I stayed here for 3 nights and the hostel is good. The location is perfect, less than a 5 minute walk to the town. Rooms are very clean and there is even air conditioning which I have not found in some other samesun hostels. Overall good value for money.

University of Alberta FOCUS Club, low budget tours for International students visiting our country, enjoy seeing Western Canada, an accent to spending time in the lab or observing medical procedures. Often this tour is a high light to their Canadian experience. The ten day trip includes the beautiful Canadian Rockies, with stops in Jasper, Lake Louise, Yoho Park and Banff.... More

Great place to stay in kelowna, so good we stayed twice! Value for money for a couple not wanting to dorm. Great en suite, cannot knock it at all as its adjacent to beach in kelowna. Making fresh pancakes in the morning with fresh friut the best. Fantastic place for lone travellers as its warm and welcoming to all

Let's start with the positive - the hostel is really well located, minutes walk to the beaches, lake, and downtown. Large kitchen and eating area, free coffee, breakfast included in the price. Beds are comfortable, large lockers. Large bathrooms (never had to queue) that seem to be kept clean. However. It's basically like staying in a frat house. Which you... More

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
