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.

    I really enjoyed my stay. The check in process was really smooth and straightforward. The staff are really friendly too. I also found the mattress to be extremely comfortable and I enjoyed the free breakfast that was surprisingly still being provided. I will definitely be back in the future.

    Easy check in. Can see it's all been recently redecorated. Room was nice - Bed has charging points and lights which is a good feature. Matt? was very welcoming at check in. Very enthusiastic and energetic for an older guy. The guy in toque was super informative. Covid protocol at check in is reassuringly thorough and they check guests to make sure masks are worn etc. Plenty hand sanitizer around too Breakfast was good for what they can offer during these times (it's a collect only take away).

    Great hostel.super location. The free breakfast is great! The kitchen is super well equipped and never crowded. Maybe a result of Covid? The hostel was lovely and the atmosphere was good for meeting people, all things considered. Very clean facilities. Good water pressure in the showers. Plug next to the bed. Really no complaints.

    Rooms and bathrooms are rather tight, kinda glad it's a pandemic and rooms aren't filled with the capacity of 6 people. Staff is very nice and helpful, location great. Common area could use some disinfection wipes for tables to clean before and after use.

    The hostel is clean and quiet, and staff are friendly. Different atmosphere from normal, mostly due to the fact that everyone in the hostel is working and it's a pandemic.

    It was a good place to stay. I stayed there for a week. It was convenient as its located right in the heart of the city. Just that the street seemed pretty unsafe as you will see many junkies outside sleeping on the streets. Facility is bit old they came to clean the rooms and washrooms everyday. They have kitchen facility, laundry (but is bit expensive), towel facility.

    I stayed at SameSun Banff and was very impressed. BUT SameSun Vancouver during a pandemic is not the place to be. Staff does everything they can to stay COVID compliant — but the guests were very slack when I was there April 2021.

    Decent Place. Bit of a rough area. Staff were decent although not very friendly, especially the ladies serving the bagels and coffee. Talking badly about clients! The one shining star was a young Lady on staff named Tara. Very friendly. Exactly what a hostel hostess should be. They have times twice a day where you cannot access the kitchen or your food in the fridge. So if you wake up in the middle of the night and are hungry you have to brave the hordes of homeless and walk granville at night.
