  • Staff was friendly and very helpful, facilities were well beyond what I was expecting for 33$ a night. I felt safe the entire time I was there, and felt no insecurities leaving my luggage there during the day. Location is perfect, very central. Saved lots of money with the included breakfast that The Beaver puts on. I'll definitely stay at this hostel again, and recommend it to friends.

  • I think, the wash rooms need to be more spacious.

  • I would have like to seen better common areas. Maybe a fussball table or something. Rooms were clean.

  • Crews are nice. People are nice. Everything was nice in Vancouver. If there had been more activities that hostel hosts, it would've been better than I felt. But it was still nice. And don't forget to taste the beer they recommend in the beaver. It's worth staying for at least a week

  • It was a nice vibrant atmosphere. There were many opportunities to meet people. I was impressed with the frequency of the cleaning of the bathrooms. However quite often there was a wait for showers and sinks, toilets less frequently.

  • We were at Samesun last week end, and it was just awesome! The rooms clean, beds comfortable, nice room mates and delicious breakfast. You just need to walk out the building and stand directly in front of all the bars and clubs. We didn't go to the hostel bar, it seemed nice and fun though! We'll check it out this week end when we'll go again ;)

  • A really handy location to downtown Vancouver and to public transport to see the area! One downside of this is the noise but it's definitely bearable. The staff were really friendly and the facilities all seemed clean, I'd definitely recommend staying here when travelling in Vancouver :)

Christmas doesn't get much better than wandering around a snow-coated market with a hot mulled wine in hand. The smell of roasted chestnuts and the twinkling lights will put even a Grinch into the Christmas spirit.
