We stayed in Banff over the new year period in a private room. Great service at reception, very helpful and welcoming. 24 hour service as well.
The room was clean and the beds were really comfortable! Lots of storage space in the room as well.
All rooms were deep cleaned during our stay and it was good to see that the hostel has a high standard of cleanliness.
The kitchen is quite limited in space, however lots of storage areas. We cooked meals during the day so we could avoid the busy dinner period.
Note - No freezer provided.
Although a good 20 minutes walk out of downtown banff, the hostel offers a free bus pass for you throughout your time at the hostel, an the buses run every 40 minutes.
The only downfall was every time someone closed a door on our level it echoed throughout the hall way into the rooms. We understood that over New Years it was going to be busy, however once it quieted down the doors still woke us up at night.
There was no overhead on New Year's Eve at the bar downstairs, which was good as every where downtown was almost $100. Really great drink prices as well!!
