    I'd never stayed in a hostel before, but I enjoyed my experience here. The staff and all my fellow travelers were very friendly. The location allows for easy access to downtown Banff and all the amenities that area offers. The place is well cared for, but it's a hostel so I didn't expect it to be squeaky clean. I really appreciated the attached bar and common areas that allowed for meeting a variety of interesting people.

    Was a great hostel. The atmosphere was fun, the food and drink was good plus cheap and the staff were especially accommodating. Would have stayed longer if I knew what it was like.

    Great location easy to walk into town. Sketchy carpets in the room but huge shower. Good bar atmosphere although small space. Breakfast was below average (the Samesun Vancouver was much better). All in all an ok place to crash for a night or two, nothing special.

    Expensive for what you get. Noise due to the bar downstairs. Kitchen and coming room are small for the number of people (one sink...) Breakfast is simple but good
