This was a decent hostel, nothing special though the big kitchen was pretty nice. Good location basically across the street from the town centre. They had free parking. Room was slightly small, though with only 3 people, none with big backpacks or suitcases, in a 6-bed room it was perfectly manageable. The girls' showers/toilets were out of order when we visited which was too bad when you have to get up in the middle of the night to go for a wee, but otherwise everything was fine.

Spent a week here and loved it, the place has a great vibe for people travelling alone or with company. Staff especially James, and Max were awesome. Very helpful front desk and plans each night for activists. The facilities are great with a spa, alfresco area and comfy couches in the theatre room.(which also has Netflix) Wifi was terrible, however the kitchen has everything you need. There's a car park handy for people with a vehicle, and close enough to all the action of Kelowna with Bars, beaches and shops all a 5 minute walk away! Recommend staying here!

Lovely tidy rooms but a little bit cramped especially with each guest having either a large pack or suitcase and not many places to put them. Friendly and organised staff and the guests that were already there made us feel welcome. Walking distance to shops and bars.

Overall, I found very good value in service, cleanliness, and price. The personnel was fairly quick to respond. I would rate the Same Sun youth hostel a ****. I also liked the special lunch/dinner events offered there or around town.

Room Tip: Preferably, book a dorm bed during the low-travelling season (September 4th.-April 1st.). The prices...

Positive: Staff were friendly. They helped us with what we needed. The hostel is in a good location. Most important places in the city are within a few minutes from the hotel.

Negative: Not very clean, rooms are dingy.

The best thing about this hostel is the location, RIGHT downtown. Large and needing renos, it seems like they are beginning to work on it-- starting with the bathrooms on the one floor ( so you need to go to another floor to use the bathroom ) There is a funny smell in the stairways, I had mixed feelings. When I arrived back at night after door closure, a crowd of people was gathered outside the main door. Not cool a cool place to gather in my opinion. Should be on hostel property. The Reggae music from the patio came in our window well past midnight ( quiet hour is 11:00 ) Front desk people were very friendly and helpful. Kitchen- large and bright. Basic breakfast included. I do stay there because of the convenience when in town.

Room Tip: If this is possible, ask for a dorm room that is not already nearly full of people. There are LOTS...
