HI Banff was a great experience. We were upgraded to the new Mary-Belle building and it was lovely. New, clean and spacious. We had a wash-room in our bedroom and one of the bottom bunks was a double. There is a big common area with a fire place in the middle, a great place to hang out or read a book on the couch. The kitchen was great and well stocked, 3 huge fridges, and 2 large ovens. The free bus pass they give you is so handy, and we used it plenty of times. This hostel is great if you want a quieter stay, or if you there for a bit of a party, the bar in the main building was a lot of fun, and they had some great drink specials. The wi-fi was patchy, couldn't get a connection in the rooms, but the common areas it was okay. The staff were all lovely and helpful. We ended up staying for a week at this hostel instead of the planned 2 days. It was a great place to wind down and get sorted for the next stage of our holiday. Lovely hostel would highly recommend.
