Was my 25th birthday, decided it was a good time to check out Banff! We had a lot of fun.
We checked out the little boutiques downtown. Typical tourist town with gift shops and other more expensive ones.
Our hostel was great. Easy to find, clean and friendly staff! We rented a 6 bed dorm and it was perfect for us. The bar scene was a lot of fun! The game of flip-pong was sweet! The location is great because you can easily walk to the bars and restaurants, so no flipping coins on who needs to be the sober driver! Woohoo!
So, I definitely recommend this hostel to whoever wants to have a fun weekend on a budget!
