  • I had a wonderful stay here! The showers are some of the better ones I've encountered in hostels- good water pressure, privacy and temperature control. Bagels for breakfast was different than the standard cereal but very good, other choices were also available. Rooms are small, but okay. I would caution you that they do not allow any outside bedding whatsoever, and I was told to pack up my extra blanket until I left. This isn't a huge issue, as the blankets given are warm enough.

  • Awesome people, location and facilities. Pretty big place, rooms are nice, everything's clean. The bar downstairs is great - cheap beer on tap, food, fun events like beer pong nights/etc. Has everything you could need like laundry, big kitchen, etc. Sign up for all of the activities/trips - they're fun and the staff/guides are all great people. I could go on but yeah, just stay here, it's one of the best hostels I've stayed in.

  • Love the SameSun. If I'm ever back in Vancouver, this is definitely where I'll be staying. Everything was top notch from the staff to the facilities to the food and drinks in the Beaver. Just a wonderful experience.

  • I stayed at the SameSun Backpacker in August for a half marathon race. The staff was always friendly and helpfull and made sure only guests were allowed in the hostel area. It is centrally located in the downtown area and its a short walk to the skytrain which can get you anywhere. For the price it included a pretty good breakfast of bagels, fruit, and oatmeal in the restaurant below. The rooms were clean and the bed were comfortable but no a/c in rooms. Bathrooms were clean. I would stay again!
