Kind of bitter-sweet. I came through a while ago before met up with friends to take off to big-white. It is ridiculously close to downtown which was always fun to hit up. The staff were awesome and the hostel had a very friendly vibe for the most part... I don't remember talking much to the housekeepers but think one of...

Hi there, Firstly I would like to apologize for the discomfort that you felt during your time with us. I notice that you stayed nearly a year ago, in December 2015. Since the time of your stay, we now have a completely different staff and management. I hope your past experience will not deter you from staying at Samesun hostels...

Awesome place to stay, like one big family. Made friends, went climbing, hiking, relaxed in the hottub. It's really close to town and there's tons going on around the hostel and in town. I'd definitely go back and stay there and probably live there if I didn't have another job! Kitchen was great for cooking, there's a TV room if...

Such a good hostel! Was immediately impressed with how clean the hostel was (dorms and bathrooms) and how comfortable the beds were. Spacious too, not like other smaller 4 bed dorms i've been in, with big lockers as well.

This place has everything you need. Space in the room (stayed in a 4bed) and locker space as well for that extra security comfort. Kitchen is cleaned thoroughly daily and there is plenty of space for food and drink. Free breakfast in the morning offers a variety of things to choose and had good tea! Facilities are a 10/10.

I was over all satisfied with my stay and would recommend the hostel to everyone. I loved the location near by the lake and the city centre. It was clean as well and the beds are very comfy. I would stay there again!

Hello and thanks for the feedback. Firstly, I would like to apologize for any disturbance during your stay with us. Samesun has quiet time from 11pm to 7am and you certainly shouldn’t have been able to hear any music after then. I have spoken with the staff on duty that evening and they will ensure that quiet time is firmly...

I stayed there altogether for 4 nights. Hostel is just next to the highway and really close to the downtown. Stuff is nice and helpful. Free breakfast for all the food lovers, you can make your own pancakes or have a toast with spread 😊 Hostel is clean which I like the most. 😉

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Large 3 floor hostel situated right downtown minutes from the beach. Freshly renovated with all the amenities you expect in a hostel - bunk beds, lockers in every room, AC in every room, personal reading lamp and power outlets by each bed to charge your devices. Upgraded WiFi to let you upload your photos and keep in touch with your family. Popular among international travelers looking for budget accommodation and looking to meet new friends - we're a very social establishment. Most rooms are mixed gender, with a small number of female-only rooms. Private rooms with/without washrooms are also available - but quickly sell out. All guests must be over 19 and have their own credit card. We cannot accommodate any children or pets. ... more   less
