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.

    Would absolutely recommended staying at the Samesun. A lot better facilities and cleaner than other hostels in the area. Great central location, close to everything. Free breakfast included too!

    The hostel is in a great location - easy to access everything you need and public transport to get you to other locations. Very clean hostel and felt secure, especially with our luggage storage and at night when coming back. The bedroom was fairly basic but comfortable with plenty of fans to keep you cool as it was quite hot in Vancouver at the time. Great food downstairs, and the staff are really friendly and welcoming.

    Great hostel right in the middle of everything. It was the first hostel I had ever stayed in nine years ago, left such a good impression that I made sure to stay here again. My partner even got to have his first hostel experience here and he was extremely impressed!

    Overall this was a good hostel experience! It is very clean and has lockers to put your valuable things. It is centrally located downtown. The only downfall I had was that while the location was good because it was downtown, there’s a lot of homeless people around. Perhaps there should be some added security getting into the building just in case.

    Stayed during the summer, and the rooms get extremely hot during the day. We had to sleep with the door propped open as the individual fans for each bed were not effective in keeping the room cool. I didn’t realise there was no elevator, so was caught off guard that I had to lug my suitcase up 3 flights of stairs! 3.5/5 Stars 😊

    The beds need curtains, there aren't enough shelves in the beds, no air conditioning in the rooms, the showers and bathrooms could use more shelves and hooks. Huge kitchen, lots of places to sit and hang out. I've been to a lot of hostels and this one is NOT very great. I think it only thrives because of the location downtown. If the beds were better and more light proof etc this would be a big improvement. If you don't like partying don't come here. You can hear the music playing all night

    The common areas were not clean enough for me and the street on which the hostel is located is very noisy. But the breakfast was good.

    It was ok, great central location but noisy until late at night. No ac in the rooms during a heatwave, but there is ac in the hallways for some odd reason. The stairs and bathrooms smell like urine, showers were mostly broken on my floor head to go to another floor to fight for showers along all the travelers. The bar was nice and I s appreciated the basic breakfast offered. I didn't attend events can't speak to that. Overall it was fine but nothing special

    The rooms felt safe and it was great to have an available kitchen and space to sit and eat. Unfortunately since it was so hot and the rooms did not have a/c or large fans, the room was extremely uncomfortable and impossible to sleep in. This was the main issue we encountered.
