The location is reasonably good - 15 minutes' walk to the Waterfront, just 5-10 minutes to the main downtown streets.
The rooms are clean and functional - comfortable bed, good hot showers, good WiFi. The lavatories and showers are shared, but in 5 days there I never once had to wait. They are kept very clean.
The reception service is consisently friendly and helpful, and security is good. They also have a secure bicycle park in case you take a multi-day bike rental. There's an ATM in the lobby, and drinks machines too. The attached cafe only does coffee and pastries, but is quite OK for breakfast, and on the next street (Robson) there are several breakfast places if you want something more substantial.
Considering the price, it's excellent. The Y is also a good cause.
