The private double room we had at this hostel was roomy, tidy and bright! We like the communal toilets and showers stalls across the hallway as they are completely enclosed individually with locking doors.

Was there for two nights during the weekdays. The rooms are small but the bed are insanely comfy, I slept pretty well and didn’t hear too much outside noise. The washroom were okay but the showers were fairly clean and it was great that it had all the toiletries installed. Everyone from the staff team are nice as well. Would stay again!

Great stay! I stayed there for three days and really liked it. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There were issues with the check-in process because they had given away my bed to someone else. But they worked it out for me. Breakfast is very good with a variety of bagels, fruit and coffee (though if it starts by 7.30am that would benefit people who have to head out before 8am). Bathrooms are always available and clean with nice locking doors rather than curtains. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Very central and convenient location. Good places nearby to grab a quick bite. The street is noisy and dirty but its not unsafe, its beyond hostel's control anyway. The downside is there is no elevator and you will need to carry your luggage up the stairs. As others have stated its expensive for a hostel but Vancouver is an expensive city and the location of this hostel does not help there much. Its busy hostel and can get noisy at times.

Samesun is located in a central location that is walkable to many tourist sites in Vancouver. The main issues that I had was that there was no elevator and that it can get noisy if your room is at the front of the property.

Located at the heart of downtown—makes it convenient traveling to/walking to Robson St, Rogers Arena, Granville Island, etc from the hostel. Staff were very kind and friendly. Free breakfast offered from 8–10am. Bathrooms and toilets were cleaned daily, towels were offered at no extra cost. And the bathing areas weren't just the showers themselves, but also had ample space to hang toiletries on and dress afterwards. Bunk beds were comfy, each one having three sockets, a night lamp, and a mini-fan. Wi-Fi was very reliable. One minor qualm was that our room had a fan, but no socket to plug it into, which kinda defeats the purpose of having it there. Stayed for three nights in the summer, so a strong working fan would've made for more comfortable sleeping. Otherwise, everything was great! And all guests and staff are diverse, so one shouldn't feel wary about sticking out like a sore thumb! Samesun comes in highly recommended if you need a place to stay while you're in Vancouver.

Samesun Vancouver is close to many of the sites in Vancouver, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The main downside is the noise, especially if you’re room is at the front of the hostel.

This place is awesome, if you're the sort of traveler who doesn't mind sharing a (co-ed) bedroom and (locking) washrooms. Excellent free breakfast, all-you-can-eat. Very easy to make friends with interesting adventurous people from all over the world. Fun neighborhood too, especially Saturday nite.
