This place feels like family! Loved having Nutella for breakfast & walking across the street to the beach and City Park. It was the best possible way to spend 24 hours in Kelowna. Oooh, and there's a hot tub!

The place is more like a chalet. Six bed rooms, private bathroom with shower and spa bath, comfortable beds, big lockers, big TV room with loads of comfy armchairs and sofas, and a fully stocked kitchen. Loved it.

Love the atmosphere and how welcoming the staff and guests are! I stayed 8 months ago and it felt like home staying again. It's common to book for 2 days and stay for 2 weeks. Met do many people who don't want to leave! Thank you

The location was amazing, a little hard to find in the beginning as you can only pull in from one direction, but a close walk to downtown Kelowna and the local beach. As a couple we booked a private room with a private washroom. The staff was very friendly, and very helpful to book activities/tours for us each day. But... More

Samesun was great! Mark (the GM) was very helpful and accommodating. We had a private 6 person dorm which was clean and comfortable. Awesome patio as well. Located right in downtown Kelowna, across from the beach and nightlife. All in all, great experience and would recommend to any fun loving individuals looking for an affordable stay in Kelowna!

Compared to the other two hostels in Kelowna (which I rated as "terrible" elsewhere on Tripadvisor), SameSun Backpacker Lodge was great! There are many, many reasons to stay here: 1. Useful web site. 2. Fast online-reservations. 3. Friendly, welcoming front desk staff. 4. Easy payment and check-in. 5. Clean and comfortable rooms and beds. 6. Various amenities (I didn't stay...

Had a really great 24 hours at this hostel. It was clean, the English guy working at the desk was really friendly and there was a really cool atmosphere! The proximity to the busy main road is the only issue but not really a problem if you are looking for a cheap place to stay! Would advise hiring a boat... More

I stayed one night at SameSun Kelowna and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Friendly Staff, Clean, adequate shower facilities. Great location just minutes walk from the main beach and down town. I would recommend to anyone who is travelling solo and wanting to meet new people to share travel experiences with.

Myself and five others traveled to Kelowna for a roller derby game. We all were pleased with the service, rooms and everything that was available for us. I would definitely stay there again and I'm sure the rest of the team would agree with me.

This review is coming after my second time staying at this hostel. The staff are very friendly and great to hang out with, facilities are plentiful and clean and location is perfect! There is a hot tub at the hostel which is very nice to go for a dip in, gazebos out back, plenty of tables to play cards, eat... More
