Samesun was probably the most expensive hostel I’ve stayed in but nowhere near the nicest. It had a good size kitchen and a nice area to eat outside but the washrooms and rooms were very dated. The car park was small so we had to park next door which was fortunately free on weekends.

We are an older couple and didn’t do enough research on the property. So it was a different experience for us. All in all it wasn’t bad the double bed a bit small.

Overall a good hostel. I did find a couple hairs in my bed which made me question the cleanliness but it did overall seem to be clean. The staff were very friendly. The bagged breakfast was nice as well. I would stay again. It's a great value!
