We were greeted by a friendly staff member and things continued in this same vain for our stay ... nothing seemed too much trouble. The kitchen was great ... very clean & well-appointed. Thanks. Glenda Hills

Really friendly staff, great activities offered during the day and also night! rooms were very clean and comfortable beds, although luggage storage was somewhat limited. Short bus trip into the town or a nice 15 minute walk. Would definitely stay here again.

I really appreciate your review and it's great to hear that you would stay with us again. We provide a bus pass to our guests for a deposit, which gives free travel on the local bus system. Each dorm bed has a locker throughout our hostel and we also have two locker storage rooms, one for skis/snowboards. Hope to host you again soon! - Kirsten Miffling, AGM

Only smal issue was the food took forever at the little restaurant in the main building but there was only one person working for breakfast so cant really blame her. Rest of the weekend was great. Nice place, very nice.

HI BANFF Alpine Centre was an excellent place to stay at. The facilities were great, and the atmosphere very welcoming! Not to mention there is a quaint pub in the basement! I met some great people and wish I could have stayed longer!

Good atmosphere with things organised for each night. Lot of people who are there are there for the whole season (working in the area) so it's generally quiet during the week days. Only 3 showers/2 toilets for the floor but there was never a queue, but I did need to ask someone at reception when the toilet paper had run out in 2 of the 3 toilets. The bus pass idea was brilliant, really helped as even though the walk isn't too bad and it gives you access to other parts of the town

Thanks very much for your review, I hope you enjoyed the events organized by our Activities Coordinator Amy. Also good to hear that you took advantage of the bus pass we offer. I'm sorry about the toilet paper situation, will followup with our Housekeeping Manager to ensure more checks are completed. Hope to host you again! - Kirsten Miffling, AGM

Good hostel with excellent kitchen facilities, staff were nice, noise restrictions after 11 not really enforced. Few random people who weren't staying at the hostel coming into rooms after nights out, maybe staff could do a check to make sure that people aren't picking up randoms and bringing them back to the rooms, can make for an uncomfortable nights sleep.

Thanks for the review, it's great to hear your positive feedback about our facilities and staff. I would like to apologize for your stay being affected by noise during our quiet hours, I will definitely be following up with our night staff regarding this issue. Please note that we have a 24 hour Front Desk and I'm sure the staff would have done a room check immediately or offered to move your room. - Kirsten Miffling, AGM

Nice, large-sized lockers with space to hang stuff up. Seemed very clean, and the breakfast options were great and decently priced.
