Huge hostel with a young vibe

Central location, friendly front desk staff, free breakfast
The setup of the hostel with the long corridors down each floor reminded me of dormitory living during my college days. But it was nice to read all the recommendations of the must-dos, must-sees and must-eats of Vancouver around the walls on each floor. Free breakfast was great especially bagels and muffins which came out warm if you got there early. The front desk staff were helpful and recommended me a place for bike rental and where to exchange money. Vancouver is a great city to to explore by bike. It has the widest bike lanes I have ever seen in a downtown area! And you can store your bike in the hostel, although you have to carry it down/up the stairs to/from the basement. A big kitchen is provided for guests to cook in however it is closed for cleaning a few hours in the afternoon each day so may be inconvenient if you want to use it that time. The showers could be a lot cleaner. The shower curtains need to be changed as they smelt badly of sweat and the shower heads were at an awkward angle that were not adjustable. However if these don't bother you than this is a good enough hostel thanks to its great location and friendly staff.

Okay Budget accomodation

Convenient, Close to Public transit, close to shops/sites
This is a backpacker hostel, okay - building really needs an upgrade; location is great on the weekend if you like to party; lots of bars and partying all around the hostel. I stayed here because there were no other options in the downtown.

Great location

Location, Price, Staff
Excellent. Great staff who were always friendly and nothing was too much trouble. A great and convenient area of Vancouver to stay. Some homeless around but that's expected in the center of a city. Thanks!!!

At the center of downtown

Well organized, kind of clean, and good location
I'd just stayed one night for transit, Samesun Backpackers is quite a big hostel, all things was well organized. IF I say one thing, there was no elevator, so it was tough to carry on my heavy luggage to 4th floor..

立地 朝食 キッチン、リビングの設備
駅からは5分 また便利な立地で日本で言うと六本木の夜の街に位置する感じで飲み歩きやショッピングにも便利だ。 セキュリティもしっかりしている。朝食の豪華さは今までで一番、スタッフが良く働いている。リビングもキッチンも設備が良く、 喫煙可能なベランダも広い。他の旅行者と自然に会話の生まれる十分な広さのリビングが良い。
