I stay in this hotel atleast once a year for conferences and have also stayed here for concerts, theatre and other performances, plus vacations. It's conveniently located in downtown across from BC Place, within walking distance of GM Place, Vancouver Public Library and Queen Elizabeth Theatre. There are restaurants and small grocery stores nearby. The only drawback, is it's a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights back in October when in Vancouver for the U2 show. Across the road from BC Place. Easy walk to main shopping areas downtown and transport. Communal kitchen was clean and had lockable cupboards (bring own lock). Staff were very helpful, friendly. Good accomodation for the price.

This hotel is unique. It is similar to a no-frills hotel with a small room. However, it is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver so walking places is easy and the price is much less than you would find at a commercial hotel. It is a new building so it is extremely secure and was built with several price... More

I stayed here for two nights at the start of my holiday. I had a single room with a shared bathroom, which means there is one shower and toilet shared between two rooms. My room was clean and basic, but had plenty of space, a wash basin and a fridge. The shared bathroom concept is a little strange as it... More

This hotel accommodates many different kinds of travelers... it can be a hostel-style, or complete privacy is available. The prices are affordable, and I loved the underground parking where we were able to leave our vehicle the entire stay. CLEAN & SAFE! Nice, helpful staff, too.

The YWCA is a very good hostel located in downtown Vancouver. It is right at the edge of the downtown area and is easily acsessed by public transport. Get the sky train to the stadium/chinatown stop and its a short walk from there. Getting there by car could be hard with Vancouver's busy city centre roads. The staff were very... More
