The prices have surged in the last two years. But they have in Vancouver too so the relative numbers might be better than absolute.

Don't know where first poster was for last 3 years. Prices on abnb for 1 to 2 bedrooms is now in the 2000 USD range or 3x more than 3 years ago. In fact it's same price in the USA or California. Don't see the benefit anymore.

You can get an Airbnb (1 BHK) for $25/night in the romantic zone (this is where the action is), otherwise, you can stay in the residential neighbourhood and pay around $10/night (I stayed in the poor neighbourhood.
Therefore the cost for entire place in downtown comes out to be $750 but you will also get a monthly discount so around $600.
Cost outside the city centre is around $300/month.
