Definitely a euro style party hostel atmosphere and much younger crowd, not quite what I personally was hoping for, but hey it's cheap for banff and convenient, there's a bar downstairs with decent food specials. Free earplugs at the front desk if you actually want to get some sleep. Walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. Also free continental breakfast in the morning.

Stayed here plenty of times when visiting Banff, well located, clean beds and washrooms/common areas and The Beaver is a great place to grab some pints and some food. Highly recommend it if you're staying in Banff

A few long-stay people who had their own clique, but otherwise this was a good hostel. The 14-bed dorm is actually split into a couple of smaller rooms, so not that bad. Kitchen was small but clean & there are plenty of pots, pans & cutlery. Busy bar downstairs & good common room. Would stay again.

Staff are very friendly and helpful, the Bar downstairs can get quite lively - which is a great way to meet people. Variety of activities to do which was really good.

Everything was cleaned daily. Fairly close to the main strip of the street. Amazing price. Full kitchen for long term stays. A bar attached with a full menu. Would stay there again for sure.

Overall decent place to stay. They CRANKed up the heat though my first night and it was impossible to sleep because it was so hot. Second night the most obnoxious men were in my room so again no sleep (no fault to the hostel though). Obviously a party hostel but you can hear the bar downstairs, upstairs in your room all night. Decent if you're travelling solo but if you have two or more people I would recommend sharing the cost of a hotel.

Clean and good atmosphere. A fun place to party but does have quieter common area if you want to just chill. Great staff and included breakfast was good. Had good roommates so felt safe, and staff around 24/7 which is nice as a single female traveller. Will stay here again if I'm in town.
