Left here the other day. Very helpful reception staff, welcoming and friendly. The centres location was fine, about a 20 minute downhill walk to town. There was plug sockets by each bed so there was no plug issues. The wifi was very patchy and the rooms were cramped and stuffy with small windows. The corridors were not well kept either. The kitchen space was good and kept clean. Overall, it was not a place where I would go back to, but wasn't too bad.

Great spot, away from the Banff Ave shops, but a short 5 minute drive away. We stayed in cabin #1 with our toddler and it was perfect! Quiet and clean with an a/c unit, TV, couch, two beds, private bathroom with shower, coffee and hot water maker. The fridges in the kitchen were great for storing food for our son and sandwich makings and coffee creamer for ourselves. Because we were traveling with a kid, we didnt spend much time in the main lobby or internet spaces. We dos enjoy a hike behind the hostel and even saw two deer.

An amazing hostel, especially since it was our first with a kid!

Lovely room with toilets and showers close by. Fan provided as it was super hot. Loads to do on site including a bar and restaurant or a short(ish) walk into town or you can catch a bus from the main road.

All staff really nice and helpful. Would definitely stay again!

Stayed in the cabins for one night on one of our mountain trips out snowboarding. Was a bit expensive, but most likely due to it being the weekend. The cabin was clean and the beds were comfy. Staff we dealt with we're nice. Can't comment on the kitchen as we didn't use it. Would stay again, maybe not the cabins (the dorms are probably cheaper).

Although a little out of town. Let this not deter you. Complimentary return bus pass available. bus is very frequent. Super friendly staff. AC is non existent in common areas but they provide fans in room but the place is clean an safe and very pretty with lovely Bistro. The town f Banff is so cute. Lots of shops, eateries and pubs. Pay a visit to the information centre they are simply fantastic. Would recommend this hostel. No problem.
