    The staff was absolutely amazing from the first second we walked in! I can’t thank Neele enough for all her hard work and accommodating us. I would recommend Banff Samesun to any traveller. We had the best experience!

    Modern, clean hostel located in the heart of Banff. 5-10 minute walk to the nearest grocery store, restaurants, and shopping area. Would recommend for small groups or solo travellers!

    I loved my stay at the Samesun Hostel in Banff. Really had the feeling of being with family and friends right away. The rooms were super clean and the staff was amazing. Looking forward to my next visit at a Samesun Hostel!

    Based on the options available, this place was an absolute steal! Great location, great amenities and staff was really helpful with questions about transportation, laundry and storage. Safety protocols are being followed and rooms are at half capacity. Would absolutely stay again. Cheers!

    Such a great place filled with amazing people from all over! You’re guaranteed to make genuine connections with all sorts of cool people, everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The only reason I didn’t give it 10 stars was because a couple of the staff didn’t seem like they wanted to be there and thus weren’t very enthusiastic to help guests. Will point out though that Cooper, the supervisor at the hostel was an absolute gem! Such a sweet, friendly guy who will go out of his way to help you out!

    Great hostel! Unfortunately we felt uncomfortable at our first interaction with the young woman manning the front desk. She was extremely unwelcoming. We had a minor issue with our booking & we had to fight tooth and nail to receive any help from this woman, finally when management was called, our issue was promptly resolved in minutes. But she exclaimed that it was 'above her pay grade' and left us high and dry. This young staff member was condescending, demeaning and incredibly rude.

    Quite old. That sums up everything. Well, if you're in a budget, go ahead. Location is not bad.
