Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.

I often stay at thx YWCA Hotel when I go to Vancouver. Always friendly and helpful and i like the fact that the money goes to helping women in need. Even though construction goes on next door for the expansion, it didn't bother me.

This is the only place I stay in Vancouver. It's the cleanest & friendliest! Across the street from BC Place & 2 blocks from Rogers Arena. Everything you want is close. Lots of transportation options.

I try to stay at the YW whenever I am in Vancouver. For a bargain-price, you can get a very nice private room with bath. It's quiet, very clean, and well-located, being within a 10-minute walk of major shopping precincts and a stone's-throw from BC Place. Yaletown great

Heart of downtown Vancouver. Small room but have own sink, shared bathroom & shower outside in the hallway. Best price for the cleanliness and safety. Somewhere between a nice hostel & a hotel. Lots aof great places to eat around and security staff very kind.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
I normally would look for the typical hotel but when I saw that the profits go toward single moms and kids this place caught my attention. The shared hallway bath for our particular room was the only slightly challenging feature at 12:30 am but there are rooms with private

Does this hotel accept visa debit card as payment?
From my experience, VISA debit is treated differently by vendors than a straight credit card. However, I do not know about how they handle that at the Y Hotel. Just ask them. They are very accomodating so I don't think that it will be a problem. Good luck!

Does the cafe sell breakfast food or just coffee and pastries? Is it open all day or just the morning?
Just coffee and it's not very good. There is a Tim Hortons close by as well as restaurants within walking distance

The neighbourhood is safe, directly across from the stadium. The cruise ship area is close enough to walk to, and transit is easy.

I had a large suitcase and I took the SkyTrain. YVR is a terminal stop, so you shouldn't have to worry about getting onto a train full of people. The cars are wide; I believe it was built for the Winter Olympics.

Is there parking?
Yes, the YWCA has an on premise underground parking lot. The number of stalls is limited and when I make my hotel reservations I always request parking as well. The parking rates are a steal (I believe under $20 per day). If you check out other parking rates, they are approaching the $30-$40 per day range.

"I like the higher fnloors but during construction perhaps choose the other side of the building."
"For a few dollars more, take a room with a private bath."
"Single hall bath & single - shared bath room"
"Room was a little chilly but extra blanket did the trick!"
"Need a cafe in there there for coffee and juice only have a vending machine that doesn’t carry a lot of stuff"
