Best hostel I've stayed in!
I loved everything about this place, the staff were great; the guests equally as awesome; the breakfast filled a gap; the bar was really convenient; hostel tours were amazing and very cost effective. Only downside was trying to have a hot shower, most people seemed to be okay but I was unfortunate enough to have a few cold showers whilst there.

Return to Samesun Vancouver
Had the opportunity to return and stay back at Samesun Vancouver. Why? Samesun is located in city centre, close to train from YVR(Airport), clubs, fitness centres and supermarkets. For coffee lovers you have Tim Hortens across the road and an actual coffee shop on the other side. Samesun is also lucky to have full kitchen cooking facilities which is a plus for those on a budget. There has been a lot of new renovations with more shared toilets and showers which is really nice. Common room has had a makeover with the TV lounge removed and loss of pool table. And currently staff are replacing and fitting out the first floor with wooden bunks. Like most Hostels there are daily activities posted for sightseeing around Vancouver, a hockey game or even day rides to and from Cypress, Whistler. An advantage is the Beaver Bar where we meet for events, activities and Breakfast which is free. The staff whether old, new members are always happy to help. A big thanks to Staff: Mat, Doug, Francesco, Jody, Ben at reception plus Charlie and Leon at Maintenance.

Clean, good value & central location
Great choice for a central location, and very clean (especially for a hostel). Excellent included breakfast - bagels, muffins, fruit, juice, boiled eggs. Only negative on this stay was that the room (top floor) was uncomfortably warm. That said, I would definitely stay here again. Good value.

Samesun is fantastic! The dorm beds are little nooks with their own lights and fans, instead of oldschool bunks. The bar downstairs has a great beer selection (and you get a 2-for-1 drink voucher when you arrive). I will definitely stay here again.
