I had an amazing stay at Samesun Banff. Great location. You can easily visit the town of Banff just walking from there. FYI if you're driving, the parking under the hostel is usually full during the evening so you'll have to park a short walk away. The bar inside the hostel is a great place to socialize. The staff is also very friendly, especially Hele. I really enjoyed talking with her!

I really enjoyed my stay here. The location was great on Banff avenue very close to shops bars and busses to other sites in the park. The staff were nice, the free breakfast had good options with fruit and toast, pancakes . The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy, I liked the curtains around each bunk it was a nice touch. There were events and thigns in in the social and variety people to chat to and hang out if wanted. Overall great stay and would recommend .
