    Had a great time in Banff, glad I stayed at this hostel. Clean rooms and bathrooms, kitchen was cleaned regularly, common rooms felt comfortable to be in. Just a short walk from middle of town. Everyone was very friendly, especially the staff who helped me out a lot with anything I needed.

    The rooms are quite dark and dimly lit. The privacy curtains are very flimsy. Making the room feel a little oppressive. Beds are comfy, the hostel is in a great spot just outside of downtown with a 5 minute walk into town. Bathrooms are nice. Laundry is handy. Staff were excellent.

    I do usually love this hostel - large rooms with well spaced out bunks with curtains. Each bunk room has its own bathroom with shower. Also a quieter/tamer hostel than Samesun. Unfortunately my last stay, there was a mouse in my lower floor room - they moved me rooms upstairs without hesitation. This is not a fault of the hostel, as is the nature of Canadian winters and travelers possibly leaving the door open too long and leaving food out. The staff advised they are putting out traps.

    Really good location. The rooms are good as they have en suites. Only note is the app says they have free breakfast, yet they didn’t serve breakfast when we were there.

    The building is older but it is clean. More like a motel type setting with a private bathroom per room. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

    The hostel is on the far side of town, so be prepared to do a bit of walking. The beds are metal and squeak when you move. There are privacy curtains on the beds but they are very thin and have ripped in places. The shower pressure and temperature are awesome. The kitchen is fairly big and there is a liquor store within meters of the main office.
