The best place I found so far, while travelling through BC. The Samesun Kelowna is not too big yet not to small, not too loud yet not too relaxed, simply it's perfect. The Staff is always helpful and organized, the kitchen is clean and has everything you need for cooking, the dorms and bathrooms are clean. 10/10 would stay again.

Everything you need in a backpackers! Clean, quiet, with a decent sized common area to meet new people and daily activities! The free breakfast was a bonus too. Only thing I can suggest is that a mirror is put in the rooms.

Came to Kelowna looking to do some snowboarding in Big White and after having a great stay at the Samesun in Vancouver thought I'd try this one too. It is right in the city center near to the main street, liquor store and night clubs which was great for my needs! There is a shuttle bus on the weekends and... More

Hi Dylen! It's truly unfortunate and offensive that you feel the need to leave us such a ridiculously false review! We have looked back into our system to find your time with us and address the situation, but it seems you never even stayed with us Dylen? As for the complaint about our home being 'diacusting', full of junkies and... More

This hostel was very clean and comfortable, and was in a pretty good location. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a good internet connection. However breakfast was a bit disorganised and pretty average. I would however still recommendt he Samesun to anyone looking to stay in Kelowna.

Stayed here on one of the long weekends in the summer and it was a blast. The rooms are nice, the atmosphere is pretty welcoming, and the staff were very accommodating. Fun place to crash if you're young and down to meet people. Also it's within walking distance to the bars and DT kelowna, which is a plus.
