SameSun Vancouver is in an excellent location in central Vancouver, very near the Skytrain and less than 15 minutes' walk from BC Place Stadium, charming Granville Island and lively Gastown. It's also surrounded by the city's best clubs, shopping and restaurants. Hostelworld guests have said 'the colours and atmosphere and area are what make this place above and beyond the norm' at this 'fun and fabulous' hostel.

    This hostel is great! The showers are super clean and tall, the kitchen is huge and has tons of shared dishware and ingredients. Free bagels and coffee in the morning is perfect. The bar downstairs is a good atmosphere to hang out in and the food and drinks are very reasonably priced. Also, the location is right in the middle of downtown with lots of stores and restaurants right outside the door. Only a 30min walk to Stanley Park and Granville Island.

    Amazing staff, everything is very clean, great large kitchen, awesome bar, beds are super comfy but pod rooms are small (no problem as it's only somewhere to sleep). Considering it is covid, as a solo traveller the vibe was still pretty good and the staff were friendly so you didn't feel like you were alone. Couldn't ask for a better location right in the middle of everything. Will definitely be coming back!

    Just a quick stop off in between transit, but the staff were friendly; the hostel had a good vibe and was clean and comfortable. Granville Street is really cool too. Will definitely stay here again next time I’m in Vancouver.

    The free breakfast is one bagel with a small pack of cream cheese and jam. The kitchen amenities and the patio space is limited. However the room was clean and with a lot of space although a bit noisy due to street noise.

    Location close to metro, buses and shared bicycles. Easy to walk to a lot of places. Staff mostly nice and helpful. Wifi mostly efficient. The place sometimes felt crowded in common area even in COVID time, but all the measures are taken to keep physical distance between people. I liked that breakfast was provided, but the use of plastic bags produces so much waste. I suggest that bagels are given in plates instead. That would be helpful for the environnement.

    I do think this hostel has potential, but I would not recommend going to it currently. I suspect there are longer-term residents living in the hostel and some were unclean. Moreover, there was a smell similar to urine in the hallways. I was told by a couple people living in Van that Samesun is hosting people transitioning from homelessness and other vulnerable people. I can’t verify this, and I support efforts to assist vulnerable populations, but the hostel didn’t have a healthy vibe.

    The Samsung hostel is perfectly fine for a backpacker looking for an ok hostel with good atmospherer. What bugged me was that after seeing the pictures and a classification of over 9*, I expected a much nicer place. I think it was overpriced for the tiny room we got (private). It was very crowded (literally half a meter from the bed was a noisy mini fridge that could be half the size, a sink that couldn't fit in the bathroom, cheap bedding, etc. I would not give more than 7 stars!

    Keep in mind this review was made in September 2020 during COVID-19. The good: Washrooms and showers are individualized and not openly shared (also quite new). The staff are very friendly. The beds are pretty comfy. The bad: Samesun is located on Granville street which is quite dirty and full of homeless people. (Sketchy area) This is a verrrry large hostel with capacity for up to 300 people, expect huge traffic. Breakfast was very basic (bagel and instant coffee) Loud at night 6.5/10

    The showers were filthy. The bedding was stained. Does anyone ever clean the building? There was no free continental breakfast. There were people shooting up in front of the building. If this is the top rated hostel in Vancouver - holy s**t. Avoid like the plague.
