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.

    Bathrooms and showers were great, breakfast was basic but good, staff was very helpful. I stayed in a pod room which was tiny, but I liked the personal fan! Lockers weren’t big enough for your suitcase. My room faced the street and it was *loud* from music outside Thursday-Saturday. I used the fan for white noise and ear plugs and could still hear it. I assume the other rooms were quieter, but I still enjoyed my stay.

    Great location, friendly staff, clean environment, but what makes this hostel really great is the daily activity. I had a really great time exploring the Capilano Canyon and Whiteclyff Park. Our Australian tour guide Damo made it memorable for me because of his great personality. He even took us to viewpoints around Vancouver. I would probably do every single activity provided by the hostel if I stayed here longer.

    Enjoyed how alive the Hostel is, plenty of activities and having a bar downstairs is great. Everything was pretty good but the rooms need some love. The lockers were massive but in rough shape, the bed cover was not the cleanest and the electrical cables on the bedrooms were a bit sketchy. Would love to go back still, I regret not having spent a few more days at Samesun.

    Same Sun had a great range of Tour's each day, good breakfast and different spaces to sit which was good. The location is good to get to other places but it is right in the middle of down town, so very busy (if that's what you're looking for). Overall the rooms and the building itself were a bit old, rooms were small and stuffy and there was a strong paint / chemical smell in the room / sleeping area. As a place to sleep, it wasnt great but the tours, breakfast and people were good

    I stayed in a 6-female dorm with pods; it was EXTREMELY CRAMPED, as though they are forcing you to get out of the room. The limited storage space also forced others to leave their luggage out in the already narrow walkway of the room. Additionally, the beds are made from very thin material; it would shake if someone in the room above was moving. The “locked” access card doors to the hostel almost always open, since they didn’t shut properly.
