    Really enjoyed my stay here. Comfy beds and big rooms with lots of space. The bathroom was cleaned every day and they had towels for free. Also had free parking on a first come first serve but 2 streets behind was also free and not far to walk. I would recommend they put on more social activities or had a sign up sheet for the walks etc. quite hard to meet others as a solo traveller.

    Was such a great place to stay! The rooms are super spacious, the beds are comfy and clean. The bar downstairs provided some great vibes and it’s a super convenient location. The bathroom smelt a little mouldy and the microwave in the kitchen would turn off frequently making it difficult to heat up food, but all in all, minor inconveniences. Thanks guys!

    The Samesun Banff is in a convenient location to buses and town. My six bed female room has a nice view and fresh air. The staff and guests are helpful and welcoming. The taco from Taco Tuesday is delicious and so are the complimentary bran muffins and pancakes. I would stay again.

    It was okay. Nothing like other hostels we went to in Canada, though. Very poor parking. Loud! Nice staff and pretty clean.
