I stayed for 3 weeks whilst in Vancouver on business. I had some reservations given some of the reviews, but I've come to realise that some folk will find an excuse to complain about anything! I don't think you can find a short term sublet, nor a hotel room, for this kind of price in Vancouver. The room was clean,... More

We chose this place for its great location. It was clean and bright and the staff were all friendly and helpful. We were disappointed that the pool wasn't available due to construction, but were very pleased with the garden area. It was a little odd to have to go pick up our required utensils for the kitchen. All in all... More

I moved here from out of province and was hoping not to sign a year's lease so this seemed a perfect place. Since I have been here, the laundry facilities have been moved to the parking garage, and don't have hot water, the place is a construction site with constant banging and construction noise, the common areas are now closed...

I lived at Shaughnessy Village for 3 months, because of a project I had to work on. It's redecorated and really bright (even when you have a room to the north). The rooms themself were small but big enough for one person. It was very clean and a room service was once a week includet. Everything was very clean and... More

this place caters to those in desperate need. Be it family of people in the hospital or those on the edge of social assistance and mental illness. Its a strange place that caters to low income because of the price. Strange staff at the front desk, been there for years. Feels like its a cult or something, seriously wierd place... More

Friendly staff, great price, super location and quite a bit of funky, the good kind! Felt like a comfortable place that I would recommend to the adventurous. A bit older, but still a place with character.

I inquired at Shaughnessy Village and was told they have apartment rentals. I was under the impression this was a business with short term and long term rentals. What it is is a really run down place with many social problems. I stayed there two months and many things were stolen. I came home one day and there was a... More
