Very small rooms and common area. Loud room to the street. Toilets far away at end of hallway

Perfect stay!
Lovely and clean stay! Friendly staff and very helpful. The tour guides were lovely for the extra activities if one wanted to participate. Breakfast was enough and the downtown noise should be expected by anyone staying downtown. Would definitely recommend of traveling solo and wanting to have some interaction with others.

As a solo traveller staying at a good hostel like Samesun makes life just a bit better. The staff, the accommodations (note ... if you don't like noise, avoid rooms over the bar area if you are a light sleeper .. or bring ear plugs). The kitchen that we all share is fantastic and you might even have a mini pot luck with sharing!

2/10 Poor

This property is HORRIBLE value for the money. I had to pay $180/one night in this hole of a place…..the area surrounding the hostel looks and feels like Baghdad. The staff at the hostel thought they were cool dudes and provided little to no customer service. I hated staying in this property and will NEVER do so again. Pay the extra $20-$30 and stay in a real hotel where you actually feel safe, trust me

Great staff, friendly guests, would recommend and stay there again. Heads up the area around the hotel seems to be in transition: lots of new restaurants (e.g. Jollybee), but also some sketchy characters walking around. Wouldn't say dangerous, but good to stay alert.

Everything was excellent! We could have a free breakfast every day. It is located on Granvil St so it is so easy to go anywhere. Besides, all staffs are kind. The best condo ever in Vancouver.
