    The central location was great, and the front desk staff were really friendly and helpful with helping me find things to see in the city. Clean and comfortable, good options for the free breakfast and a great place to meet other travellers.

    Excellent service and great staff. I also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and found the beds very comfortable. The cleanliness was on point and you can often see the team wiping down surfaces throughout the day. I'd definitely recommend this place for meeting fellow travellers.

    Pleasantly surprised, found the facilities, bathrooms, bedrooms extremely clean. Slept well, beds were surprisingly comfortable, found staff to be very helpful and obliging. Only downfall was I found the 4 bed dorm room to be a bit small. Location is excellent, very easy to get around, Granville St very interesting with all it’s different characters, have stayed in Granville St many times and have always felt safe. Would I stay at Samesun again. Definitely Yes. Thank you to all the Staff.

    This was my first experience staying in a hostel and overall I think I will be visiting again! Bed was very comfy and the bathroom and showers were clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions I had too. There were a few negatives though during my stay though too. My room was very hot and pretty stuffy with no way to even crack the window open for some fresh air (thank god for the tiny bed fan), the room was very cramped for 6 people, and I saw a few mouse friends in my room.

    it was a great location, central to everything downtown and along bus and subway routes. the bar was a great way to chat and meet people and the staff were friendly and gave great recommendations for places to go. the cleanliness of the hostel could’ve been better. the linens and bedding had a smell to them and i was a little concerned about whether the quilt had been washed. the cleaning staff also entered my room while i was sleeping in the aft and went about cleaning like i wasn’t there.

    You can't check-in your bags behind the counter without a fee, or without going through an online booking website. Asking the staff about it they directed me to the website. Dorm room itself doesn't look like it's been cleaned in a while, EVERYTHING creaks (floors, lockers, beds). Late at night I saw a mouse scurry off into one of the dorm rooms. There are no curtains on the beds so no privacy whatsoever in the dorms, and if someone turns on the light there's no cover from it.
