We stayed in the double with a private shower. It was super clean. safe and secure and the bed was comfortable. The location was great-we walked to different areas of the city-Yaletown, Chinatown and Gastown. We rented a car and had to pay $13 to park but in Vancouver that is a deal-you have to pay to park everywhere. The lack of free wifi was the only drawback. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the street was great but could be noisy at night-especially when there is an ev...

This was the 3rd visit to this hotel for us. We took the room with 5 single beds and it's own bathroom. I guess they rent it to kids or sports teams because it smelled like a hockey bag in the room. Nevertheless, this hotel is a great location to stay at if you're attending a game at BC Place or a hockey game. It's a 5 minute walk to either place and the rooms are priced reasonably. We had no complaints with our rooms on other occasions.

What a great place to stay. We have stayed in both the double rooms with hallway facilities and also the double rooms with shared facilities. We found the rooms with hallway facilities had more room to spread cases/clothes etc and had no trouble with having to wait to use shower/toilet facilities. Kitchen equipment is provided if needed. Perfectually situated to get to all transport, YaleTown, Gas Town, Up town, Downtown, all walkable. Big Red bus goes past the front door. The staff are really friendly and helpful.

More of a basic hotel than the Y I was expecting. Great beds and comfy, snuggly duvets. Small rooms but with a bed, a fridge and a sink, (and optional TV) , what else do you need? Well, some bright spark came up with the idea of supplying a generous box with kitchen equipment containing pots, plates and cutlery- fabulous!

Situated in a safe area with plenty of places to eat nearby, from steak to noodles, and with wonderful friendly and helpful staff. Also only $7 taxi to the Amtrak train station for early morning departures

Only a couple blocks from the nearest SkyTrain station, the location of this hotel is a major plus. You have Robson street within walking distance, China Town and Gas Town are a within walking distance. Basically you can't go wrong with this location.

The staff is amazing. The website speaks the truth when they claim to have friendly staff. Each person was pleasant to talk with regardless of the hour and willing to help with concerns.

Rooms were small but very comfortable and clean. Didn't have any trouble with "neighbors" and the access to full kitchens, laundry rooms, and television lounges were a huge bonus!

Down to earth environment, ultra friendly staff, superb location, absolutely brilliant place to rest your head while in Vancouver and "Worth Checking Into."

Room Tip: The rooms facing East towards BC Stadium has a great view!
