Hostelworld says

SameSun Vancouver is in an excellent location in central Vancouver, very near the Skytrain and less than 15 minutes' walk from BC Place Stadium, charming Granville Island and lively Gastown. 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.

Property Description

Daily activities led by our friendly and fun staff will help make your visit to Vancouver memorable and nightly events in our bar will keep the fun going! We’re in the middle of all the action in the Granville Entertainment District so you’re just steps from it all. Enjoy the city beaches, stroll through the historic district of Gastown, or take a bike ride around Stanley Park. Within walking distance from our Vancouver hostel you can enjoy many urban delights, from sport, music, art, food, drinks and nightlife! And when your day is done, you can grab a beer and meal in our Beaver Bar (don’t miss the Korean Fries!) or just hang out in our lounge.

All dorm beds feature a light, shelf and outlets and we now feature Pod beds in our 6 bed dorms making for a more intimate and comfortable sleep. We also recently renovated all our bathrooms so you can have that soothing shower in a fresh and modern environment.

    Superb

    The pod-type beds are incredible! Honestly haven’t slept this well in a hostel (Or anywhere else) in a looong time. The beds are super comfy and the curtains give you a great deal of privacy but also block out sound and light. The facilities are clean and the showers are super spacious. The free breakfast was insanely lush for hostel breakfast, the location is prime, the staff is friendly. I’d fully recommend this place.

    Fabulous

    I had a great experience spending two nights at Samesun! The hostel plans daily activities and with a bar next to the reception, it’s super easy to meet people and make friends. Tours are well organized and mostly free! I made a lot of friends. I stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. Shared bathrooms are pretty dirty, but do get cleaned daily. Hallway and the room have weird odors and walls are super thin & can hear everything happening outside. Otherwise, amazingly central location!

    Good

    Great location, 15-20min walk from most attractions in central Van and only 5-10mins from main train line, with bus routes outside the front door. Building is a little old and decrepit, and bathrooms looked like they were not cleaned regularly - hair and grime in showers especially. Free breakfast is good and ktichen area was messy but cosy. Not as nice as Samesun Banff by a long shot, but the Van Samesun is clearly a bigger operation. Pay for what you get, this is a social hostel not luxury.

    This is the worst hostel I've stayed in and I've stayed in over 20 hostels. The bed was really old and dirty. The springs in the mattress were completely broken, the sheets were yellow tinted because they were so old, the top bunk was so low that you couldn't even sit up on the bed. Everything in this hostel was old, slightly broken and dirty. I felt so uncomfortable that I only stayed one night and lost $30.
