    Great place to stay in Banff! I shared a room with 5 other girls but it didn’t feel cramped up. We shared 1 bathroom that is well maintained and clean. There are lockers in the room as well to put your valuables. Staff are very nice and knowledgeable about the area. Free breakfast in the morning, not the best but good enough. 10 min walk to downtown Banff, there are restaurants nearby and also a convenience store 1 min away. Overall great atmosphere! Would love to come back again :)

    I would have really enjoyed my stay except for one thing. I was in a room with 7 other guys. One of the guys snored so loudly that I ended up getting up at 1:30 in the morning and leaving. There was simply no point in staying any longer. I don't blame the hostel in any way for this. It's simply one of the hazards of sharing space with a number of other people. Could there be declared "non-snoring" rooms? Maybe. I also found the room too warm.

    The bedroom claimed 6 person, but there were actually 3 more people upstairs. It wasn’t too much of a problem other than everyone shared one toilet and shower that were the same room. That ended up affecting me multiple times.

    Clean and comfortable hostel. Fairly reasonably priced. The bar crawl was fun (though my hangover lasted for honestly DAYS.) Free breakfast is a nice perk. I only stayed one night but would stay here again for sure. Definitely felt like a party hostel! I'm sure that was emphasised by the bar crawl!

    Were not picking up phones during covid-19 outbreak. I was emailed saying that my reservation got canceled due to everything shutting down, but they still charged me. Their policy didnt change due to the circumstances, these people arent the kindest people. Definitely not understanding. I wont book with them ever again.
