          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.

          Yes! There is a parking lot right behind the hostel. I didn't use it, but I heard it was free overnight, and then, you have to pay something around 25 dollars for the whole day.
