I only booked one night to begin with and ended up staying 4 nights. It has a lot of services that give you more then expected in a hostel like very clean rooms, the bathroom is in the room and thus only shared with your 5 or 7 room mates, not a whole floor. The front desk staff is very helpful specially Claire, with recommending restaurants, hikes, finding other backpackers for a trip. The only recomendations I could give to make it Excellent for next time is to make sure during breakfast hours that they don't run out of items too fast like muffins, syrup, clean spoons and dishes... AND although it's great to have The BeaverBar right there it is noisy and also after 11 it was hard to get some sleep. This said, I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to have a great time in Banff, to be central and to have a clean, safe place, it felt like home after a few nights (and days of hiking!)
