    Really lovely staff and great proximity to town. Security was good, with keycards and lockers. Very hot showers. The only thing I could criticise is that the blankets provided are very thin - I wasn't super super cold, but given it was the middle of freezing winter, it would have been nice to have something more substantial.

    Great location, friendly staff, kitchen for those ones who prefer to cook. It’s very quiet. The only thing was that the room had just the beds and didn’t have anything where to leave your things so you have to suit yourself, but just a detail! Muy buena ubicación, staff amigable, tiene cocina para los que prefieren cocinarse. Es un hostal muy tranquilo. Lo único fue que no tenía ningún mueble o “veladores” de camarote/litera para poner tus cosas, solo las camas en la hab., pero solo un detalle!

    I stayed 2 nights here and the stay was good. Very close to the town of Banff (about a 5 minute walk) ample parking if you’ve got a car with you. Atmosphere in the hostel, there wasn’t really any. It was ok for what we used it for just sleeping! Rooms are quite hot at night so don’t be worried when they supply you with a thin blanket! Hostels are a great way of interacting with other travellers. Tad expensive for what it actually is, but Banff is quite pricey! $$$

    Pretty large simply furnished double bed room with large windows. The light Switch was outside(!) of the room The shared bathroom was clean and quite large but the sink was in a really unpractical position right next to the door. The kitchen and „common area“ is in the basement with only small windows and a quiet uncomfortable atmosphere.

    While the location and staff were wonderful, overall I was unimpressed with my stay. The rooms were quite worn for what I paid. But what really put a wrench in my stay was that the beds squeaked ENDLESSLY. It was nerve wracking to have to climb the rickety bunk bed to the top, and impossible to do much as move an inch without waking up the entire room.

    No one there at all to help me check in, and rather ignorant. Beds were so beyond creepy and loud that I couldn’t sleep all through the night, showers were small and dirty , rooms were basic and unwelcoming. It had the feel of a drug addicts half way house. I’m an experienced traveller and this is rated one of the worst I’ve stayed in. Large deposit needed for the key and all bedding including pillows and blankets are received at the check in which is bizarre. And it’s actually a hotel lol!Avoid
