    Samesun really made my trip to Vancouver so much more fun ! The staff were always super helpful and friendly. The bar downstairs is perfect for meeting other travellers and playing cards. I would recommend going on Damo’s group activities especially capilano national park it was such a great day out, he is a legend. Also beds are really comfortable. 10/10 would recommend

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in, super friendly informative staff , and really awesome security for your valuables during and after check out if you need to store anything. The breakfast is one of the best free breakfasts I've had in a hostel all over the world. And they run some awesome half day tours of some places in and around Van for super cheap $. Awesome atmosphere if you wanna meet people but then some quiet chill areas if you just wanna lay low. Would definitely stay again!

    Did a bunch of the tour activities of the national parks and brewery’s with the legendary Damo, made plenty of new mates and had plenty of drinks. The tables in The Beaver were slightly unstable if people leaned on them to get up, so it made some drinking games more difficult. It was also a bit cold in some spots of The Beaver. But neither of these detracts from the overall excellent experience, will be coming back soon.

    I was very disappointed with the facilities, having to walk down the hallway to use the restroom was very inconvenient. The bathrooms were very tiny, the restrooms or even tinier. And I was traveling with my ski gear and I had to carry 100 pounds worth of luggage up three flights of stairs. Apparently there is no elevator which is very strange especially considering how many floors there are The staff saw that I had two bags, a pair of ski boots, and my laptop and nobody offered to help.

    We stayed for two nights during a snow storm in Vancouver. The alarm went off at 2am for an hour the first night. No explanation, apologies or compensation. They didn't even extend breakfast hours for those w/disrupted sleep. The room was super cold. The staff kept saying maintenance would turn up the heat, but the radiator remained luke warm and the room a chilly 60 degrees. At 100 CAD per night- terrible value. There are nicer hotels for similar price. Pros: Breakfast was great + comfy bedding
