I wanted to stay in a "regular" hotel but there was none available in the area I wanted to stay that didn't cost an arm and a leg. This was my first experience in a hostel. I was pleasantly surprised, and will definitely stay in one again. But, I will spring for the extra few bucks for a bathroom in the room. The down the hall thing wasn't worth it […] .

"Great location and price"

Great little hostel in the centre of Van. Nice common room, private film room was great for relaxing and the bar was good with a lively atmosphere and good drink deals. I liked the moose that greets you at the entrance, nice touch! Would recommend to people wanting a cheap and social place to stay

I have stayed here twice now and enjoyed it both times. The staff are friendly and helpful, it's always very clean and depending what room you get, you can get a really good nights sleep. It has all of the facilities you would want at a hostel, along with a great bar with cheap and tasty food if you can't be bothered cooking. The daily activities hosted / organised by Stephanie are also a lot of fun and a great way to see the sights of Vancouver and hang out with other travellers.

Nice place to stay, its clean enough has ok facility's, rooms are big enough and the staff are friendly. I is a bit more of a party hostel so if you want to sit down and do some knitting this place might not be for you.

Nice backpackers, helpful staff. Very colourful and comfortable. Rooms will feel cramped if full. Nice bar area for breakfast and serve food throughout the day too. Good location and lots of activities organised at the hostel creates fantastic opportunity to meet and get to know people

Awesome, comfortable backpackers and The Beaver bar downstairs does awesome cheap food and is great for meeting good people. The activities are awesome as well. Shout out to Steph for the free tour, hope your boss is still giving you free beers :)
"Cheap, clean & efficient."

I stayed in a couple of hostels during my trip to North America (Canada & US) and Samesun was easily the best experience of them all. It was comparable in price to most others, had way better free breakfast every morning, the cleanliness was better and the friendly staff didn't disappoint. Its location - downtown Vancouver - couldn't be better as it's in the heart of it all, with the nearest SkyTrain only a few mins away. Wifi speeds and availability is great, kitchen is clean and well-equipped while the bar downstairs caters to all social needs. I stayed with them on two separate occasions and had absolutely no issues either time. Highly recommended for solo travellers!

Great place. I have been and stayed here many times, great atmosphere. well worth the stay. Classic backpackers, lots of mid twenty somethings. great place to meet people and they do greath tours f the city every day.

breakfast was AWESOME and the people were really nice. very safe and secure. they helped with me with my bags and made sure the rooms and bathrooms were clean everyday. cool outting schedule too, something to do everyday
Bed was pretty much a park bench. Security to the rooms was non-exsitant. My door was unlocked when I got there and the window was cracked and unlocked. And I couldn't lock it. Stayed with four people in my group and we could have split a room at the Best Western down the road for cheaper and it would have been cleaner and more comfortable.
"Excellent backpackers when you're young and traveling, be prepared to make life long friends"

I arrived into the Samesun back in August 2008 (a while again) but I can confirm that I've made life long friends here and to this day still see a lot of them. I was traveling alone as a 24 year old and the best thing about this place is the 'beaver' bar. Met two guys the first night and ended up traveling with them for 4 months. This was quite possibly one of the best times of my life and I'd recommend this to any young person traveling if heading to Canada.
