    I was in Banff for Canada Day weekend and stayed 3 nights at Samesun. It was my first hostel experience and I really enjoyed my stay. It was really convenient that each bed had a light, fan, small shelf, and power strip next to it.

    It is cheap and at convenient location. We can have breakfast for free.It was so nice for me. But there is a bar and are many young guys. So It was noisy midnight. Low price, low quality.Well, it was good overall.
