Reviewed 19 August 2014

We love staying here, and have a few times now. It's close to the concert venue and all my favorite haunts. It's always excellent.. very clean, really comfortable mattresses, reasonably priced even in the height of tourist season and the front desk staff are efficient, friendly and the service is quick and seamless.
My only concern was on the bathroom door in our room this time, there was a towel rack that was missing the bar and 3 out of the 4 of us got cuts from the rack ends. I let the front desk know when we were checking out and I'm sure they were on it right away.
I will always stay here when I'm in Van!

Room Tip: If you are ever headed over to Van for a concert with friends, request 501. It has 5 single beds, an...

This is definitely a big step up from the Y's of my youth. The makeover has been done well. The rooms are not large but are adequate and you can't beat the location at this price. I like the kitchens although having to get all the plates, utensils and so on from reception was a pain.

Good basic hotel at a fair price for Vancouver and clean. We'll stay again, even though the WiFi is not free..

We enjoyed the stay at the hotel and it is quite near to the skytrain station. The price is also reasonable for a hotel stay near the downtime. A point to highlight is the yellow cab direct line is not the best way to get a cab. You would do better to download the yellow cab mobile app to book a cab.

YWCA is located in Downtown Vancouver still away from the noise and activity of busy streets around. Walk for half a minute and you are there on busy street like Robson Street! YWCA is little less expensive (abt 25 to 30%) than the hotel around the area. What makes them click in spite of concept like 'shared bathroom' between some rooms or really small rooms with pvt bath ( we had one) is their exquisite service with a smile! Each and every person at the reception makes you feel as if you have come to your own house! I will specially mention Ms Hong with whom we interacted the most. In spite of very busy reception, they listen to you with maximum interest and also guide you perfectly for 'things to do' in beautiful Vancouver. I have given one less star only for the small size of the room and bath room. But looking at the overall picture, I would stay at the same hotel if i travel to the city again... free wifi and free parking available...full kitchen facilities available on 10th floor and also coin operated laundry...

Room Tip: try to take higher floors...on our request we got 9th floor...

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...
