Was meant lo stay here for 2 nights, but due to a missed flight I only popped in for 1 night and didn't see a great deal of the hostel. Hostel has all the facilities you would expect & need. My room was quite messy & smelly due to my roommates living & working there, so that was the only... More

This is a nice, well-kept, hostel, located just steps from downtown Kelowna, as well as a lovely park and beach. The staff here is really nice and friendly, and they keep the place clean and well-maintained. Of particular note is Laura, the lovely front desk girl who is always so friendly and helpful - not to mention a real cutie,... More

Samesun Kelowna is not one of the best there, it is the best. It is located close to everything in town. I loved the idea that they have that you have to have a good time in the hostel, to meet nice people and enjoy you stay there, even if you only are going for one night. Cool!

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay while we were in Kelowna for a wedding on June 27th and 28th. We couldn't find a lot available so we decided to stay at this hostel. It was $100 per night which is outrageous for the accomodations we received and this was after they tried to charge us $135 a... More

This place was a perfect location in the heart of downtown and minutes from the park and beach. A huge well stocked kitchen with free pancake breakfast every morning. They had a big backyard area with BBQs and activities going on often making it easy to meet other people but were also very good about keeping it quiet at night... More

Close to the beach and downtown shops and bars. Artwork decorating the hostel is distinctive and welcoming. Lots of Aussies! Popular stopping point from Vancouver for tour groups on the way to Alberta. Supermarket a few blocks away. Bus station is a little way out of town and requires a local bus transfer. Pickup from the airport. Good kitchen/table tennis/laundry/tv... More

This was a decent hostel, nothing special though the big kitchen was pretty nice. Good location basically across the street from the town centre. They had free parking. Room was slightly small, though with only 3 people, none with big backpacks or suitcases, in a 6-bed room it was perfectly manageable. The girls' showers/toilets were out of order when we... More

Spent a week here and loved it, the place has a great vibe for people travelling alone or with company. Staff especially James, and Max were awesome. Very helpful front desk and plans each night for activists. The facilities are great with a spa, alfresco area and comfy couches in the theatre room.(which also has Netflix) Wifi was terrible, however... More

Lovely tidy rooms but a little bit cramped especially with each guest having either a large pack or suitcase and not many places to put them. Friendly and organised staff and the guests that were already there made us feel welcome. Walking distance to shops and bars.

Overall, I found very good value in service, cleanliness, and price. The personnel was fairly quick to respond. I would rate the Same Sun youth hostel a ****. I also liked the special lunch/dinner events offered there or around town.
