Great hostel! Easy to meet people if you are traveling by yourself. The hostel is in the center of all the bars and clubs. 10 minute walk to Gastown. Also, take the tours with Stephanie. She makes the tour fun. Try to get a room on the first two levels otherwise your room will become hot during the summer. Cheers.

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.

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

Amazing hostel! The staff is the best part. It's so easy to meet people because there is such a large common room and bar. Very clean. Location on Granville street is great an easy to get to bus stops or stations. Only complaint is there are a lot of homeless people around this area and is sometimes scary at night.

SameSun is at a fantastic location right in central downtown Vancouver. The staff were friendly, the kitchen and living room was big, and I never encountered a line up at the bathrooms. It was a bigger hostel than I was used to, but I never felt a lack of security there. Overall a great experience.

I didn´t feel safe with the system they use to lock the dorm's door. It is the traditional way of locking doors. Each guest need to close using the key. Thus, we need to trust that the others will rember to close every time.

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.

Location is perfect! I stayed in a 4 female dorm and it was quiet at night. Some staffs are friendly and helpful, others are not. Facilities are somewhat old, but OK. Bathrooms are not unclean, but I always have to wait for the shower. Breakfast is pretty good!
