I bring a university group down the coast each summer and we stay at the YWCA. This is the best option for those not looking for something relatively affordable while not so keen on the gritty backpacker's. The location is superb with walking access to Robson St shops, Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown, Skytrain and, of course, the hockey arena and football stadium (right across the street). One of Vancouver's trendiest breakfast places - Medina - and Belgian restaurants - Chambar - are a couple blocks down Beattie St. The staff are friendly and attentive. There are kitchen facilities. The rooms are clean and comfortable although obviously not too fancy. Nothing to complain about really. YWCA may not have that much character [it's not the Ace Hotel] but it is a good option.
