Awsome place staff are great and met loads of cool people def recommend


Great hostel, 10min walk right into centre of town, 1 min walk from bus to ski fields. Room was spacious considering it was a 6 person room. Having the bar downstairs is a massive bonus!


Best hostel in Banff, if not all of Canada!! Awesome bar and great staff. Definately stay here


Nice place to stay with big rooms and a bar that serves food, only downfall was at check out they wouldn't refund my deposit as they said I paid by credit card and they just held the money as pending even though I paid by direct debit and money has still been taken out .not good way to end,

Hi thanks for the feedback. As I discussed in the email I sent you the deposit you did not get refunded is the booking deposit that Hostelworld takes. This is separate from your key deposit which you did not get charged. Apologies for the confusion. Cheers, Gareth


rooms are very spacious. Wicked crew

Good atmosphere. Easy to meet new people thanks to the events at The Beaver (Bingo, Games, etc.)


Absolutely loved this hostel! This was my first hostel, I am a Canadian and I figured I would try out a hostel during my vacation in Banff. You cannot beat the value you get at Samesun! The rooms were comfy, ensuite was clean and convenient, fireplace was an added bonus. Also, being a solo traveller, I felt it was an awesome place to meet people to ski and party with! The Beaver was an awesome place to start the night and the dinner specials were delicious! Kitchen was also great! Loved it


Could not fault Banff Samesun what so ever! I've had the best 10 days ever! So friendly and welcoming! Will definitely will be returning, sooner rather than later! So much love!
