4 of us travelled together so we got a 4 bed dorm with 2 sets of bunk beds. I think it's excellent value for money. It's located walking distance to the main street. Decent sized bathroom with shower. Friendly staff. Easy to find on the way into town.

I booked a private room here during my last trip to Banff. It was an extremely good price, compared to everything else with similar amenities and location. Upon checking in, I found the room suitably clean and pretty much exactly as advertised; it was completely satisfactory. Over the course of the evening, I found that the room got very hot,... More

I booked 1 private room with 4 beds. I checked the white sheets thoroughly, and I am happy to report that there were no beg bugs. There is "quiet time" after 10PM (I think), but it was still noisy, especially when people were walking up and down the stairs. Overall, it was a good experience. I would definitely return.

Had some good nights at this hostel, clean and good beds. Breakfast was included which has good value, though if you arrived late there was only little left. Nice kitchen for cooking with good space. Place for buying alcohol just outside reception. Convenient.

Been there for one night stay. The rooms were as described in the website. Clean and comfortable. There was a problem with the toilet door. Coffee maker seemed out of order. But then ignored it as we were there only for one night.

We are a group of 3 and we got a female dorm type room for 6. We have the whole room for the three of us so it is like getting a private room instead for a very reasonable price. The reception staff are very accommodating and answers all inquiries about Banff tourist spots.

Stayed here for a week and the weekly rate is probably the cheapest you'll find in Banff. On the whole the people who stay are friendly and respectful. Rooms are small and cluttered and it is a bit of a walk to town. Wifi is very fast.

Stayed a night in both 4-bed dorms room and a private room, which are the options, I would recommend. Was also showed a much larger dorm room, but decided not to stay here, as It was totally crammed, smelly and anything but clean. Not sure if the guest or the owners were to blame. A very basic make-it-yourself breakfast is... More

Absolutely pathetic!!!! Debated leaving when I got here knowing I would lose 2 nights of charge. I really don't know if they clean their sheets after each persons stay. My friend and I have spent the first 2 hours of our stay laughing about how disgusting this place is. Dorm room smelt nasty so we switched to a private room.... More
