    Good option for staying in Banff on a budget. Very well located, on the main street just a short walk from the main drag of shops, restaurants etc. The dorm was clean and warm with privacy curtains, individual power points and a decent shower. It was a bit noisy on Friday and Saturday night with a few drunk people walking around talking loudly at 2-3am but it's not what you'd call a party hostel. Staff were ok - not the friendliest but not rude. I would stay there again.

    Beautiful location, close to downtown shops and the grocery store. Hair dryers are in the rooms so don’t bring one, as well as really nice universal adaptors/usb plug ins mounted on the walls. The room was a bit old but I’m guessing that’s how things go in a remote mountain town. The breakfast wasn’t great. Overall, a really nice place, I would recommend and return.
