    What a hostel. Such a great atmosphere and awesome staff. The activities they run including the hike are great. The bar is a very good place to hang out at especially considering the cheap prices. I felt so welcomed here, I see myself returning one day. An exceptional hostel

    The center is very clean, and convenient to go every scenery spot. The staff were very kind and helpful. We went there in the morning to ask if we can store our food in their ketch freezer, they gave us a general check in card for access. Then we went there in the afternoon for our room check in.

    Excellent staff at the hostel. Very polite and helpful. The restaurant serves fresh and tasty food and the bar is a cosy place to unwind after an adventurous day. Absolutely worth the money! Commute to downtown is very convenient and absolutely free !

    This was a nice comfortable hostel. They give you free bus tickets for local transit which is a great bonus. You need to take a bus to the hostel from the centre otherwise it's a 30 min uphill walk. That's the only downside since buses are only every 30 min or so. They also don't have free breakfast like other hostels I've stayed at. I still had a good experience here though!

    The HI Alpine in Banff was a great accommodation for us . It had all we needed and a great reasonable place to have supper and breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. The location was great with transit service right to the property.

    I enjoyed staying at the hostel as it was also my first time being in one. Staff was friendly and helpful! The nights were good most of the time, but you get the loud thumps from above and loud noises next door, but overall still good! Bathrooms could use more attention for cleaning but wasn’t too bad. I would definitely come back!

    Great hostel. Would go back again. Has a great bar. Has a large and clean kitchen where you can take individual carts to place your items in the fridge and outside. The toilets could be more clean.
