    Amazing place to stay in Banff. Huge commercial-style kitchen with lots of storage space for everyone. The rooms are spacious and the hostel is very close to everything you'd need in town. Would stay here again for sure.

    This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a basic place to sleep! The room had lockers and the place felt pretty safe. Due to covid rooms were not being filled so no overcrowding and plenty of space for everyone. They were very accommodating when I decided to stay an extra day. It's about a 5 minute walk to downtown but all the hotels along Banff ave have restaurants so you can find a place to eat even closer.

    I was travelling with my two children. We wanted to experience staying at a hostel. The kids loved the bunk beds but for the same amount of money or less we could have stayed at a hotel. I liked it but there were no savings to be had. I paid the same or more than I would for a hotel and didn't get things like extra towels and moisturizer.

    Had some neighbours that were being pretty loud all night, but staff handled it. They had great knowledge of the area and were very helpful. Floor could have been cleaner, but aside from that was a very good experience.

    I could recommend this hostel. It’s really more of a motel than a hostel, and although COVID must slow things down, there’s not much of a common area and there’s zero atmosphere at the moment. That said, the room was great, the bed was amazingly comfy and the price is great. The staff were also really nice. Maybe during normal times this place has an atmosphere, but either way, if your looking for a great-value private room, this place is it.

    Not the best hostel I've stayed in, especially for the price. It's a bit expensive for what you get. Only a tiny bit cheaper than airbnb's and some hotels in the area.
