Clean, good atmosphere, amazing breakfast and good value for money. The staff were super helpful and friendly, and conscious of the fact that we were students with very little money! When we were booking a taxi to leave, the staff refused to book with a taxi company because they tried to add a flat rate of $15 on top of the fare. It's that kind of small gesture which I really appreciated.

Second time staying here. Would definitely recommend it one of the most social, friendly hostels around! :)

Though not the shnazziest of hostels...it gets the job done. The bed was comfortable enough and the room was clean. The lockers were decent sized (don't forget to bring your own lock) and the showers were clean. The front desk staff was very friendly and gave me some great food recommendations. Ample common room space lends itself to meeting other travellers. I would stay here again!

Great location on granville street, moments away from shops, restaurants and bars!! Ok bfast - bagels, toast, fruit, tea/coffee etc. rooms are clean and have good storage, wifi works well and hostel organises activities each day so good to meet people and keep busy. Kitchen ok, didn't use the TV room, showers not bad. Make sure you book hostels in advance especially. In vancouver things get booked up v.quick

Really good location and very clean- my only complaint would be that the room was extremely hot and the fans provided in the room did not do much to help. Otherwise everything was good!

Great location. Breakfast good. A lot better than some of the HI hostels in Canada. Good to see some competition.

Best hostel ever.

Brilliant location and atmosphere. Walking distance to everything and the staff are probably the most useful I've ever met. Definitely would recommend this place

The hostel is very well located in the middle of everything. There is a nice common room, with two computers, but during my stay, both of them were out of use for a whole day, which was rather inconvenient. The cleaning hours of the bathrooms are in the morning and in the evening, which made it quite hard to get ready in the morning, but luckily there were bathrooms on every floor. But I would definitely stay here again!

Fair price, decent breakfast. Very noisy in bedrooms due to lots of noise in the night. Double glazing with air con could solve this. But overall a comfortable stay. Good laundry facilities.

I have stayed at the Samesun Hostel in Vancouver many times and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and go out of their way to help out each backpacker any way they can. The hostel is right in the middle of downtown and is in an excellent central location around many markets, stores, clubs, pubs, restaurants, and other attractions. The hostel has daily activities and a free breakfast. It also includes a fully equipped kitchen, spacious common room, and movie room! I recommend!
