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

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 :)

Stayed here for 5 nights in July 2014. Great location, great atmosphere, and great staff. Met a lot of interesting people at the bar every evening. Would stay here again.

Hostel is in a good location close to town. If you are driving, parking can be a bit tough depending on the weekend. Karaoke at the bar.. Hilariously terrible!! Good times all around.
