Too many long terms making the room over messy. If you're a party person, this is definitely a place. Since the room's door is not auto-locked, no one locks it manually, so there just can be anyone bumping into your room. Pancake for breakfast is very nice.

Only stayed the one night and did not spend much time there but seamed as though there where a few things set up by the staff each day and bar all though very small looked ok. A little walk from all the shops, bars and restaurants and tours companies..

People were great, stuff was ways helpful! It's awesome that every room has its own bathroom (I guess so) though they need more chlorine.. All in all its a great ace to stay!! I highly recommend it

The hostel is in a great location, very close to Banff town centre, with bus stops within site of the hostel. I stayed in an 8 bed female room which was clean and with a good number of power sockets, but as there was only one bathroom (shower and toilet together) it was crowded in the morning. The breakfast was good, what you'd expect from a hostel. Staff were generally helpful, not the friendliest staff I've come across. For travelers looking for a party atmosphere.

10/10 place, the staff is all time, such a good atmosphere with the friendliest people, always down for a chat. The bar especially kicks off, if you need a bed in banff get amongst the samesun.
