    I had a great time at Samesun! The staff were super friendly and the vibes were great. I loved the atmosphere that the Beaver Bar provided. I will definitely be returning on my next trip to Banff.

    The hostel was conveniently located in the town of Banff. Few steps away from a gas station about 2 blocks away from IGA(grocery store). Everything was very centric. Staff was nice and breakfast being available every morning was a plus. Room was a good size and layout was nice. Only thing I would suggest is for bath tubs to be replaced. They seem to be old and stained. Asides from that fine. As far as noise I had no issues. There's a bar downstairs but you don't hear a thing after 9pm.

    The bar was a great way to meet people and was busy every night I was there. The girl at the front desk was very kind and helpful! It’s a 10 min walk to downtown but not great when it’s cold out! Overall, would stay again!

    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.

    Nice hostel given that there only 2 real options in town. The only complaint I have was that it was damn loud. I mean the already creeky beds were shaking from the thumping from the in-house bar... which was located about 10m from the dorm. I took the standard precautions and tossed in the earplugs but it didn't do anything to stop 'Sweet Caroline' from resonating within my chest cavity. Also the 12am quiet time is a guideline only. Great for socializing but don't expect to get much sleep.
