Pros Great location, very walkable Not bad value Good sound proofing Very clean Con's The beds need to replaced. Mine was not very comfortable. My body ached on the third morning. My knees hurt. I never woke up like that before. The bar is nice and all. I just did not like 20% mandatory service charge because I joined a... More

My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights at Samesun and loved it. We had a private room both nights. The hostel is located on Granville street, which is right In the city centre and close to great restaurants and shopping. We arrived late for our room and they were more than accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and the... More

The breakfast was great, the bar downstairs is super and the staff is very nice. Food prices are hard to beat! I would definitely stay here again! Price was pretty high, but the same counts for everything else in Vancouver.

Room was clean and comfortable, bar served good food at good prices. Only one drawback. Staff check the toilets almost every hour. Our room was across from the women's toilets and 90% of the time, we were awoken hourly by staff announcing their presence outside the toilets.

We have stayed at this Hostel before and after we had our camper. It is located really good, the staff is friendly and the breakfast is good. But the rooms are really hot duing the summer. We would stay there again!

I stayed at the hostel for 2 nights at the end of August and was very happy with the hostel! The staff was friendly/helpful, the facilities were clean, had delicious fresh bagels, and the overall atmosphere was great. The common rooms and bar made it easy for a solo traveler, like myself, to meet new people. The location was also... More

This backpackers is great. Central to the club strip of Grenville street which you might think means loud and rowdy. This place is not that at all. The bedrooms were quiet. Even the one I stayed in which faced the street. I also stayed in a room off the street. That was really quiet and relaxing. The beaver bar is... More

It's in a great location on Granville Street. 10 mins to the sea front, bus stops outside. 5 mins to the train. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and the staff are great guides of what is going on and what to try. We stayed for two weeks and if you aren't a party person, it's not great.... More

Great location on Granville St if you want to be in the centre of it all - close to bars, restaurants, shops etc.! Kitchen was clean and good storage space. Didn't use the common area but looked ok. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm - good space and large lockers. Did get quite hot though. Only small fans by the... More

Backpackers from across the globe; this is the place for you. Great vibe here. Great common area and kitchen with a balcony for smoking. Very safe and secure, good lockers in the rooms. Beds are a little squeaky but that's ok. Very central on Granville St, many homeless, but they only ask once, and leave you alone once you say... More
