Liked: Awesome place, everyone was very friendly and helpful. They have many organized activities to help get you out and about and meeting new people.

Disliked: Was a bit loud at night. They have signs for quiet hours after 11pm, which mostly held true. but my room was near the staircase so i got a lot of people running up and down the stairs at late hours.

Liked: The daily Hostelactivities are awesome. For about $ 5 (€ 3.80, just the bus tickets) a great guide like Steph will show you some beautiful places in and around Vancouver :) Cypress Mountain snowboarding (learning for me ;D) ~30 mins, the Ocean, Parks, Islands, Citylife, etc. I really recommend everyone to have look at the blackboard. If dav, steph or other friendly staff ask you, look foward to enjoy a marvellous day :)

Disliked: The nearest Liquid Store needs a larger assortment ;), but no worries, *a bar is directly below your bedrooms* :) ** thats not negativ, its still quiet at night

Liked: Awesome place to stay in downtown Vancouver. Perfect place to meet other travellers, either on the organised daily activities with Stephanie or at the Beaver Bar. Free breakfast was decent if you could get up early enough. Would have loved to have stayed longer if I could. If you're travellinf alone, definitely stay here!

Disliked: My bed was a bit noisy everytime I moved in the 8 bed dorm, but I returned & stayed in a 4 bed dorm & had no complaints.

Liked: Excellent breakfast and staff were really friendly and helpful. Would be a great place to stay if you're looking to party.

Disliked: We stayed in a private room in the hope that it would be quiet, but we were woken up by people coming home from nights out all through the night. If you want some quiet, I'd recommend getting a room away from the bathrooms/common room.

Liked: The friendliness of the staff is not a legend, you can find it in Samesun Backpakers ! I liked the location, close to many things to do, the breakfast was perfect with a lot of choice ! Cheap drinks also in the bar, the kitchen has everything you need. High security with a door code changed everyday.

Disliked: The lockers in each room might be bigger, shared bathroom might need a better ventilation but there're cleaned many times each day !
