    Samesun was a great hostel, great vibes! Clean, AWESOME location w/a bunch of bars/restaurants/shops, and beach super near. We felt super safe, both in terms of our stuff being secure and covid safe. I did a Zoom job interview while here and I got the job!!! All thanks to Samesun hahah. Shouts out to Joe. Made us feel super welcome, great guy!

    I got to the hostel on Thursday-Saturday with a friend. Due to COVID it was sort of empty. Which I liked because I was scared there was going to be a lot of people. Everyone wore their mask, they have a patio to smoke in. Staff was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here. Great price too!!!

    This was the weekend vacation my soul needed! I love the community-feel this hostel has and the people I became friends with. My favorite part about the weekend was Sunday morning yoga after checking out. No one else from the hostel showed up to the session so it was just me and Mike, which was awesome because I've never had a personal yoga instructor! I will definitely be coming back for another close-knit weekend getaway.

    Can't beat the location. Literally a block from the beach. Incredibly affordable. I paid $25 when I stayed so that's amazing Only negative thing i gotta say is the short haired front desk person (not sure if guy or girl) was super confrontational. Was trying to have a conversation with another hostel person and they kept interjecting. But other than them it was pleasant.
