The YWCA is a very good budget priced hostel with excellent facilities an d helpful staff. For those who want to self cater the kit kens are well equipped and pleasant to sit and eat. The central location makes this an ideal place to start a Canada holiday.

Room Tip: If you want to self cater ask for a room on the same floor as one of the kitchens (there are three k...

The staff are so friendly and helpful.The cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms are spotless.
Offers internet and all necessary facilities. The location is perfect and the city center, close to the best markets and ROBSON street.

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.
