We rented a private room in the hostel over the holidays. Great location and friendly staff. The room was OK but not worth the price. The door is glass and right next to the front desk so you can basically hear everything going on in the hostel at all times. The kitchen has no door so it smells like food... More

We payed the cheapest in town and tried not to have great expectations. If you don't mind staying in a dirty place then it will be good for you. We think this is always the result when they pay cleaning staff by letting them stay at reduced rate. They don't have any pride in their task. There wasn't garbage littering... More

I like this place! This hostel is special. Since it was a former church it's a very old building with it's own atmosphere... They have just a little parking lot behind the house. Drying your clothes in your own room can be annoying during a longer stay with lots of powder. Even though there is a warmed ski locker. You... More

Ive been to many hostel around the world and this one was the worst. We stayed in the basement and it was cold, humid and not clean. Watch photo of under the bed, fungi! I'm sure you can find better place in town

I am usually very happy with the hostels that I visit but this one was terrible! Water leaking from the walls of the room, really cold during the night (10 degrees or less), some of the staff are arrogant and not pleased to have guests. If you make noise after 11 pm they charge you 250$ watch out! Just try... More

This little hostel is nice and close to everything in downtown and is very well priced. The staff are friendly and helpful and went out of their way to help i.e. we needed to borrow a hairdryer and one of the staff lent us hers. The building is split into two levels, each with a kitchen and common area which... More

I stayed at the samesun Revelstoke for 7 nights while on a ski trip, first impressions of the place were good, the staff were friendly and helpful, they offered free shuttle passes for going to and from the ski resort and aquatic centre passes. The overall place seemed clean and tidy, there was a decent TV room and common room... More

the facilities were clean, the fellow guests were respectful and pleasant. The bathrooms and facilities were cleaned each days very thoroughly. The staff were outgoing and helpful, particularly Simon the manager. I called him the chameleon because he blends into the Canadian culture so well. He is German but you would swear he is the most Canadian guy of all... More

We stayed there in a private room. Nice atmosphere, nice staff but that's about it. Building is loud and probably not designed for a hostel. Kitchen is okay for throwing a pizza in a microwave, not for cooking. Shrunk linen didn't fit the bed. One of the shared bathroom didn't lock.....

This hostel has typical amenities, including shared kitchen, bathroom and common area. It's not the cleanest but the price matches the expectation. Stayed one night, no complaints and this is the cheapest place you will find to sleep in Revelstoke.
