The counter staff go through great lengths to explain directions for us. Housekeeping staff was awesome too. The people working here are friendly and helpful. Rooms are generously big and spacious, well equipped with hair dryer, fridge etc, new, clean and tidy. Wifi and shower etc work fine. Location is good too, walking distance from key tourist areas...reasonable eateries nearby...kitchens... More

The room was way too small for 2 people. We paid $110 per night (shared bathroom), and feel that is was overpriced for what you are getting. Service was decent, room was pretty clean & location was also ok

I'd describe the YWCA Hotel Vancouver as somewhere between a hotel and a hostel. It's cheaper than a typical hotel but you still get a room to yourself, though it's not quite as cheap as a hostel. When you get a room with a shared bathroom, you really are sharing one bathroom with the entire floor. We were lucky because... More

We stayed for 5 nights in July 2014. The room and facility was clean and tidy, overall. The room was a bit small and the bed was situated so that one person had to be skinny and slink along the wall to get out of bed. It was the quietest Y I've ever stayed at! There were a variety of... More

We stayed here twice, pre cruise and post in Jun/July 2014 in a double room with shared ensuite bathroom (2 rooms sharing 1 bathroom). We had mixed experiences. On the first stay, as we had pre-requested for a quiet room, we were allocated a corner room on the 12th floor. Room is small but quiet and it faces the rear.... More

I stayed three nights over the weekend. The YWCA is centrally located. Rooms are not too big, but sufficient. Beds are great, windows well isolated, and everything clean. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and the BC stadium is just opposite. Excellent value for money.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and very knowledgeable about the local surroundings. The location was excellent, being walking distance from the downtown, two stadiums, and the Olympic Village. The hotel felt very safe, especially since the elevator only worked with a key-card linked to your floor. The room was very clean with a good view of the city. There was... More

We booked because of the other high ratings and were not disappointed. Very clean, simple and affordable. Common areas clean and accomodating. Convenient to bus and restaurants. Close to train. Front desk helpful and friendly. Highly recommend!

Rooms are small, but met our needs. Beds hurt our backs. Location is good to downtown. Its a little weird sharing a bathroom/shower with someone you do not know. We were unable to park in the garage due to the size of our vehicle. They offered for us to park in outside space. Unfortunately, guests and staff decided to throw... More

Yhotel, General Manager at YWCA Hotel Vancouver, responded to this review

Thanks for taking the time to write a review during your holidays. I'm pleased that we were able to accommodate your over sized vehicle when it didn't fit in our secured underground parking lot. However, I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused by finding garbage in the back of your truck. We have every faith our staff weren't involved.... More

We spent one night here before we flew home. We arrived 2 hours early and our room was already ready, so we could drop off our bags and get going. Amazing! The staff were super friendly and helpful on check-in and throughout the evening and the next day. The room was clean, modern and very comfortable. We both had a... More
