    The hostel is in a great location in downtown Banff, it has friendly staff and clean rooms with comfortable bunk beds. The bar downstairs is fun, affordable and has a great happy hour with lots of entertainment of an evening time.

    Excellent location in the town, easy check in and check out, friendly staff. The biggest plus was the beds. Comfortable pillows and blanket, a personal lamp, and small fan. The rooms are also really well soundproofed so if you need to head to bed early but there is noise from the bar - you will not be able to hear it. I was very comfortable and not disturbed whatsoever (and I am a very poor sleeper). 10/10 would come back.

    Other than the room being a bit warm, it was great. Free breakfast, well priced and delicious food and drinks at the pub. I would stay again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others!

    My stay here was great! We spent most of our time out and about hiking in Banff and this was a great home base. Free breakfast in the morning was nice, they have nightly events if you do want to meet people, and the rooms worked well for what we needed. The staff was also SO friendly.

    Nice hostel located not far from center. The rooms de luxe are quite spacy and very clean. Fireplace in the room but apparently only for decoration. A bit of noisy in the evening wouldn’t say party hostel but can be loud as people are Screaming and shouting loudly in the kitchen in the evening . Nice kitchen and supermarket available not far from hostel. Bus to lake Louise also close by. Overall good place to stay and would stay again here
