    This hostel had all expected amenities and was in a great location. One of her best features was a built in bar for the guests to enjoy. I was able to meet other people staying in the hostel and feel safe experiencing night life as a solo traveler. Staff was wonderful and helpful. I would have liked the kitchen facilities to be open past midnight (some travelers are jet lagged and hungry late at night!). Otherwise, It was a great experience!

    Didn’t stay long but was great for a night. No elevator though so tricky to lug a suitcase up 3 floors.

    The Samesun was a great environment that provided lots of opportunity to meet fellow travelers. Daily group activities, a cozy bar, and late night games fostered good vibes all around. Staff was always helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean, bathrooms were decently sized. Only downside is the lack of WiFi in the bedrooms and communal area. Always had to go the lobby to map out my day.

    Rooms are clean and beds feel very private, was nice sleeping in a little pod. Breakfast in the morning was great and there were lots of activities provided by the hostel. Not much storage space for food in the kitchen, everything seemed to be taken up by staff food maybe consider a dedicated staff section? WiFi wasn’t worth using as it didn’t load anything, maybe because the hostel was very busy when I was there.

    Super huge hostel, lots of people, activities everyday, great location, nice facilities, great comfy beds, nice bar, good breakfast (bagels and fruits everyday). If you want a chill/ laidback/ intimate hostel, it’s not for you. I felt that the staff was kinda bored/not friendly, maybe because there are so many people travelling here... good experience overall.

    Had a private en-suite room, the double bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were wafer thin. Didn’t seem as though the top blanket had been washed. Bathroom was very basic. A lot of noise outside the room and from upstairs. Overall I would expect a lot more for $165 a night.

    It is extremely loud and can be a bit hard to sleep if you’re a light sleeper. The beds were comfortable for a hostel but if you’re taller than 5’5”, expect to hit your head a lot on the bed frame.
