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 had a great time staying in at Samesun. They have a daily activities board where you can sign up if you would like to join in on their group trip. I only went to one group trip, but it was fun and great way to meet people. I would definitely come back if I am in the area again

    Great stay! Easy check in, easy check out. Best breakfast what I got in a hostel so far. Hostel is in downtown what makes it easy to get everywhere. Also the hostel got daily activities you can join, during the day as sightseeing and during the night to connect with other people.

    Nice basic hostel. Very clean and inexpensive. A bit warm, but that's the only downside really. Great breakfast.

    My first hostel and first time traveling outside of US. I had an amazing experience but the travelers that I meet at the hostel was the best part of my trip to Vancouver. PROS: Breakfast is free and tasty. Beds are great, comes with power outlet, fan and small lamp. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Location is centrally location. Tons of shopping close by and clubs/bars for night life. CONS: The lockers are very small and cannot fit briefcase. I had to stuff all items into locker.

    Really liked staying here. Atmosphere was great, the pod beds are fab they each have a fan and are super comfy. Staff are lovely. Only things are the location is a little sketchy (but nothing awful just a little daunting on arrival). The luggage room is amazing, best one I've ever come across felt safe leaving my stuff there!

    Don’t have enough space to write about our experience but it was quite disappointing and unpleasant for varying number of reasons. Bathrooms were dirty and cramped and way too few for the number of guests per floor. Rooms were cramped and hot even in October with fans on. The noise from outside on the street kept us up both nights. Upgraded to a private room in hopes of getting more sleep only to listen to gross noises all night from bathrooms and people talking. Hallway had a funky smell

    Well it all started with our room, the beds were dirty ( black particles on the bed) The room didn’t have a nice smell to it. The carpeting also had an odour . So I didn’t give this place a chance, to know more about it. I go by first impression’s and we didn’t end up staying. We were able to get one night’s payment back. I’ve stayed in Central and South America for two years. Sorry to I just wasn’t impressed and unfortunately I would recommend this Hostel.
