I agree most of the reviews which said the hotel is good. But I think they should call themselve YWCA hostel rather than hotel.
The room is easy to book by www.hostelworld.com. Location is great as it is just 2 blocks away from the Sky Train Station (Stadium - Chinatown). And I just took about 10 minutes to walk to the shopping area at Robson Street. 7-eleven, supermarket, McDonald is just at the corner around.
But if u need internet access, make sure you bring your own notebook. The wireless fee is CAD$10/week, but it charge CAD$8/hour if use their laptop at the lobby. Parking is CAD$9/24 hours. Landury is CAD$2/wash or dry + CAD$1.25/wash powder.
The only drawback is the share bathroom. Even the bathroom / Toilet is very clean, but you will not enjoy the shower as the water spray is not wide enough to cover your whole body.
