    Had the best time at Samesun - such a clean and fun hostel. Spoke to the manager Katy for some help and she was really lovely, as were all the staff especially the front desk guys Sophie, Katie, Brad, Harley and Joey. Loved the beaver bar too :)

    Staff were all very friendly, and helpful. It was my first time staying in a hostel and I wasn’t disappointed. Clean rooms, comfy beds. Location is great, just walk down the streets for shops, pubs, restaurants. The atmosphere was great, I met lots of people, and Friday night music bingo at the hostel’s bar was an absolute blast!

    Great hostel. Such a great way to meet people. Bar is always great vibes, no matter the day of the week! Very loud, but can’t hear anything in the upstairs room. Good happy hour -$4 beers! Nice touch is the fireplaces in the rooms which actually heat the rooms up. I love this hostel and will definitely stay again.

    Samesun Banff is ok, nice location and dorms. Staff is not very friendly, and all the common areas were small and FREEZING (+/- 15 c) so really not confortable when you are back from a outdoor day in winter time at -30 c. The shower was disgusting in my female dorm, need a big wash. I will not go back there personnally.
