My husband and I stayed here in July 2012. Our room was small but clean. The mattress was not firm at all, so I'd recommend that they get new mattresses soon. While we were there, it was very hot, and because the room was small with only 1 small window, we were very hot. We requested a fan and got one very quickly. AC would have been wonderful, but we made do.
No problems with the bathrooms. Clean and not crowded.
The kitchen was also clean and not crowded when we used it. We tend to eat dinner early, so we had no problems. Even when we used the kitchen to get our breakfast ready was not a problem -- clean and not crowded.
The complimentary bus passes were fantastic! A great way to get into town quickly! Very helpful! It was nice to leave the car there and not have to deal with parking in town. Loved that!
We would stay here again to take a break from our usual tent camping. It's a good hostel. For Banff, it's affordable lodging.
