My stay in Samesun was triggered by the free breakfast offered and the "backpacker" in it's name. The latter really comes handy, from close location to Greyhound station to free phone calls and super helpful frontdesk-staff.
The openmic in the integrated bar was very atmospheric and made a difference to other hostels I stayed in so far.
I have only one small request to the Samesun-team: re-do your power plugs, some of them don't hold chargers, it's quite annoying to see your phone wasn't charged at night because it fell off. Also, a second pancake station/pan at breakfast wouldn't hurt to relax peaktime for pancake demand.
See you next time in Banff!
