    The hostel and staff were great but it seemed a little expensive. The bunk beds were SO noisy. Every time anyone in the room moved around there was a loud creaking squeaking noise. We all noticed it.

    The only affordable accommodation in Banff, especially if booking at the last minute, if you do not mind sleeping in a bunk bed in a room with other people and sharing a bathroom. The shared kitchen was a good place to prepare and store food (including a number of fridges/freezers).

    The staff is not very informative with amenities. The room was dark and I wasn’t told there was a bathroom in it. Also the kitchen and TV rooms close at 11:00 and don’t reopen until 6:00 am. Not good for late arrivals or early risers. The beds are metal and noisy. And don’t forget pretty hard. Very limited parking as well

    You're paying for the location. Rooms are fine. There is little to no atmosphere or sense of community about the place. If you want a reasonably clean place to stay in Banff centre then this will do.

    It’s a place to stay, but that’s about it. It definitely isn’t a typical hostel... the rooms are in the basement of a hotel. If you want a normal hostel experience/environment, pay more and go to the other ones in town.. it’s worth it

    Looking for the local prison? Look no further! You’re in luck. It has everything a prison has to offer, minus the bars and cavity checks. We walked into eight bunk bed, one shower/toilet and nasty floors. The sink didn’t drain, the shower flooded out onto the floor and the beds were beyond squeaky. You would have hoped someone was getting lucky with the noise. 8 girls, one bathroom? Convenient. Needless to say we didn’t last more than one night here. Take your money elsewhere friends!

    Except the location, nothing was good at all. We were treated as if we are refugees. The floor in the room was damaged. Don't even talk about cleanliness. Only free coffee, No other facility at all. Security????, Are you joking? Atmosphere - Just wanted to sleep & get out of the room asap. We had booked 2 beds, We were in on Sunday - Aug. 10 & left the next day Monday, Aug. 11, Room # 101 - Bed 4 & 5. Will NEVER RECOMMEND ANY ONE. Sorry for being very straightforward.
