    My stay at this hostel was amazing, I've stayed at many hostels all over the world, and this is definitely top 5. The staff are so genuine and happy to help, nothing is too much hassle. The dorms/common areas were cleaned frequently & the hostel is in a great location. I'd like to personally thank Kate, Jack, Naomi, Thomas, Jai, John, Sarah, Cole, Marlee, Ethan, Liam, Zane, Sam, Dom, Charlie, Adam, G, Chewie, Phil, mitch, Alex, Chad, Teehee 😁

    I have zero complaints about Samsun! My friend and I actually were supposed to stay at another hostel for our last night in Banff but we canceled so we could stay at the Samsun to enjoy our last night. :) The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and everything was worth it. I would 100% recommend someone to stay here!

    I visited for my birthday weekend and had an absolute BLAST!! The bar lends itself to meeting new people while providing activities that can easily facilitate new friendships and adventures. We were able to walk to the Dancing Sasquatch and had SO much fun. I will say, i was very disappointed with the perking situation as we had rented a car to drive from Calgary, and with fresh deep snow, seeing the road was very difficult especially when looking for parking in an unfamiliar place. Only con imo
