“Good value in an expensive city”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

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.

My stay at the YWCA in downtown Vancouver was excellent, The staff is so friendly they can't do enough for you and are so ready to help you with directions and how to get around town.
They even arranged for a cab to meet me at 5 15 in the morning to take me to the train station.
They are a short walk to the train station, buses, great restaurants & shopping.
The next time I'm in Vancouver I'll definitely stay at the YWCA!

We stayed at the YWCA Hotel in Vancouver when we were in town for several days for a soccer match. The location for that was perfect, right across from BC Place, but the hotel is also located within easy walking distance of downtown, Gastown, Chinatown, and the Stadium-Chinatown SkyTrain stop. The value also couldn't be beat.

The staff was friendly, providing us a late checkout for our evening flight and helping us with bus directions. Plus, by staying here you are supporting the mission of the YWCA in helping local women and families.

Room Tip: We had a two bed room on the north side with a sink and a shared bathroom, which had an electronic l...

Once again, I found the YWCA in Vancouver a wonderful place to stay. Convenient location, friendly staff, clean and adequate room and a good price. The only thing missing was the front desk person Pat. I heard she retired. She was always so helpful over the years.

The location and pricing makes the YWCA a great place to hang your hat when visiting Vancouver. Whether you are a sport fan, concert goer or just there to take in the many sights in the downtown Vancouver area, the hotel is within easy walking distance to many of these venues. Very close to the transit center and Costco!

This hotel has always been clean, comfortable, quiet and friendly. The desk and cleaning staff are very helpful and much nicer to talk to and willing to go out of their way to help than most high end hotel staff. The overall atmosphere of the hotel is fun as there is a wide variety of guests. the location is wonderful as downtown Vancouver is walkable or busable from here and it is right across the street from the stadium and close to Gastown and Chinatown and central shopping.

Room Tip: If you are going to use one of their kitchens ask for a room on the same floor as a kitchen. There...

I was a little apprehensive about the shared bathroom situation, but in reality, there was no problem. They have a button in the bathroom that when pressed locks both doors so that no one from either room can disturb you.

The room was clean and had lots of windows. We booked a double room for two people. It was on the small side but suited us just fine.
