          After all bad reviews I read I was surprise how great was our stay here. Very friendly customer service, all areas nice and clean, even the breakfast wasn' t as poor as I expected. I definitely recommend this place. Good location, good deal.

          This is the worst hostel I have stayed in by far! Dismal customer service, bunk beds that rattle whenever a person moves. The walls appeared to have been made paper thin, one can hear all the commotion of people walking, entering in the next room....More

          Stayed at this hostel twice and enjoyed it! Good kitchen, strong wifi, friendly staff and well kept. Sweet travelling environment :) Close to downtown Banff which may be why you pay a bit more, worth enquiring about weekly rates though :) Would recommend.
