23 September 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very clean and friendly staff

Disliked: The people inside the building followed the 11:00 rule and it was very quiet. It was the nose outside the building, very loud drunk people kept me awake until 2:00 am, which made me tried for the rest of the day. I would not recommend this property to anyone staying in the summer time, winter may be not quite so loud outside.

Liked: It is right in the heart of Revelstoke, (The greyhound stupidly stops on the outskirts of revvy so its a long walk especially with a ski bag). The rooms are decently sized with numerous kitchens and bathrooms available. There is a comfortable tv room to relax in. The bus to the ski hill is free for samesun residents. The wifi was quite adequate after a few issues on the first night of my stay.

Disliked: The fridges are quite small and stuff continually falls out. The office is shut from 11-3 which is annoying if you are arriving during those times or need something. The sheets and pillows are quite old and worn.

Liked: The hostel is really clean and has spacious bathrooms. Staff is very friendly.

Disliked: Kind of a walk from the Greyhound bus station. A shuttle might be handy. Rooms are co-ed! The lockers are too small to fit a backpack or suitcase.

Liked: The staff on the hostel are really great, they help you with everything, you can go riding with them and there is always something to do if you are open to meet new people.

Disliked: They say on the website that they have a hot tub, they don´t! And some of the room misses some pieces of floor and that resolves in a bad impression.

Liked: Good Atmosphere and some very helpful staff. The hostel is a bit of a trek from the greyhound station once there they have everything that you need. I was there during a quiet period so not sure what this place would be like when it is busy. I found the kitchens were well stocked and plenty of room for everyone. Also the hostel has a very good TV room and game room with a pool table. Good places to meet people and everyone was very friendly especially the staff (even when I set off the fire alarm with my bad cooking). Revelstoke is pretty small so once you have dropped off your big bags then it is pretty easy to get around town

Disliked: Nothing major

Liked: good location, great common areas, helpful staff.

Disliked: Many kitchens though a little understocked with cooking utensils ( pots pans etc) Dorm rooms cramped with limited storage. Bathrooms have no hooks, or anywhere to hang clothes: such a simple thing to make it more comfortable!

Liked: The playroom (inc pooltable) and the beds.

Disliked: The equipment of the kitchen is very poor. The 'average' score on safe and secure is because some food of mine is stolen out of the fridge, TWICE!

Liked: Hi,besides the Backpackers Inn in Ottawa the SameSun Hostel in Revelstoke is the best Hostel I´ve been to so far.Everything is very relaxed, the location is pretty good with a Bar and some kind of a "Night club" (the village has only a population of 9000) around the corner also as a cheap store to buy food.Especially the free pool-/air hockey and foosball table is amazing!Cheers and take it easyMarkus
