Very good location. A lot of restaurant, pubs around. Walking distance for all main attractions. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is amazing, the best I had ever in any hostels in the world.

Good place to base yourself in VC. This hostel is massive, soo many ppl which makes it easy to make friends. There are lots of good places to eat close by and they always have activities arranged throughout the week.

This hostel was very clean, was right downtown and had a great/cheap bar attached! Didn't find the staff as helpful or friendly as most hostels, but they are a busy hostel so they may just not have as much time to talk. Great place to meet other travelers and socialize!

Noisy through the night from street noise so difficult to sleep. Bed was a little unstable and bathrooms on the small side with not enough basins. Kitchen was also on the small side with not enough seating to eat. Otherwise very friendly, lots of activities available, very central to everything and great breakfast so very good value overall. Dinners there... More

We were really happy with our double room with ensuite bathroom. It was just a bit difficult in the morning to get some breakfast, as the kitchen is quite small, and there are not enough seats. But overall, really good hostel.

SameSun is a friendly, cool hostel that has the perfect vibe for whatever kind of travel you are doing. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about everything in town. The bar takes on many different roles during breakfast, dinner, and bar/club nights. The rooms are always clean and the common area is a great place to chill and... More

Spent a great weekend (Friday and Saturday) at the hostel. Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, it's the perfect location to easily access popular attractions, such as Granville Island or Stanley Park. It is also really close to Davie Street and its LGBT bars/clubs, which was also fun! Lots of restaurants and various attractions nearby. Great pub, The Beaver,... More

This hostel is honestly one of the best I've ever stayed in!! Extremely social for a solo traveler like myself and plenty to keep you entertained, with great day trips organised by the hostel and the guide is top notch!! $43 was a little higher than I wanted to pay per night but with breakfast included and the vibe around...

This hostel has pretty much everything a traveller making a short stop in the beautiful city of Vancouver needs. The location is great, the atmosphere is electric with its nice bar, although it is fairly easy to find sleep even with the several clubs surrounding the area...with ears-plugs! The breakfast is fine and included, the wi-fi zone is fast, the... More
