    I was very pleased with my stay. The room was clean and didn’t feel cramped but we didn’t spend much time there anyway. Very convenient location.

    Great location! Easy walking distance to everything. Most people kept to themselves. I was in a female room en-suite and it was nice.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Banff international Hostel. The location is great, a two minute walk from downtown where you'll find plentiful amounts of restaurants and shops. The staff were also very helpful about nearby hikes and how to get to popular areas such as Lake Louise. My room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I also liked how there was a curtain on the bed for privacy and that my room had an En-suite. I would stay here again.

    Great location, would stay again for that reason. The rest of it was adequately comfortable. Free breakfast was just toast or cereal, and nobody could understand the coffee machine, but it was better than nothing

    I canceled my reservation 72 hours prior but never heard back from you. The block to click for cancel did not work. I'm expecting my refund of deposit.

    The queen size bed in private room no. 321 was horrible! The bed was sagging, the mattress was unacceptable. I don't know how anybody could sleep on that bed. I had to sleep on the floor. Then I found something crawling on the floor, it was a roach! I would never stay there again! In addition, when I booked the reservation, Hostel World website indicated I paid a down payment 29 Euros. When I got there the receptionist said that was for booking fee. It was a mess!
