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.

    Comfy beds, friendly staff and breakfast included. The breakfast is surprisingly good and plentiful and there never seemed to be issues with people struggling for seating. Some of the rooms can get a bit hot and with the windows open the noise can get bad from the street, so don't always expect a quiet nights sleep. There's regular organised events and the bar has a decent selection of beer and other drinks.

    I really enjoyed my time here. I met so many awesome people at the bar. Everything was clean, check in/out was easy, cool employees, and I was stoked on the central location. I traveled on my bicycle. As someone who has had their bike stolen, I feel very uncomfortable when I cannot lock the frame to something metal. So when I had to lock my wheel to a piece of wood I was bummed, even with the camera. And the wood does not really accommodate u-locks. Thankfully I had a chain lock, too.

    The entire staff was amazing!! They made our trip even better. The breakfast was ok. Not a lot of options. The location is amazing. Best place to stay if you don’t have a car. The hostel also does a daily trip to a location in Vancouver. It was a great trip!!! So happy we stayed at Samesun!

    Samesun is in a very central location, and the only time we needed our car was to get to Shannon Falls north of Vancouver. Everything was clean, the dorm bed pods were private and well-designed, and the mattress was very comfortable. Bathrooms single with full walls between each cubicle. Towels were complimentary. Granville is obscenely loud on Friday and Saturday nights, bring earplugs. Staircase from lobby to first floor is long. Would not recommend to anyone disabled. Parking nearby cost $$$$

    The hostel was in a good position downtown. If you enjoy the nightlife it's great, but if you are looking for a quieter nighttime location, best to look elsewhere. Good variety of good at breakfast, cooking and laundry facilities. Plenty of people from all parts of the world and all age groups

    Pretty basic hostel, I think I preferred the HI across the street which had a more welcoming vibe.
