The only items we feel regret are 1) no big restaurant and 2) self-laundry.

I believe that we can overcome 1) by using the Italian restaurant inside of the neighbouring Georgian Court Hotel. For 2), if you are too busy business executives and no time to wash by yourself, you may want to stay at other hotels around here. However, there are several issues like indoor smoking for another neighbouring hotel. See the reports for the neighbours.

Except these two issues, I am sure that this is the best place to sleep and use Internet with Wi-Fi among all of the hotels as far as I know in Vancouver, BC.

I enjoyed my stay at the YWCA hotel. The desk staff were very nice and helpful. The room was not fancy, but it was comfortable and quiet. The neighborhood is good. It was a friendly place. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, request a high floor.

We had a great stay at the YWCA on Beatty Street. Wonderful people behind the counter - they couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. Best rates in town for a clean, safe room within walking distance of Robson street shopping, autoboat ferries, & Rogers stadium to name just a few spots. The room was basic, as expected, but very clean.

I have stayed here often when I come to Vancouver for good value and if you are not too concerned about extra non used amenities. Book easily online with credit card. Though own bathroom is an option the shared bathroom with press button lock out is very good. Myself and my adult daughter stayed here in a twin shared bathroom for $88 including taxes. The location is easy to get to by Skytrain (2 block walk) and then two Sky train stops with a little walk to the bus station for bus/ferry to Victoria when we left. Rooms are like any hotel room nice big screen TV and comfortable beds. Location downtown is nice for waking around (right next to hockey arena). Not for everyone but good value, but definitely not your mother's YWCA rental rooms.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and you must use your key tag to access elevator. Means no others can use elevat...

Stayed for one night in a room with a double bed and private bath. Choose this hotel for the central location and low rate and wasn't disappointed.

The check in and check out were very quick and the desk personal was very friendly and helpful.

The room was basic, as expected, but very clean. I asked for a quiet room on my reservation and was happy with the room we got - 702. Had the window open during the night and it was quiet.

The location is very good. We pretty much walked everywhere: all over downtown, Canada Place, Gastown and Granville Island. It's also a walk away from a few light rail / SkyTrain stations, bus stops and pretty close to one of the ferry / SeaBus stations.

I'll be happy to stay here again.

My husband and i stayed here on April 9,10,2013.
It was my second time here and my husbands first and it was perfect!
Beds were comfortable and clean,as was the suite,
We occupied 2 double beds with our own private bathroom.
The tub was nice and deep and the water pressure strong.
We found the room very noisy with the windows open...but that was traffic, not the hotels fault and closing the window blocked out the sound. The cooling system worked well.
The Staff were very helpful and friendly,we were able to check in early.
We noticed the parking lot underneath being regularly checked and it is secure. Fee was 13.00/day which is less than many lots.
The hotel is within walking distance of many amenities..Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Bc Place,Orpheum theatre.
Yes it is dated...but so are my husband and I and that is ok.!
I love the fact that one can be self sufficient whilst staying...Laundry rooms are provided,,fully equipped kitchens...the front desk people gives you a tote of cooking utensils to use when there.
And much of the money obtained from staying at the hotel is given back to women's programs in Vancouver.
