DO NOT BOOK A ROOM HERE! It’s unorganized and dirty. Stay at Hi hostel instead. I showed up to Venice samesun and it was a terrible experience. They don’t number the beds and it’s a free for all for anyone who comes in. I showed up and someone stuff was on my bed. Went down stairs and was giving a different room for the night but was told I would be moving back to my original room in the morning. Moved back and the bed WAS STILL occupied by someone else. They said I would have to wait to 3 pm. I slept in my car and just went to work because I work nights. Got off room was finally available but one day when I got off someone occupied my bed and I was so mad. I ended up canceling the rest of my days and went to Hi Hostel. Samesun said they would reimburse me back for those two nights of inconvenience but I never got that money back. Don’t waste your money here. There are better hostel that are overall better ran/organized.

We booked a private room with a double bed and a bathroom in the room. The bed was comfortable, and the room was spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would I recommend it? No, because you could hear everything -- there was a concert outside, so there was bass and music that was very loud till midnight on a Sunday. Every time our neighbor opened their door, it sounded like it was happening in our room. The shower had terrible water pressure. Our white towels had yellow stains. The carpet was very gross. It was sticky like the entire carpet was soaked in soda and never cleaned. I felt very uncomfortable walking barefoot on it. Parking wasn't very easy if you want it to be free -- otherwise it was very expensive. Maybe the dorms are better. It wasn't terrible, but I wish i would've booked somewhere else because it wasn't a very comfortable stay overall.

Not much to the place but it was clean and located close to the beach. There was construction going on in front of the hotel so it was noisy but we weren't in the room very much anyway.
