As an 18-year-old single female hiker, safety was a big concern. I chose the Samesun for it's great reviews, and I was not let down. I absolutely loved staying here. I appreciated the lockers in the bedrooms (bring your own lock), and th esafety and security of the building. Loved the free breakfast, and I had a fantastic time. I plan on additional trips to Vancouver & Venice Beach, and I plan to stay in the other Samesun hostels there. The location of the Banff hostel was right downtown, and I honestly could not have asked for anything better. Cheap, quality, and awesome. 5 stars from me!
