    A wonderful stay in Banff. Such lovely staff, rooms were perfect and location is unreal. I stayed at Samesun for over a month and loved it. John, Katy and Megan were so great and helpful, would 100% recommend to stay here and will be returning. Kitchen is clean, comfy beds, on suites in the room are practical, nothing bad to say. Shame it’s Covid times otherwise would be even better.

    Every time I've stayed at Samesun Banff I've been greeted in a friendly and professional manner, Thanks Katy and Neela for making me feel so welcome. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. Each member was so friendly, always willing to go out of their way to make sure all my questions were answered and I was happy. I highly recommend staying at the Samesun Banff, not only are the rooms nice and comfortable but the food at the bar is very good and cheap so perfect if on a budget.

    I had stayed with the Samesun Vancouver when I first arrived in Canada, the experience there was great! So when it came to somewhere to stay in Banff, the choice of hostel was a no brainer! The facilities and rooms are well kept after and their social distancing measures are great! The staff there are friendly, welcoming and always up for a chat and to share info on the town. The barman is a lovely fellow, along with the front desk team. 10/10 would recommend

    Terrific location near all downtown amenities. Have their very own Beaver Bar with daily happy hours and great themes (taco Tuesday was my favorite) Wif connection is strong around the entire hostel. Very friendly and welcoming staff! Neele, Katy, Katie, Joey, Jack, John, Cooper, Megan, and Nic made the experience all the more enjoyable! 10/10 would recommend Samesun Banff to anyone visiting the area.
