No internet. there is a WIFI but internet never works. hostel is far from downtown.The hostel is poorly kept and the staff is terrible. Somebody was booked in my room at the same time as me on my first day, lets say that it didn't end up well. The second day i saw a guy being expelled from the property for helping people picking up garbage on new years eve because he crossed a door and was not staying at the hostel. A real nice guy that was stuck in the parking lot with his truck. He had no rights to get in just to warm up while waiting for AMA. Then i decided i would leave but everything is booked in Banff.
Now i have to stay in Canmore. Thanks to them for ruining my vacations. TERRIBLE management. DISGUSTING customer service. I will never go back there. The only thing that was good was the vibe of the place and the people staying there.
Stay away at all cost.
