    The buildings are nice and facilities are clean and well maintained. In the summer the rooms can be very very hot with limited ventilation making sleeping difficult. Fans are available but not too effective.

    Great authentic hostel in Banff! Stayed in some really fancy new hostels lately for a similar price but they never have the same character. Felt super welcome here, staff were amazing, breakfast was a good surprise and the other backpackers seemed on the same wave length. (No partying or hanky panky in the night) bathroom wasnt great but I'll still come back and stay on my way through Banff next time!

    Cute setup, kinda motel-like but the rooms have lofts and there is a nice courtyard as well. Great location and helpful staff!

    Nice little hostel with great atmosphere. They offer group activities, recommend to do some to get to know new people (as there is no bar at the hostel -- one is just a few meters away, though). Staff was always great. I actually extended my stay for a few times because I liked it so much. :)

    Nice stay, friendly and helpful staff. Bathroom in the room is convenient but we were lucky that we never had to line up to get in as we were in a 7 bed dorm. No bathroom outside the dorm.

    Very Good

    Relocated here last minute due to location. The hostel serves its purpose and is clean but I felt like the security of the rooms could’ve been improved. The rooms open straight on to car park and street on lower level and when the door doesn’t close properly easily it just means you cannot be forgetful or lazy. The breakfast is your usual cereals, bread, coffee and some very sad looking cut fruit and dry bagels. Cannot expect much from here and does the job nicely but lacks social atmosphere

    Very Good

    The location is excellent, with a friendly, mountain-wood atmosphere. The staff are eager to help and welcoming. The 4-bed dorm is spacious and I loved the in-suite bathroom. unfortunately the lockers are very narrow and my bag wouldn’t fit in, nor would it fit into the drawer under the bed. The bunk beds are quite old, wobbly and free standing so any movement of your bunk mate effects your sleep. The price is much too high, the breakfast mediocre carbs and cramped eating area.

    If you don't need any sleep then this is the place to stay, the sink is in the bedroom so you can hear everyone getting ready in the morning and at night, with a room of 6 females the only quiet time is between 2am - 5am, also with the noise comes the light so either one will keep you awake. Its a shame because the beds are definitely the most comfortable I have lay on since traveling Canada. No atmosphere at all the communal areas are either the tiny basement, reception or outside courtyard.
