"Awesome experience while staying here"
This is the best place in Vancouver downtown you can stay for what ever you pay for. This place is right in middle of Granville Street which is disco/party hub. Best place to stay even if you are travelling in group. You get to meet so many new people from all around the world. I shared my room with six other people all of them super nice.

"Glad I took a chance on them"
Had a great time but it is a Hostel type hotel. People were really friendly and there was always something going on. Location is great for being right down in the middle of everything and within walking distance to BC Place and the waterfront. Staff were always great and always treated me like a friend The only negative I had was that I had a really smelly roommate and somedays it was a little ripe in the room and wish there would of be a overhead fan or AC to help the smell

"Typical hostel experience, but noisy!"
Basically, the hostel itself is ok: clean, accommodations typical of what one expects with a hostel, decent shared bathrooms, friendly and helpful staff, and a good breakfast. The problem is that it is adjacent to a night club, so if one is staying there in nicer weather when the windows must be kept open (there is no AC), noise can definitely be an issue. Honestly, the price and location are awesome, but I don't think I would stay here again unless I was visiting Vancouver in cooler weather.

Excellent location, close to SkyTrain, bus stops and walking distance to many restaurants and stores. Breakfast was good, buffet style with coffee, tea, bagels, muffins, toast and fruit salad. Clean bathrooms, but could use an upgrade...toilets separate from showers would be nice.

"Perfect Experience!"
I booked this solo trip last minute because I really just needed to get away for a few days. I don't think I've ever had a better hostel experience. They give you a towel to use, the room was very clean and comfortable, and restrooms/showers are very clean. The staff was absolutely amazing in every way. The activities during the day as well as at The Beaver in the evening were awesome and a lot of fun; helped me meet some great people and have a time that I'll remember forever. I honestly think I'd come back to Vancouver not just because I loved the city (because I did!), but so that I could stay here and have another memorable experience! Thank you, Samesun!

This hostel is right downtown so it is easy to get anywhere. Lots of shopping and restaurants in the area as well as grocery stores. And a casino about 10 blocks away. And all kinds of public transportation including a subway to and from the airport.

I just needed a place to sleep after riding in the RSVP. This place met that need as well as a hot shower and breakfast in the morning. The first floor of the building is a bar and music was playing into the wee hours of the morning, but I was so tired it didn't keep me awake. It was clean and secure with no extras but sometimes that is just what one needs.

"Cheap and right downtown"
Better than I expected for the price. We stayed in a private room and although it was small, it was nice to have our own bathroom (even if the door hit the bed frame when you opened it). Everyone on staff was friendly and had good recommendations for food and night life events. There's also a little bar/restaurant on the first floor with a different dinner special for under $5 every night. The neighborhood gets a little sketchy at night so I'd recommend indoor parking.

I came in for one night before running Seawheeze, a half marathon. The hostel is in a great location and os well equipped with a bar, common room and appropriate sized mushrooms. The bank Ned was comfy and the oversized lockers are great. Location on Granville puts you right at the centre of nightlife and dining options.

Good natured and helpful staff. Hostel generally clean and fairly secure. Easy to get to know other travellers at free breakfast in adjoined pub and in common room. No a/c in bedroom levels, fans only - if they work (reported 313 room fan didn't work - not fixed). Good feel to the place, unlike some on Main St and Cambie St. Located on one of the main shopping streets and near major public transport routes.

"It'll do for the price."
I stay here when in Vancouver for concerts. I'm a bit older than most of the guests and I don't like noise and party scenes, and I find this place pretty good n terms of being strict about that. It depends on who is in your dorm of course but overall even this grumpy old gal can stand it. Take flip flops to wear to the bathroom and a lock for your dorm locker.

Same Sun Backpackers Lodge was very des :}. The hotel staff were extremely resourceful and friendly. The hostel featured it's own pub, restaurant, lounge area, kitchen and laundry room. They also had a list of weekly activities in which gusts could take part of throughout many beautiful tourist destinations in Vancouver! The only thing I didn't like about the hostel despite being well maintained and cleaned every day was the unpleasant smell emitting from the stairwell going upstairs to the rooms. Other than that it was great! Highly recommended =D

I stayed at this hostel on a whim waiting for friends to meet up with me in Vancouver, I was so impressed by the staff, cleanliness & the charm of the building that I stayed for an extra night. It is within walking distance to Vancouver's Art Gallery. Quick hike to the harbour, Stanley park & Granville Island. Bathrooms were shared but kept in good condition, cleaned twice a day. I absolutely loved this place and if I happen to travel back through Vancouver I will definitely see if there is a bed open at Samesun again.

"Best run hostel I've seen in a long time!"
They run a tight ship here and that's exactly what you need in a backpacker hostel with so many people coming and going. I was pleasantly surprised how well run this place is. I booked a private room with my own bathroom and although sparse, my room was perfect (it's summer, so I cannot say whether it would be the same in the winter). It had everything I needed, a firm bed, clean linen, dark curtains, clean bathroom, TV, desk and lamps.

It was a great place to stay close to Yaletown. If you are young you will love this place. It was packed full of young kids that were having lots of fun. The sound proofing is good so you don't hear the noisy bar/restaurant when in your room. Only thing was we were across from the women's washroom so the sound of that door opening and closing all night was annoying enough for us to wear earplugs. Then it was great.

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.

Das Hostel liegt direkt im Zentrum von Vancouver inmitten der Bar und Clubszene und nahe des gay Viertels. Das Hostel ist etwas in die Jahre gekommen trotzdem recht sauber und alles funktioniert.

Great place. Nice and quiet. The private room is more than ok standard for that price. It's just a few minutes walk from one of many popular places to visit down town. If you ask me, the best location in the city. The breakfast is good. Better than most the bakcpacker places I have visited through the world. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and the security is perfect. No one beside the people who paid for a room and owns a key can enter. The only thing that could make this place better is the soda they offer. It tasted very funny and the dinners they offer. Its fairly cheap, but taste the same.
