First hostel experience
Had a 14hr layover and it was 20 min away on the sky train. $35 room for the night, nice bar downstairs, lots of friendly people staying there as well.

safe, quality, well staffed and recommended.
Since last staying three years ago the facilities have been improved, it was good then and it's good now, I just wish it had been a better price as its close to the same rate as a hotel or airbnb now.

Best hostel I've stayed in!
I loved everything about this place, the staff were great; the guests equally as awesome; the breakfast filled a gap; the bar was really convenient; hostel tours were amazing and very cost effective. Only downside was trying to have a hot shower, most people seemed to be okay but I was unfortunate enough to have a few cold showers whilst there.

Return to Samesun Vancouver
Had the opportunity to return and stay back at Samesun Vancouver. Why? Samesun is located in city centre, close to train from YVR(Airport), clubs, fitness centres and supermarkets. For coffee lovers you have Tim Hortens across the road and an actual coffee shop on the other side. Samesun is also lucky to have full kitchen cooking facilities which is a plus for those on a budget. There has been a lot of new renovations with more shared toilets and showers which is really nice. Common room has had a makeover with the TV lounge removed and loss of pool table. And currently staff are replacing and fitting out the first floor with wooden bunks. Like most Hostels there are daily activities posted for sightseeing around Vancouver, a hockey game or even day rides to and from Cypress, Whistler. An advantage is the Beaver Bar where we meet for events, activities and Breakfast which is free. The staff whether old, new members are always happy to help. A big thanks to Staff: Mat, Doug, Francesco, Jody, Ben at reception plus Charlie and Leon at Maintenance.
