    This was my first experience of travelling by myself and I was a little apprehensive! There was no need to be though as my stay at the Samesun Banff was wonderful. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and everywhere was very clean. The Beaver Bar was always full of friendly travellers and made the whole experience very sociable which I was hoping for! The location is ideal - just a short walk into the centre of Banff. I would recommend unreservedly. Thank you!

    After my first great stay, I ended up cancelling my accommodation at another hostel to come back here instead! Highly recommended, and the bar downstairs is great!

    Pros: Great location. Walking distance to Downtown Banff. Loved the bar downstairs w/cheap tasty beer. Plenty of street parking. Friendly Bartender. Daily planned group activities. Cons: The bunk beds are very creaky(Also, I'd recommend grabbing the bottom bunk and grabbing the bunk that is the farthest away from the door). Breakfast is very light. It's a mad rush to the toaster. Plan for an early lunch or bring snacks.

    Great location, nice happy hour and very friendly staff. Most frustrating part was having 1 bathroom (shower and toilet) shared between a 10 bed mixed dorm. The lockers are rather small, cannot fit a carry-on suitcase inside. Each bed had a power strip to charge multiple devices, and a small personal fan which was nice.

    Extremely noisy hostel that doesn't follow any quiet hours! Loud music throughout the whole night! No respect from staff, noise could of been reduced but staff insisted on keeping the door open between rooms and bar! Avoid staying here, unless your a party animal!!
