Good hostel, 5mins walk from the centre. Good cheap dinner special each day and happy hour drinks - bar is very small but was lively a few nights, music does to on until 2am so can be difficulty if you want to sleep early. Bfast basic but ok, wifi works well in bar and ok in rooms. Nice hot shower and clean bathrooms

Only stayed for one night, but the hostel seemed nice, and a good size. The rooms were comfortable and ensuite. The kitchen was a little small but had sufficient storage space and cooking utensils. There appeared to be lots of social stuff arranged and there was generally a nice atmosphere

Staff were great and were able to give me some great suggestions on what I should do in the only day I had in Banff. The facilities the room were great, a lot of power points, comfortable beds (but I only stayed one night).

The staff was very friendly and helpful . Location great and the hostel was clean . Hallways were a bit too toasty warm from light fixtures which spread to sleeping rooms which were almost hot .

The stay was pleasant and staff very kind and helpful. The only think I did not like was the information about the price of canoexkayak trip. I was told that the price is supposed to be 10-15CAD or if I am single around 20CAD and after an hour of kayaking I was asked to pay 37,50CAD!!! That was really unbeliavable! So please be aware that if you go kayaking and you are single it will cost you a bunch of money! Worth only in a group. Then the price is 10-15CAD.

Great location in the middle of Banff. Staff were friendly. High season Banff prices. Could use a bathroom renovation, but beds were comfy and clean. Bar was affordable and a nice place to socialize with other travellers.

My stay at Samesun was only brief but enjoyable nonetheless. Having an ensuite bathroom was perfect after a long day of hiking. The room was cozy also. I would definitely stay here again.

Samesun Banff is a great place, especially if you're travelling in a group since the dorms are like nice small apartments. The staff is very welcoming and helpful :)
