centrally located and we were able to cover all the local hot spots. The cruise terminal is even within walking distance. Around the corner from the hotel is a street that has tons of restaurants and shopping. Our room was very comfortable and we had a very quiet nights sleep. Will highly recommend this hotel to our friends and will be sure to stay here again.

I have stayed here a couple of times on extended 1+ week stays while on business in Vancouver. The first thing I like about this hotel is that it is a social enterprise. My money is going to YWCA programs in Vancouver. It's not often that I feel good about paying a hotel bill, but I feel great about it here.

Most importantly, the hotel is incredible well managed and every detail is addressed. From the rooms, to the shared kitchen and laundry facilities, every aspect is a fine tuned and cost effective machine. I highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: I always stay in the single base room with a shared washroom down the hall. Don't be afraid - th...
