    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!

    Loved my stay at Samesun Banff. Staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. The kitchen space was good with an appropriate range of cooking equipment, common room was comfortable enough. Bedrooms were nice and large and there was locker access for valuables. Powerpoints and lamps at each bed were really handy as well as a bathroom in the bedroom. The guests are also super friendly, great bar (and deals/happy hour) and fun activities on everyday.

    Great location, close to the town and petrol stations, friendly staff, good kitchen and common room. Dorms needed a good hoover and new pillows. Definitely not enough bathrooms either.

    Great bar downstairs with good happy hour deals! Walking distance from town and near bus stop for free shuttle to snow fields. However bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner and the kitchen was a little small!
