“Nice Place!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We had a room with private bath. The room was clean & decorated well. The room was on the small size, but comfortable. Bathroom had shower & toilet. Sink was within the room and there was a hair dryer. Good amount of cable channels on tv. Good convenient location - there was a SevenEleven and McDonalds within walking distance. Public Library nearby which had internet. Internet stations at hotel, but seemed expensive for number of minutes. There was a notebook that had info about the hotel, etc in the room. Kitchen area & laundry available on different floors - There is a coffee shop next door so we got morning coffee there. Staff helpful and friendly. Would stay again if in the area. Stayed one night on way to cruise.

The hotel is very comfortable to stay. The location of it is in a charming place. It is just beside of the BC place and the BC place stadium is viewable from the room window. Its a convenient hotel which is near to the main attractions of the downtown Vancouver. Lastly, the hotel staffs are friendly and room service is good.

Stayed here with a group from university for about 4 nights.

Couldn't comment on the pricing as it was all included in my trip.
Internet is not included, Wi-Fi is about $3 a day if I can remember.. possibly more to use one of their internet terminals.

Beds were fairly comfortable, made daily. We had our own bathroom with shower, mini fridge, central AC and flat screen TV with cable.
Rooms ranged from three to six beds for our group.
Very convenient and secure security to access room floors.

Staff were friendly in all interactions, the lobby has a nice seating area both inside and outside to hang around in.

Can be very noisy at night from street noise, otherwise very quiet.
Otherwise, well located with regards to downtown Vancouver and particularly to BC Place (literally across the street). Easy access to Yaletown, Robson Street shopping, Gastown and beyond. Main Street/Chinatown SkyTrain is about a block or two away.

Overall the Wi-Fi really made a difference - our group needing it to complete assignments along our journey. I would book elsewhere in future travels provided I now know it costs money when so many other hotels offer it for free.

Stayed here for only one night. I didn't reserve the rooms with semi-private bathroom, and got this nice double room with two beds. Overall a decent room worthy of the price. No free wifi in the room. Located near Yaletown, BC place, skytrain station and gastown.

Room Tip: As other suggested, choose the floors without lounges/kitchen to avoid noise.

This Chic is used to Sheraton but was very happy with the YWCA while travelling with Family x 4 our first room was a little small but totally fine for the price and clean, so clean it was great, we had an extra night after returning from Victoria with my husband on crutches! so they moved us to bigger room which made getting around the room so much easier, great to have fridge in the room would have loved a kettle but thats not a major, clean sheets, towels and amazing staff on the front desk, safe and secure would highly recommend if only other cities would have these hostels for families

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be good

My sister and I had a wonderful stay at the YWCA Hotel this past week. The gentleman at the front desk for our check-in was very helpful and nice (even giving us a map and putting Xs through E. Hastings!). The room was absolutely spotless. We had a few suggestions and put them on the comment card in the room, but there wasn't anything major. The hotel is close to everything you could want - arenas, Skytrain, Robson, Chinatown. We walked everywhere but to Metrotown. They have a student rate that is very useful to a college student with a limited budget. We will definitely stay again the next time we're in Vancouver.

Room Tip: We weren't facing BC Place, but we got a view of a nearby building reflecting the Place's gl...
