Value is good if you're travelling with 2 or more people. Rooms are only $10 cheaper if single. Location is great, close to Telus Science world, BC place and the transport hub at Pacific Central Station (buses to Whistler and trains to seattle). Within 15min walking distance from nightlife at Granville Street and Downtown city centre. Rooms are clean and... More

All of the positive comments by other are correct about this hotel. Stayed in single room with no bathroom, $75/night. Shared bathroom was immaculate and never occupied when I went. Room is basic but clean and comfortable. Wifi is $3/day, quite reasonable. Parking is convenient and locked up, so less concern about window smashing junkies.

I have been visiting Vancouver and staying at the YWCA Hotel since 2009. Whilst I have stayed at another hotel a few times when the YWCA Hotel was fully booked, I have always preferred to stay here. The location is very idea as it's walking distance to Rogers Arena and BC Place. As well as many other smaller venues in... More

We really enjoyed staying at the YWCA this summer. It had all the best bits of both a hotel and a hostel - a comfortable bed and spotlessly clean combined with a shared kitchen where we could cook a proper meal and get to chat to interesting people! Getting free entry to the YWCA sports complex was a great bonus... More

Location was great for anyone wanting walking access to downtown. It was easy to get to from transit (10 minute walk) and the staff is kind. It's also very safe. They could make the shared bathroom a bit more welcoming. The cost you pay for what you get is great though, it's places like this that have allowed me to... More

We stayed during a short trip to shop with our two teenagers. Hubby and I shared a double double room and son and daughter shared a double double room. Great set up for families with kitchen facilities to cook meals when not eating out. We were loaned free kitchen utensils and cookware for our stay and made use of the... More

We stayed at YWCA Hotel for 6 nights during July in a private bedroom with shared bathroom. It was one of the few affordable hotels that we could find in downtown and the experience was really good. The bedroom was basic but really comfortable, new and clean. Sharing the bathroom wasn't a problem at all. Some days we couldn't even... More

I stayed one night at the YWCA Hotel Vancouver last week, on my way to Seattle. Since I was only really there "in transit", I wasn't looking for anything fancy. I stayed in a single bedroom with a shared hall bathroom. The room was a decent size & the bed was very comfortable! The whole hotel was just about spotless... More

Although this is a 'no frills' place to stay, the location was excellent, the staff friendly and the room although basic was comfortable. The Moxies Hotel round the corner has an excellent breakfast for around $12. However BEWARE THE FACT THAT YOUR BILL WILL BE AROUND 12% HIGHER THAN THE AMOUNT SHOWN WHEN YOU BOOK DUE TO CITY AND STATE... More

The price we paid for a double room was relativeliy high compared to what we got elsewhere the following days of our stay in the city of Vacouver. Had we done better research we had not chosen this hotel. It is clean and centrally located, and you can cook by yourself in one of the kitchens on every second floor.... More
