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.

I liked the free breakfast each morning. It was a good variety. The people and staff are very friendly. Lots of things to do during the day. The bathrooms are well equipped. There is a great choice of rooms and different prices. I enjoyed my time there.

Everything you need for a budget stay in Kelowna. Breakfast was included (cereals, toast, pancakes, fruit, coffee) and the kitchen was well equipped if you wanted to cook your own food too. WiFi was good and the shared spaces in general were clean and pleasant. I shared a 4-bunk

Thank you for your recent comments. We’re happy to hear that our facilities and atmosphere were over your expectations. Summertime would be considered peak season in Kelowna, although we are open year round offering a safe and enjoyable place to stay for travellers. Cheers Samesun Management.

Hi Claude, Our 8 share dorms will be $32.50 per night, plus tax, and our 4 share dorms will be $34.50 per night, plus tax. We will also have a weekly rate available, and although the price hasn't been set yet, I would expect it will cost around $175 per week. We look forward to having you as a guest again! :) Cheers, Mark
