I stayed for 3 weeks whilst in Vancouver on business. I had some reservations given some of the reviews, but I've come to realise that some folk will find an excuse to complain about anything! I don't think you can find a short term sublet, nor a hotel room, for this kind of price in Vancouver. The room was clean, awesome shower, comfy sofa bed. The front desk was always manned and I never felt threatened, even as a woman travelling alone (and returning back to my room very late/ in the early hours). The staff were friendly and helpful. Yes, there were some odd ball characters, but there was a real mix if business folk, students, holiday makers and regular (really nice) people that lived there too. If I was to offer a suggestion for improvements it would be access to a kettle, toaster, cutlery, crockery and a pot and pan or two- the kitchen had a hob, microwave, tea towel, but I had to buy some essentials from the dollar store, which was fine but a bit of a pain when you know it's only for 3 weeks use. But I'd still go back!

We chose this place for its great location. It was clean and bright and the staff were all friendly and helpful. We were disappointed that the pool wasn't available due to construction, but were very pleased with the garden area.
It was a little odd to have to go pick up our required utensils for the kitchen.

All in all it was a good clean place in a great area for a great price!

I moved here from out of province and was hoping not to sign a year's lease so this seemed a perfect place. Since I have been here, the laundry facilities have been moved to the parking garage, and don't have hot water, the place is a construction site with constant banging and construction noise, the common areas are now closed and under construction. The rent includes Wi-Fi, but access is spotty at best, so if you rely on it for schoolwork, you have to go to a coffee shop or stay and suffer your computer freezing up with limited or no access at busy times. Essentially, you are paying to live in a room, which has been recently refurbished and is clean and bright, but is also the size of a closet. The website lists a lot of services but the pool is closed (for the season) and neither of the hot tubs are working, there is no gym here (although the website claims there is a fitness room). It is depressing living here.

I lived at Shaughnessy Village for 3 months, because of a project I had to work on. It's redecorated and really bright (even when you have a room to the north). The rooms themself were small but big enough for one person. It was very clean and a room service was once a week includet. Everything was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.
It's not far away from Downtown and there is also a very good connection for the public transport very near the hotel. About 10 minutes on foot away, was a big mall where you were able to buy groceries and go to a yoga place (wich was awesome). There are also other shops and restaurants within walking distance.
The area is very nice too and you are able to have nice walks around the neighbourhood and the close parks, even the beach is very close and of course Granville Island, wich is also a very nice place.
I really enjoyed it to stay there!

this place caters to those in desperate need. Be it family of people in the hospital or those on the edge of social assistance and mental illness. Its a strange place that caters to low income because of the price. Strange staff at the front desk, been there for years. Feels like its a cult or something, seriously wierd place and not kept clean, cigerettes and pot smoke everywhere. If you can afford to avoid this place, by all means, keep going. Some reno is going on too now and i think they believe they no longer have to clean so what was already bad is even worse.
