Great location and friendly staff and fast wifi. Our only issue was the smell in our dorm room, which was due to the stinky unwashed heaps of laundry of a guy in one of the dorm beds, but it's not the hostel's fault that some of its guests are slobs. We'd stay there again the next time we're in Banff.


Good atmosphere but the dorm rooms did not appear to be cleaned very regularly or well but it could also have been because of the people who were staying in the room. In the dorm, there was trash everywhere and there wasn't a ton of space to store your luggage so people were leaving their belongings everywhere. There was a decent sized common area and kitchen plus a huge fridge which was nice. The staff also led a pub crawl which was a great way to experience the town.


Not enough bowl They said hosrelworld took the deposit, not hostel. Contacted hostelworld, no refund. I will tell my friend not to book hostel via hostelworld.com. I will recommend them to book directly or via other agent which does not charge any handling fee or deposit when cancellation
