    The room was very spacious for 6 persons with attached bathroom (much better than Samesun Vancouver). The bed is comfortable. Good simple breakfast and good location which is only a few walk away from shops. Would recommend this hostel.

    Great location on central strip of Banff. Parking available which is amazing. Staff were overly friendly and welcoming. Room quality, bathroom and linen all to satisfaction. Would recommend anyone travelling solo - free breakfast and 3.50 pints at happy hour definitely a winner!

    Hi Haley, Thanks for the feedback. Hosteling and staying in dorm rooms does mean that you will share the space with other travelers. We have staff on around the clock to help with any issues with your roommates if they do arise - but we...More
