We decided quite late on Friday afternoon to go to Banff from Edmonton and Samesun was the first place we called. We were assisted by a friendly lady called Amanda and were able to make a reservation over the phone without any hiccups. We arrived late but Kate was manning the reception desk and provided detailed information about the hostel and surrounding areas. All the facilities were clean and we stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm room with an en-suite bathroom, the only downside was the bed was a bit uncomfortable. Breakfast was included and was a mix of reveals, muffins, fruit and pancakes, all delicious! You can also buy your ski pass here which gives you access to all 3 ski areas. We opted for Lake Louise Ski and it was amazing! Overall, a great stay!
