Thanks heaps for all your help Dan you made our stay one for the books. I've stayed at a few hostels before but no one was as helpful as Dan. He booked bus tickets for us, gave us ideas on what to do for the day and how to get there. Smashed it bro!

Centrally located the SameSun location is great if you are visiting Vancouver for the first time. I stayed in a 6 person orm style room. Clean and friendly staff. Fun area with a pool table. Bar downstairs is cool, try the shot wheel! Would recommend if you like hostels.
