Kelowna’s SameSun Lodge is the clued-up backpacker’s choice to enjoy
Canadian valley life K-town style! What’s the lodge like? Well it’s kinda like
the city that it’s right at the heart of ? beautiful, clean…but with a fast
undercurrent of partying and activity that you won’t be able to miss.
We built the hostel right downtown, a minute from City Park, the lake and
the beach, a minute from the clubs, pubs and restaurants and then made it
funky and backpacker friendly. The kitchen is huge, the washrooms are
worthy of a hotel, all rooms are air- conditioned and there’s a big BBQ patio
out back. Got a favorite CD? We’ll play it for ya! We’ve got internet kiosks,
free games, TV room, bike hire, fun hostel activities…every backpacker
amenity you could think of.
But you know us. We wanted more. So we’re extending the already large
common areas and put in even more comfy sofas, video games, and
snowboard and wakeboard movies. All for you guys!
Our staff will help you book your next SameSun hostel, your wine-tasting
trip, or tell you the best mountain to stroll up for views of the valley’s
vineyards. During winter we run a shuttle from Kelowna to Big White and
Silver Star ski resorts (both under an hour’s drive away), the cheapest,
easiest way to start your snow trip and get you and your board up and
down the hill. For the summer we run daily houseboat trips on Lake
Okanagan from SameSun Kelowna ? how often do you do that at home?!
This lodge really is gorgeous. The staff really are gorgeous. The city really is
gorgeous. Summer or winter, this is the infamous, the one, the only,
Kelowna SameSun Lodge!
