    Really liked the location - anything I needed was within walking distance as this is downtown Vancouver. The included breakfast was buffet style including fresh fruit salad, muffins, coffee tea juice & more. Would stay again for sure.

    I always go to Samesun whenever I have to go to Vancouver for a night or two. Beds might be new I think? Very comfortable.. sometimes there is hallway noise, but usually it's good. Breakfast is decent.

    Property is a bit decrepit and currently being renovated. Bathrooms very cold on first floor because the windows are all left open. Beds comfortable. Free breakfast. Wifi is good. Good security. Noisy as quiet time not enforced.

    Old, shabby, overheated & smelly! Probably only a pleasant place if you come there to make party + meet other travellers in their early 20ies and do not care about where you actually stay and how (clean) the place looks like. Strongly recommend another hostel...More

    Granville Street
    Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
    has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs
    and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the

    nights are the most popular and lively, with young
    revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping
    the party going until late. Granville Street, being
