Unauthorized Entry Incident I booked an entire room at Hi Banff Alpin center,May 18-20, we checkin, hand in all our IDs, paid. On the first night, around 3 AM (when everyone was in deep sleep) a staff, young male, unlocked and entered our room. He was two meters into our room when my nephew who was awake, confronted him. He started asking about a strange name, and then left. This incident was distressing, considering the hostel's security, which include a security door requiring a key for entry.

The location is a little way out of town, not the most convenient ever. But other than that I have no complaints, the staff were all fantastic, organising lots of events and generally helping to give the hostel a friendly and fun vibe. The rooms were comfy with plenty of storage, though it did get a bit hot at night when I went (May).

I’m sure this hostel is great when it’s not undergoing renos! The bar and cafe were closed and the lobby and locker room were even closed on our check out date. No social activities being held either. We wouldn’t have minded if we’d been given a heads up, but we didn’t find out about any of these things until after check in - felt a bit dishonest. I think it would have been fair to give people a cut on rates knowing that some amenities wouldn’t be available. This hostel isn’t terrible, just ok.
