    Great location - an easy walk to town

    There was not a lot of space to sit down for breakfast and bath was quite dirty

    Didn't use the kitchen but the food in the Beaver Bar was excellent and very good value for money.

    I liked having a shared kitchen with plenty of refrigerator/freezer space for food from my cooler. Internet was reasonably good. The staff was friendly and welcoming, including the bartenders. I liked meeting fellow travelers from abroad.

    A snorer my last night. In a room with six beds, even one such noisy person is a lot to deal with. On the plus side, he was considerate and brought earplugs for the others in the room. The room was hot and stuffy with only one window that opened. Lighting in the room was poor, even with the bunk lights, making reading difficult.

    Breakfast was decent and some staff were helpful

    The most expensive hostel ever and the room was boiling, when saying to staff they only said ‘keep the window open and fan on’. That wasn’t enough and they did have portable air conditioners that could have been installed. The staff didn’t even knew the hostel and wasn’t friendly, had to beg for ice to create a cold current with the fan that helped sleep. Next time if no other accommodation is available in banff, will stay at lake louise. Also others in the room were rude by keeping working on their phones or laptops with the light on in the room instead of using the common areas that are available
