    I stayed in a 6 person only female room for a night! There was only one other lady in the room with me. I like that the beds have curtains :). It was clean and quiet and cheap! Just what I needed.

    Location is PERFECT. I travelled alone & didn’t rent a car, the hostel was walking distance to everything I needed. Bus stops, IGA, Liquor store, & Down Banff. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a quiet place to stay.

    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.

    Nice location right downtown Banff, about an hour from lake Louise and moraine lake. Room is decent but bed is squeaky and the door slams hard. Was nice to have our own bathroom in the room but, The shower was too strong. Has parking which was nice. Overall a pretty good place for a night or two

    It wasn’t the cleanest hostel I’ve been too. I agree the location is amazing and walking distance from everything. However, there were cockroaches in the room.
