I'd stay here again
My first experience in a hostel. Guests were quiet and friendly, there was a locker in the room and secure luggage storage. I didn't have time to enjoy the free basic breakfast but did make an effort to take advantage of the happy hour. Good food, excellent staff and clean facilities.

8/10 Very good

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.
