SameSun Backpacker Lodges - Vancouver, British Columbia

If you wanna explore Vancouver, British Columbia - a beautiful city, with a cultural edge second to none - SameSun’s Vancouver Lodge is the place to stay. Once a legendary Global Village Hostel, it's now an even better SameSun backpacker’s lodge! We’ve pulled out all the stops by building a massive brand new kitchen upstairs, a huge funky common area and featuring, the one and only, Beaver Restaurant and Pub...the best backpacker hang out in North America. The Beaver was designed by backpackers for the backpacking masses. Cheap food, drinks and live Dj's spinning amazing tunes...Pretty cool eh?

Still the largest hostel in downtown Vancouver with a central location in the heart of Vancouver's Backpacker district - great atmosphere, friendly staff, and shiny happy backpackers. Facilities include private rooms, quad rooms, laundry, internet access, games area, lockers and patio. We’ll hook you up with cheap Vancouver Canucks tickets for the NHL fans amongst you. We’ll also help you sort out your Canadian adventures from the hostel’s activity/travel info desk. Plus our social director will wow you with our daily activities like hockey, comedy nights, bowling, movie nights, skating, pool competitions..... and the list goes on.

Clean, comfortable, safe and fun. We reckon this isn’t just the best hostel in Vancouver but probably the best hostel in the world. Don't just take our word for it, come check us out!
