I stayed in the SameSun in July and it was fine. Banff was pretty busy, but I found a decent room (not in the newer part, but the oldder part). The people I was sharing with were fine, they weren't noisy, didn't pinch anything and we only met up when we were coming back or going out. Which is why it's great that the staff are sociable, as a solo traveller, it was nice to speak with workers and travellers alike in the outside communal area (we even had a bbq there). I think the newer section is more expensive but better quality, however I had nothing to complain about in terms of the quality, it is decent value for money.
